NFL Will Investigate Peyton Manning for PED Usage

1 minute read

The NFL will do a full investigation of the allegations that Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning received human growth hormone, according to the Associated Press.

The investigation currently doesn’t have a timetable for completion, however, it is not expected to start until after the Broncos play the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7.

The allegations arose after Al Jazeera reported that Manning’s wife had received shipments of HGH from an Indianapolis anti-aging clinic.

The report also pointed to drug use by several other NFL players, including Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison and Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews.

Charles Sly, the intern that originally made the claim that these players received HGH, has recanted his story.

Manning has been adamant in denying the claims that he received performance-enhancing drugs.
