Draft Scout Ahmad Black News
11/23/12 - S Ahmad Black returned to practice Thursday after missing Wednesday with an illness.
11/07/12 - S Ahmad Black, who was cited by Tampa police last week for possession of a small amount of marijuana, has been disciplined internally but will play Sunday against the Chargers, coach Greg Schiano said Wednesday.
Schiano said he had some "candid conversations" with Black and addressed the team about the recent off-the-field issues that have made headlines. "Rest assured, it's been addressed," Schiano said.
Black was charged with possession of cannabis, less than 20 grams, according to court records. The charge is a first-degree misdemeanor. He was not arrested but given a notice to appear for the alleged offense, which occurred on Oct. 30. An arraignment is scheduled for Dec. 3. Black could still face penalties under the NFL's personal conduct policy, with discipline ranging from a fine to a suspension.
"It's pending right now - the full story will come out later on," Black said. "I"m just sorry to disappoint my teammates, and be a distraction right now. But everything else will take care of itself."
