Ray Lewis Denies PED Use

Ray Lewis

Ray Lewis was given a product to help heal his torn triceps that contains a banned substance, according to a Sports Illustrated report that will appear on newsstands Monday. The Baltimore Ravens linebacker has not tested positive and denies using it, a team official told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio.

Mitch Ross, a co-owner of Sports with Alternatives to Steroids (SWATS), told Sports Illustrated that he spoke to Lewis shortly after the linebacker tore his triceps Oct. 14 and he requested products that could help speed up his recovery. Deer-antler spray was among the prescribed treatments. Deer-antler spray contains a substance, IGF-1, on the NFL’s banned list.

SWATS is the subject of an in-depth profile in Sports Illustrated’s next issue. A version of the story also was posted on SI.com.

Lewis dismissed the report when asked about it at Super Bowl media day Tuesday in New Orleans.

“Two years ago, it was the same report. I wouldn’t give that report or him any of my press. He’s not worthy of that. Next question,” Lewis said.
