01:13 PM ET 10.28 | The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will spend next weeks game against the Oakland Raiders without their top two cornerbacks as both have been suspended by the NFL for using the ADD drug Adderall. Aqib Talib is serving the final game of his four game suspension next Sunday while, barring a successful appeal, Eric Wright will be serving the first of his four game ban. Both players were busted by the NFL using the drug Adderall, which is prescribed by doctors to people with ADD. In case you're wondering, or haven't figured it out by now, the NFL isn't too keen on players using the drug without a prescription or without being notified of use. It appears that both Talib and now Wright failed to either secure a proper doctors note or notify the league they were taking the drug.
