Sports Illustrated or SI has reported in a future magazine that Ray Lewis was given a banned substance. Ray Lewis has not tested positive for the drugs and denied the thought of using.
So why would this come upon Ray if he has passed the drug test? The reason is that a product Lewis used to heel his triceps after tearing it on October 14 contained IGF-1 on the NFL's banned substance list. It was contained in a product known as deer ankle spray and Mitch Ross, a co-owner of Sports with Alternatives to Steroids (SWATS) said he spoke with Ray shortly after the injury and Lewis asked for products to speed up his recovery, because he wanted to be out on the field as soon as possible.
"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. This was in an interview on Tuesday in New Orleans. Also this was said by the Ravens Vice President of Communications, Kevin Byrne "Ray has been randomly tested for banned substances and has never failed
a test. We have never been notified of a failed test. He has never been
notified of a failed test,"
