Peyton Manning May Sue Over HGH Report
He says it’s “garbage,” but can he get rid of it? The Denver Broncos quarterback could sue Al Jazeera over its apparently discredited report claiming that Manning and other professional athletes used growth hormone now banned by the NFL. Manning, 39, who’s been rehabbing from injuries since mid-November, said he’ll “probably” file suit against the network, whose main source in the story, Charlie Sly, has recanted his secretly recorded doping claim. If Manning does sue, as a public figure, he’ll have to clear a high bar of evidence to prove defamation of character.
