NFL trio cleared of drugs link following television documentary claims

NFL players James Harrison, Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers have been cleared of any link to performance-enhancing drugs following claims made in a television documentary last year.

The NFL said it had found “no credible evidence” the players were provided with or used prohibited substances.

The allegations of doping were made by Al-Jazeera America in December.

Pittsburgh linebacker Harrison and Green Bay linebackers Matthews and Peppers met investigators last week.

Al-Jazeera had also reported that free agent Mike Neal and quarterback Peyton Manning were supplied with performance-enhancing drugs.

The NFL cleared Super Bowl winner Manning of wrongdoing in July but has yet to announce details of its investigation into Neal.
