DEA investigates NFL drug abuse allegations

Updated: Wednesday, July 16 2014, 05:54 AM CDT
Federal Drug Enforcement agents are launching an investigation into claims that trainers and doctors were illegally giving NFL players powerful painkillers to keep them on the field.

The DEA is reportedly examining records of doctor visits and prescriptions given to players.

The investigation is described as being in its "early stages."

It comes a year after a group of retired NFL players filed a class action lawsuit accusing the league of creating a "culture of drug misuse" by handing out pills without prescriptions.
