As if the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers need any more attention leading up to Super Bowl 50, now comes word of the NFL investigating the HGH allegations that surfaced last month against Peyton Manning.
From the AP:
League spokesman Brian McCarthy says the inquiry, which began weeks ago, involves reviews of records, interviews and coordination with other agencies.
Al Jazeera reported last month that an intern at an Indianapolis anti-aging clinic was secretly recorded suggesting that Manning’s wife received deliveries of HGH, which is banned by the league. Manning, then with the Colts, was rehabbing from shoulder surgeries.
The intern has since recanted the allegations, which were alleged to have happened in 2011. Manning has denied it all, calling it “complete garbage.”
It’s unlikely the investigation will be completed before the Super Bowl on Feb. 7.
