Officials have not released the name of the player, a midfielder who returned an adverse analytical finding following the CONCACAF World Cup Qualifier against Honduras June 11, reports CMC.
"During the World Cup qualifying match between Honduras and Jamaica June 11, a member of the Jamaican squad returned an adverse analytical finding on his urine sample," said a statement from the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF).
The player has been informed and the JFF says it's awaiting further information from FIFA who conducted the test.
"I think there are extenuating circumstances, because the player in question did not even play in the game," Burrell shared.
"It is a sensitive matter and we have to try and protect the player and everybody, but I hope that things will work out in a way where it won't affect him. If you want to play, but you have some pain and you are sick and a doctor gives you something to help you, nobody can hold you responsible."
Jamaica will attempt to revive its CONCACAF World Cup campaign when it plays away against Panama Sep 6.
