Report: Rolando McClain gained 40 pounds from abusing ‘Purple Drank’

The situation surrounding Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain just took another bizarre turn and this is one for the worst. According to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report, the latest developments have led many to believe McClain will not play for the Cowboys again.

Cole highlighted the latest buzz and said McClain has reportedly been abusing “Purple Drank,” a drink with codeine cough syrup.

As a result, McClain, who is suspended for the first ten games of the regular season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, has gained nearly forty pounds and he is out of shape.

So to recap:

You can watch Cole discuss the topic here.

Dallas opens the season on Sunday, Sept. 11 against the New York Giants.

It will be the first of many games without McClain on the field and it appears as though we shouldn’t expect to see him around the team anytime soon.
