Ricky Williams is reportedly appealing his most recent failed drug test, which if proven true, could end his 2006 season for the Miami Dolphins. Williams previous failed tests were for marijuana but, according to the story, the latest failure was for another illegal substance. The ruling on his appeal won't be until April.

Now, it'd be a shame to lose Ricky for the season. He'll always be a flake, but it's a less interesting NFL season without him and I'm hopeful that his little misstep was nothing more than an unknowing ingestion of an illegal substance, which probably won't play well either way based on his past history. Let's hope he blames Miguel Tejada for this. That'd be fun.
