INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (December 27, 2015) — The Indianapolis Colts have released a statement regarding Al Jazeera’s allegations of Peyton Manning’s use of human growth hormone:

We’ve been made aware of the recent Al Jazeera report concerning Peyton Manning and find it utterly ridiculous. We are thoroughly familiar with Peyton’s tireless work habits, his medical history, and, most importantly, his integrity. Peyton played the game in Indianapolis for 14 years the right way. He never took any shortcuts and it would be absurd to suggest he would have taken prohibited performance enhancing drugs. We also note that the “source” of this allegation has since recanted his story. The entire Indianapolis Colts organization and the Irsay family hope this crude effort to besmirch Peyton’s reputation will not be permitted to tarnish the legacy of a great Colt.

Avis Roper

Senior Director of Communications

Manning  has denied the allegations. Other media outlets have also reported that Al Jazeera’s source has recanted his story.
