Media day is usually notable for dumb questions and sad attempts at wacky gimmicks from bored reporters, but Tuesday some actual headlines were generated in and out of football. Ray Lewis denied a Sports Illustrated report that he had recently used performance-enhancing drugs to recover from an injury, while Alex Rodriguez's name appeared on a Miami clinic's list of players to whom it had supposedly delivered banned substances. Lewis is getting ready to play in the Super Bowl, while Rodriguez is rehabbing from an injury, but it's certain that these allegations have their attention -- as well as ours.


A sideshow for Lewis?

Ray Lewis' focus has never been called into question, but when you're trying to get ready for the Super Bowl, allegations of PED use probably don't help your concentration.
