Ravens linebacker Patrick Queen, fresh off a standout performance in the team’s Week 1 victory over the Houston Texans, found himself facing an unexpected hurdle when he was randomly selected for a drug test for the second time in a span of just three days.
Queen, who notched an impressive 11 tackles and a crucial sack on Texans rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud during Sunday’s game, expressed his surprise and skepticism at being chosen for another drug test so soon after his previous one.
Bro I literally just got drug tested 3 days ago again already???? @NFL

The 2019 first-round pick, known for his consistent presence on the field since joining the Ravens in 2020, has never missed a game in his NFL career.
Over 51 games, Queen has accumulated an impressive stat sheet, recording 332 tackles, 28 quarterback hits, 11 sacks, 3 interceptions, 10 passes defended, and 29 tackles for a loss.

Despite his stellar performance and clean record, Queen’s random selection for a second drug test within days has raised questions about the NFL’s testing procedures and their timing.
