NFL Orders More Drug Testing

July 07, 1986|Associated Press

NEW YORK — National Football League Commissioner Pete Rozelle said today that the NFL will require more frequent urine testing, including two unscheduled tests during the regular season, for every player in the league.

Rozelle said drugs to be tested for will include cocaine, marijuana, heroin, PCP, amphetamines and alcohol. Players found to be using amphetamines will initially be handled through education and counseling, the commissioner said, adding that alcohol is not prohibited but that high levels of it and other indications of alcohol problems will lead to treatment and possible discipline.
