Former NFL players accuse the league of violating federal laws regarding prescription drugs, disregarding DEA guidance on controlled substances and keeping players on the field by using the powerful painkillers and anti-inflammatories, according to sealed court documents in a federal lawsuit, The Washington Post reported in an in-depth look at the issue.
The bombshell report, based on the newspaper’s review of the sealed material, provides what the Post describes as a rare look into the league’s relationship with drugs and how team doctors manage the pain inherent in a bruising sport to keep players on the field.

Hunter Henry Womens Jersey At pro day, QB DeShone Kizer is wearing a t-shirt from the band Chicago’s tour. All other players wearing team-issued gear.
Kizer is expected to be one of the top three quarterbacks selected in the 2017 NFL draft, along with North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky and Clemson’s Deshaun Watson. The Bears could snap him up with the No. 3 overall selection, but it seems unlikely he’ll go that early. A rundown of mock drafts pegs Chicago for a defensive player or Trubisky with their first pick.
The Bears’ quarterback situation fell into disarray last fall as Jay Cutler, Brian Hoyer, and Matt Barkley all earned starts thanks to a combination of injuries and lackluster play. That entire platoon has been wiped clean from the roster in favor of former Buccaneer Mike Glennon, who joined the team this spring on a three-year deal worth up to $45 million. He and Connor Shaw are currently the only two passers on the roster.
