NEW YORK: Three National Football League players named in an Al Jazeera television investigation into performance enhancing drugs were cleared Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) after the league found “no credible evidence” of their involvement in doping. The NFL said in a statement it had closed the case against Pittsburgh’s James Harrison and Green Bay duo Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers after an eight-month investigation. “The NFL found no credible evidence that Pittsburgh’s James Harrison and Green Bay’s Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers were provided with or used substances prohibited under the NFL-NFLPA Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances following a comprehensive investigation into allegations made in a documentary by Al Jazeera America,” the league said.
