According to David Epstein and George Dohrmann of Sports Illustrated, Ray Lewis used a substance called deer-antler spray that is thought to have been used during his recovery from his torn triceps muscle. Lewis injured the Triceps in a week 6 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He didn’t play another game until the first round of the playoffs.
The article states that Mitch Ross, the owner of Sports with Alternatives to Steroids (S.W.A.T.S), allegedly assisted Ray Lewis in his recovery. This is an excerpt from the piece:
“Ross says he provided the products free of charge…All Ross wanted in return, he told Lewis, is for the future Hall of Famer to tell the truth — that he used S.W.A.T.S. products — when he returned to the field.
Ross prescribed a deluxe program, including holographic stickers on the right elbow; copious quantities of the powder additive; sleeping in front of a beam-ray light programmed with frequencies for tissue regeneration and pain relief; drinking negatively charged water; a 10-per-day regimen of the deer-antler pills that will “rebuild your brain via your small intestines” (and which Lewis said he hadn’t been taking, then swallowed four during the conversation); and spritzes of deer-antler velvet extract (the Ultimate Spray) every two hours.”
Ray Lewis was very quick to deny any involvement.
Two years ago that was the same report, I wouldn’t give that report or him any of my press. He’s not worthy of that. Next question.
It’s very unfortunate that this information was revealed during Super Bowl week, but we need to get more information before we make any assumptions. Since his injury, Lewis has taken many drug tests, and this is the first we’re hearing of him using any drugs. Let’s just see how this situation unfolds before drawing unnecessary conclusions.
