University of Florida quarterback reportedly suspended after positive test for performance-enhancing drugs

University of Florida quarterback Will Grier has been suspended for the season after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs), multiple outlets reported early Monday afternoon.

A suspension for PEDs at the college level is a rare occurance as the NCAA only tests athletes at championship competitions. Outside of those, schools are responsible for testing and punishing their own athletes.

Grier led Florida to a 6-0 start, most recently a dominant 21-3 win over SEC rival Missouri. They are currently ranked 8th in the country in the AP Poll. Treon Harris is expected to replace Grier as the starting quarterback.
