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.

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.
