Ray Lewis ‘Agitated’ About Banned-Substance Accusation

[Sporting News]

NEW ORLEANS — Ray Lewis continued to deny the validity of a Sports Illustrated story accusing him of attempting to purchase a banned substance.

At his Super Bowl XLVII news conference Wednesday, Lewis’ denial was even more forceful than it had been on Tuesday. The story linked Lewis to deer antler spray to aid his recovery from a torn triceps. Lewis said he was “agitated” about the report and blamed the story on “cowards.”

“I think this is probably one of the most embarrassing things that we can do, on this type of stage,” Lewis said. “When you let cowards come in and do things like that, to try to stir something. It’s just sad that someone can have this much attention on a stage this big. I don’t need it, my teammates don’t need it, the 49ers don’t need it, nobody needs it. It’s very foolish.”

Lewis insisted the accusation would not distract the Ravens from their preparations for the Super Bowl.
