Peyton Manning among pro athletes linked to HGH shipments

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning hasn’t played since Week 3 of the season as he has been dealing with plantar fascitis in his foot. It looks like the quarterback now has a much bigger problem to deal with.

According to multiple reports, Manning’s name has come up in an undercover probe that states several pro athletes’ names linked to HGH shipments.

ESPN stated that an Al Jazeera report says that HGH were sent to his house in his wife Ashley’s name. This may back up Manning’s claims that he never had anything to do with the illegal PED’s.

In a statement to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen on Saturday night, Manning vehemently denied the claims: “For the record, I have never used HGH. It absolutely never happened. The whole thing is totally wrong. It’s such a fabrication, I’m not losing any sleep over it, that’s for sure.”

This is certainly just the beginning of this situation. Make sure to stay with Campus Sports for the latest on this incident.
