|NFL sack leader Robert Mathis apologizes |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(5/21/14) Colts outside linebacker Robert Mathis apologized to his teammates for his four-game suspension, reports the Indianapolis Star. Mathis tested positive for Clomid, a fertility drug on the league's banned substance list, the report said.
"I shouldn't have (done) it,'' Mathis told the paper. "My bad. There's no question I'd like a re-do, but I can't take it back."
Mathis led the NFL with 19.5 sacks last year. He can participate in offseason workouts, training camp and preseason games before he starts serving his suspension.

(5/16/14) The Colts will be without star pass rusher Robert Mathis for the first quarter of the upcoming season, the NFL announced Friday.
Mathis will be suspended four games for a violation of the league's PED policy. He is coming off a career-best season, in which he recorded 19 1/2 sacks in 16 games.
|Colts largely healthy for Saturday's showdown |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(1/4/14) Though the Colts entered the Wild Card game against the Chiefs with an extensive list of injured players on the defensive side of the ball, all but one was able to play Saturday. Among the 10 players listed on the injury report, only defensive lineman Fili Moala (knee) was unable to play.
The list of Colts defenders able to play through injuries reads as follows: defensive backs Sergio Brown (groin), Darius Butler (quadriceps), Vontae Davis (groin) and Greg Toler (groin); linebackers Bjoern Werner (ankle) and Robert Mathis (not injury related); and defensive linemen Cory Redding (shoulder), Ricky Jean Francois (foot) and Aubrayo Franklin (knee).
|Robert Mathis snags Defensive Player of the Month honors |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(1/2/14) Colts linebacker Robert Mathis concluded the regular season in style, earning NFL Defensive Player of the Month honors. Mathis, whose team hosts Kansas City in the first round of the playoffs on Saturday, piled up 17 tackles, five sacks and four forced fumbles in December.
It was his second time he won the award this season, during which he led the league with 19 1/2 sacks and eight forced fumbles.
|Coming off a career-high 19.5 sacks, the sense is that pass rusher Robert Mathis will regress in 2014. That's not to mean he'll tank and deliver just a couple of sacks -- the guy averaged 9.8 sacks per season over his last nine years. But it does mean owners shouldn't expect him to pick up a slew of sacks again. A problem Mathis faces for Fantasy purposes is that he plays as a linebacker and doesn't get the tackle totals that the elite players get. Last year he totaled 59 tackles, the third-best number of his career. The best linebackers in Fantasy tend to get twice as many total tackles and still provide other stats. If you're in a league that doesn't award points for tackles then Mathis is a solid mid-round pick. But if tackles count then Mathis is probably more of a late-round choice.
