The NFL suspended Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib four games for using Adderall, ESPN.com reported Saturday. Talib reportedly does not plan to appeal his suspension, which starts Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. "Around the beginning of training camp, I made a mistake by taking an Adderall pill without a prescription," Talib said. "This is especially regrettable because, for the past several months, with Coach (Greg) Schiano's help, I've worked very hard to improve myself -- professionally and personally -- as a player and a man. I am truly sorry to my teammates, coaches and Buccaneers fans, and I'm disappointed in myself." Talib is eligible to return to the team Nov. 5. "I have spoken with Aqib, and he knows that he made a poor decision that let our team down," Schiano said. "Certainly, other players will have the opportunity to step up while he serves this suspension." Talib was also suspended without pay in the 2010 regular-season opener and fined for an additional game for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. That came from an altercation he had with a St. Petersburg, Fla., taxi cab driver during training camp in 2009. He avoided a suspension for his 2011 arrest in connection with a shooting in Texas. However, those charges were eventually dropped.
