Lewan lost his appeal of the four-game ban for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances, the NFL announced Friday. The left tackle is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games. He will be allowed to return to the Titans' active roster on Monday, Sept. 30, following the team's Week 4 game at Atlanta.
Lewan announced he was facing the four-game suspension last month in an emotional video. The 28-year-old said at the time he was facing the suspension due to a failed drug test for Ostarine. Lewan said he unknowingly took the substance and added he took a lie detector test.
As with most appeals for PED violations, however, Lewan's suspension was upheld.
