You probably weren’t wondering why D.J. Cooper – who went undrafted out of Ohio in 2013 then played professionally overseas – sat out last season.

You probably should have been.

Cooper submitted urine for a drug test that indicated he was pregnant, according to MMC RTV Slovenia. The urine reportedly originally belonged to his girlfriend.

That got Cooper a two-year suspension that covered last season and runs through next season.

The big question: Did Cooper already know his girlfriend was pregnant?
