We all saw that defensive tackle C.J Mosley was sent home by the Detroit Lions on the eve of their match up against the Atlanta Falcons at Wembley.
Well, now we know why the 31-year old was made to pack his bags by head coach Jim Caldwell.
According to reports from ESPN, it was discovered that Mosley had been caught smoking marijuana in the team's London base, by the staff of the hotel.
No Smoke Joke
ESPN say that after the Lions moved from their 5-star hotel nestled in the English countryside, to a hotel in central London, Mosley disconnected a smoke alarm in his room that alerted the hotel security staff to check on the defensive tackle's room.
Mosley was discovered to be smoking marijuana in his room and was promptly suspended for two weeks by Caldwell and made to get on the next plane back to the States.

Back for Miami
It wasn't known whether or not Mosley's two week ban would equate to a two game ban or not - with the Lions on a bye this week - Caldwell would not clarify if Mosley would play against the Miami Dolphins in week 10.
"I think the statement stands on its own," Caldwell said. "If you take a look at it, read through it and kind of glean from it what you'd like. But we said two weeks and in two weeks, he'll return."
It seems then, that with Nick Fairley out indefinitely, Caldwell will be happy to welcome the smoker Mosley back for the visit of Ryan Tannehill, Mike Wallace and co.
