Peyton Manning is off the hook with regards to those HGH allegations — at least, as far the the NFL is concerned.
Following a seven-month internal investigation, the league found “no credible evidence that Peyton Manning was provided with or used HGH or other substances prohibited by the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances,” it said Monday.
“The Mannings were fully cooperative with the investigation and provided both interviews and access to all records sought by the investigators,” the NFL added.
The investigation began in January, and was led by the NFL’s security and legal teams with support from expert consultants. It came about following allegations made in an Al-Jazeera America documentary.
The process involved witness interviews, a review of relevant records and other materials, online research, and laboratory analysis and review.
Separately, the NFL’s investigation continues into the documentary’s allegations made against other NFL players, which involve different lines of inquiry and witnesses, the league wrote.
