ST. LOUIS (AP) - A federal judge has ordered a Florida supplements company to pay more than $5.4 million to St. Louis Rams linebacker David Vobora.

U.S. District Judge Rodney Sippel entered the order against the Anti-Steroid Program LLC of Key Largo, Fla., on Friday.

Vobora had sued the company over what he said was a contaminated supplement that led to a four-game suspension by the NFL for violating its anti-drug policy. The player says he used the company’s “Ultimate Sports Spray” in June 2009 without knowing it contained the banned substance methyltestosterone. His lawsuit accused the company of intentionally misleading him.

The judge’s order includes $2 million for damage to Vobora’s reputation.
