NFL clears Peyton Manning in HGH investigation
The NFL has cleared Peyton Manning of wrongdoing after a seven month investigation into allegations that he used HGH.
In a statement released by the league on Monday, the NFL said that it found “no credible evidence” that Manning was given or used HGH or any other banned substance.

Both Manning and his wife were fully cooperative with the investigation, the league said.
It’s the end of a seven month saga that started with Al Jazeera America accusing the quarterback of receiving HGH when recovering from neck surgery. Manning maintained his innocence from the start, and the league’s investigation has failed to find anything that would cast that into doubt.
The league clarified that their investigation into other accused players is continuing. There is no word on when that will be concluded.
