Report: Cowboys LB Rolando McClain’s Career Is In Jeopardy After He Gained 40 Pounds Abusing ‘Purple Drank’

According to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report, currently suspended Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain has gained forty pounds after abusing the recreational drug called, “purple drank”, which is a combination of Sprite and codeine (found in cough syrup).

“Purple drank” can lead to rapid weight gain, which is what Cole says happened to McClain.

Cole was told by a source that McClain is “incredibly out of shape” after the weight gain and believes that it is “almost impossible” that the Cowboys linebacker will ever play for the team again.
