    Ray Lewis may have used banned substance to recover from torn triceps?

    The good news is that linebacker Ray Lewis may not be facing many questions about a 13-year-old controversy during media day. The bad news is that there’s a fresh topic into which the assembled reporters will want to delve when Lewis and the Ravens gather at the Superdome for the annual exercise in journalistic hysteria.

    According to Sports Illustrated, Lewis contacted a company owned by a former male stripper to obtain a deer-antler velvet extract after tearing his triceps in October.

    Mitch Ross of S.W.A.T.S reportedly videotaped the phone call from Lewis.

    “Spray on my elbow every two hours?” Lewis asked Ross regarding the extract, via Philly.com. (Quotes from the conversation don’t appear in the free online version of the Sports Illustrated article; presumably, Philly.com gleaned the info from the full article.)

    “No,” Ross said. “Under your tongue.”

    Later, Lewis asked Ross to “just pile me up and just send me everything you got, because I got to get back on this this week.”

    The problem for Lewis is that the extract contains IGF-1, which is on the NFL’s list of banned substances. For the NFL, the problem is that Lewis will retire after Sunday. So there’s really nothing that can be done — unless Lewis admits to it on Tuesday and the league puts the investigative process into the highest gear possible.

    Even then, it’s impossible that the matter would progress through all available appeals before Sunday night.

    If there is a substance that allows athletes to heal quicker and it is banned, the NFL should be charged with withholding medical treatment.

    But it's not the healing they are worried about it's the amount of testosterone that spikes when using this stuff.

    It doesn't matter he is Ray Lewis and since he has been a great football player it doesn't matter what he does off the field, still don't understand why people like this scumbag!!!

    Don't give a **** if he used a ban substance to get his tricep healed up, so he could get back on the field to be quite honestly.

    Deer antler velvet contains IGF-1, which is known to promote muscle polyplasia (this means that when you're working out, your muscle cells multiply at a larger, abnormal rate). It makes sense that he could have taken this to regenerate his torn tricep -- there's no denying its healing properties. Also I'm sure he got a longer IGF-1 R3 -- which does the same thing as IGF-1, but has been chemically altered so that the drug's half life is 100 TIMES as long as IGF-1.

    As a fan, this is concerning. But he hasn't actually tested positive and if he did, he'd appeal and still play Sunday.

    No way he doesn't play. He was just trying to get his arm healed up as quick as possible. This doesn't bother me. I want him playing Sunday. You know he wasn't going to suddenly start using HGH type products at the very end of his career. Wouldn't make sense.
