NEW YORK

The NFL has lifted its suspension on Giants running back Andre Brown for violating the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy.

"Suspension lifted !!!!!!!! Thank God," Brown posted on his Twitter account Friday after learning the league had overturned its decision.

Brown was hit with a four-game ban in May after he reportedly tested positive for Adderall, which he takes to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

The 25-year-old immediately appealed the suspension, saying Adderall was something he had been taking since entering the league in 2009.

"I just forgot to fill out some paperwork and that was it," he said.

Brown, a fourth-round draft pick out of North Carolina State, missed his entire rookie year with a ruptured Achilles tendon and spent all of last season on the practice squad.

He was no higher than fourth on the depth chart at running back, behind Ahmad Bradshaw, D.J. Ware and Da'Rel Scott.
