Marcus Washington Had a Urine Test "Flagged" Last Year
 
[QUOTE]
During a routine round of mandatory drug testing last August, Washington's urine sample was flagged as suspicious, and by league rule he was placed in stage one of the NFL's substance abuse program. His urine was classified as diluted -- a potential sign of a player using a masking agent to hide illegal performance enhancers from drug screens. He was subjected to random testing throughout the season, pregame urine testing, and most humiliating, friends say, psychiatric evaluation.

Washington never tested positive, and thus never entered stage two of the program, which often calls for a player to serve a mandatory four-game suspension and to have his name publicized. But people close to Washington say they watched him sink into fits of depression and anger, hurt by the rigidity of a process that treated him as if he were a criminal.

He is now convinced that it ruined his season.

Interesting. I'm going to completely steer clear of speculation on this; instead I'd just like to comment on how quiet the team kept this. In a sport with such heavy media coverage, and a channel devoted to its coverage 24/7, you'd think something would have leaked out. It's impressive that when the team wants to keep something on the DL, they can still lock it down.

I wonder what classifies as diluted sample? Would drinking a gallon of water, milk, or Gatorade dilute your urine before a test?

Don't know how to comment on this. I mean, I believe in innocent until proven guilty. I also understand the importance of being a step ahead of everybody else...since it is a competition...

I would like to hear more of the story......

MW will be fine and have another solid season for us, maybe even another pro bowl nod.

You're asking a lot of a guy that came off surgery and is 30 years old...but I hope you're right.

I hope he bounces back from this, he's one of the leaders on this team and he brings a lot of energy and positivity to us. It's sad to hear that when this happens to a person like him, he becomes the exact opposite of what he usually is.

If it wasn't a big deal last year then why should it be this year? I'm quite sure that if anything showed we would have heard about it. As someone already mentioned diluted could mean anything. Maybe he ate a pooppy seed bagel that morning with a lot of water to wash it down.
