I remember not too long ago an ACL injury would sideline a player for a season or longer, then it took close to another full season for them to get back to "100%".
Now all of a sudden guys are coming back from ACLs inside of 12 months.
I am not going to name names because I obviously don't know who is taking it or not. But because the NFL does not currently test for HGH it would be naive to think players are not using HGH for injury recovery purposes.
Is it a banned substance in the NFL? The answer is Yes.
Why do they not test for it? Apparently the Players Association doesn't want "evasive" testing (blood tests)
Should it be banned or is it actually good for players? I don't know this answer, is there a doctor in the house? Because it's banned i would lean toward it probably not good for you over time, but i don't know, and the short term benefits are apparently significant enough that players are using it.
Lots I don't really know or understand about HGH, but shouldn't this be talked about more? According to Dr. James Andrews suddenly there has apparently developed, just in the last few years, a class of "superhumans" that that can recover from ACLs in less than 12 months. Anyone buying that line?
