NFL Notes: Peyton Manning, Broncos, Eagles, Packers, & Saints


Peyton Manning

Peyton Manning said that he’s “angry, furious, disgusted” by the report that he took HGH several years ago.

Angry, furious, disgusted is really how I feel,” Manning told Lisa Salters on ESPN. “Sickened by it. I’m not sure I understand how someone can make something up about somebody, admit that he made it up, and yet somehow it’s published in a story. I don’t understand that.”

It’s completely fabricated, complete trash, garbage,” Manning added.

Manning particularly took exception to the inclusion of his wife and her medical history.

“It makes me sick that it brings Ashley into it, her medical history being violated,” Manning said. “Any medical treatment that my wife received, that’s her business.
