The Denver Broncos' official website reports Broncos RB Travis Henry has won his appeal and will not be suspended for one-year for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. The Broncos issued the following in a statement Tuesday afternoon: "We are pleased with this outcome and happy that Travis has been absolved of any wrongdoing with respect to this matter. The Broncos look forward to Travis Henry’s continued participation on the playing field." Henry had also been battling a partially torn posterior cruciate ligament in recent weeks, and his work Sunday at Oakland was his first since he suffered the injury on Nov. 4 at Detroit. "Travis Henry will remain in the substance abuse program, must continue to adhere to all aspects of it, but will not be suspended following his appeal," the NFL announced in a statement Tuesday. "The defense of hair samples and lie detector tests was irrelevant and unconvincing, but our substance abuse program is based on meeting the highe st standards and respecting player rights in all phases of its administration."
