HGH Testing to begin in NFL next week

By Marc A. Greenberg

The NFL must have learned something from the lockout this season and in watching the NBA debacle.

The NFL and the NFLPA have reached an agreement (in record time) to conduct HGH testing as soon as next week.

Profootballtalk reported that Representatives Darrell Issa (R-Cal.) and Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) announced the agreement today, after meeting with both the NFL and NFLPA.

No word on what the penalties will be and how testing will be conducted, but this development could be huge in terms of how many players will test positive.
