Seattle Seahawks cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner deny they have taken performance-enhancing drugs even though they are facing four-game suspensions for testing positive.
A USA Today report, based on a source close to the situation, suggested Sherman unknowingly ingested Adderall that was prescribed for a teammate.
However, Sherman sent a message to ProFootballTalk.com, saying that account is inaccurate. "It's totally false," Sherman said in his message. "It will be resolved in time and I have never taken anything."
Browner's agent, Peter Schaffer, denied Browner took an illegal substance.
"I can tell you that Brandon Browner has no knowledge of how any illegal substance could have gotten into his system," Schaffer said, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
Until their appeals are heard and resolved, both Browner and Sherman are eligible to play. Head coach Pete Carroll told reporters on Monday he expects both to be available for Sunday's game against Chicago.
