NFL Announces New HGH Testing Protocols

With the technology now in place the NFL will likely begin testing players, year-round, for performance enhancing drugs. These tests will be done on game day in as noninvasive manner as possible and all players will be constantly eligible for testing. That is to say that during the pre-season, game season as well as during the off-season, random HGH tests (via a blood test) will be administered.

The testing will fit in with the current steroid policy. If all of the discussions go well and agreements are met the new policy will go into affect on September 8th. This policy is a part of the new collective bargaining agreement between players and owners and is designed to maintain the standards of competition in the sport and in the league.
