Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis may have used a banned substance to recover from his torn triceps in order to come back and play this season.
According to a report in Sports Illustrated, Lewis contacted a company to obtain a "a deer-antler velvet extract after tearing his triceps in October."

Another of ESPN’s over-blown story lines goes bust. It’s been a lousy couple of moths for their soap-opera/sports coverage.
Never mind the fact he was involved in an incident where someone was murdered. Never mind the fact he has six children with four different women. Lewis is a scumbag.
Being a 49er fan for 47 years, I didn't need that the Ravens have this thug on their team to inspire me to root for SF. However, if he ends up injured, that will be frosting on the cake if SF wins the game. If he ends up injured, and SF loses, that will be a consolation.
Deer Antler powder or extract is a very common Chinese herbal medicine category, which has been around for about 5000 years.
I know Ray Lewis has not lead an exemplary life, but are people really going to go after for something as petty as “dear antler?”
which media guy will have the gonads to ask him if this is true? probably none of them.
Why is it banned?
Every sports reporter that has ever interviewed Ray Lewis, can describe a torn tricep, or knows what an antelope look like is now putting on his make up and tie and preparing for four days of frenzied, manic, non stop blathering.
There will be commentaries about the round tables discussing the coverage of the reporting of the story.
Deer antler extract? Does it make you horny?
If he used a BANNED substance, YES!
:: Does it make you horny? ::
You tell me, thailor!
Fans wearing deer antlers? Perhaps for away games. Not home games.
Pollard is the real headbutting THUG!
I can't. The price is too deer. It costs a lot of bucks. But, strangely, not a lot of doe.
"...deer juice...hmmmm...maybe we'll get lucky and he'll wander in front of a bus. Lots of people see through his lies (me included) and can't stand his self serving clown act before the game....most of the interviews he gives, he always contradicts himself"
Lots of banned substances have been used for thousands of years and can be otained from natural sources. That doesn't make them any less of a rules violation. Bodybuilders have used deer antler extract for years to heal minor injuries and increase recovery time so they can work out more often without overtraining. Banned is banned and Ray knows that.
He’s a clown and a fool and worshipped here in Baltimore.
I hope he’s responsible for the 49’ers winning touchdown
Hes a clown and a fool and worshipped here in Baltimore.
There are a lot of fans, I think, who can’t stand him for his attention-getting antics. I live in Maryland, but I am not much of a pro sports fan, but I hope the Ravens win for the sake of people I know who care, but I also hope that Lewis gets no credit for the win and finally shuts up.
Deer antlers extract contains high levels of Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1)
IGF-1 is an anabolic growth factor that stimulates cell growth and cell repair. It could likewise improve the building of lean muscle mass while eliminating fats.
MLB trying to curtail use of deer antler spray as steroid alternative
Baseball sent a warning to its major and minor league players last week that may sound odd, if not comical, but is a sign of these drug-testing times: stop ingesting deer antler spray.
Until the warning went out, baseball players, taking their cues from the body-building and NFL cultures, felt safe using a deer antler spray as an alternative to steroids with almost no risk of flunking a drug test.
Deer antlers? Yes, chemists have figured out that the velvet from immature deer antlers includes insulin-like growth factor, or IGF-1, which mediates the level of human growth hormone in the body, and is also banned by MLB and the World Anti-Doping Agency, among others, for its muscle-building and fat-cutting effects.
Murder is illegal. I don't think Lewis gives a flying fig about a rules violation.
So can he play on Sunday?
Oh, let’s stop this charade. You and I both have deer fuzzy antlers, shins, hooves all over the yard that our dogs borrow
back and forth from each other.
Whaddya suppose deer antler fur steeped in 90o a week or so might do?
