Dexter Lawrence Failed Drug Test: Latest News & Updates

-

Clemson football star Dexter Lawrence has been in the headlines ahead of the No. 2 Clemson Tigers’ meeting with the No. 3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the College Football Playoff on Saturday, December 29. Lawrence is expected to miss out on the game due to a suspension stemming from a failed drug test.

On Thursday, December 27, just two days ahead of the national semifinal game, Lawrence was finally made available to the media and addressed the situation.

Lawrence had traces of ostarine — a SARM commonly used to help increase muscle mass and strength — in his system but he is hopeful that his B sample will come back clean and provide a different result.

“I know that I have no control on what the B sample result will be. I’m just here to support my teammates and try to be a leader,” Lawrence said, via The Greenville News. “I’m not the type of guy to do a selfish act like that. I have too much pride. I love this team and my family too much to even think about putting substance like that in my body. I don’t know where it came from. I don’t know how it got there.”

If he is unable to suit up for the Tigers, it will be a significant loss along the defensive front.

We will find out a resolution in the coming days.

Kickoff between the Tigers and Fighting Irish for the Cotton Bowl at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas is set for 4:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.
