Last week the story broke that Redskins WR Santana Moss was a patient of Dr. Anthony Galea. Galea was arrested last week on charges of supplied illegal doses of HGH to American and Canadian athletes. Today at Redskins Park, the team was made available to the media. Philip Daniels, defensive end, had this to say in regards to the situation (via @AP):
Moss told a small group of players last week that he was treated by Dr. Anthony Galea. Daniels indicated that Moss portrayed the treatments as routine and did not involved any banned substances.Daniels says he believes Moss is “telling us the truth.”
Moss referred questions on the matter to coach Mike Shanahan after Wednesday’s off-season practice. Shanahan says he has spoken with Moss and is confident the veteran wideout will not be suspended.
#Redskins Phil Daniels:”He got like 3 treatments. Who knows what happened out there w/what he was putting in those.” on Moss/Dr. Galea
#Redskins Phil Daniels:”I really don’t think he (Moss) needed a Doctor or injections to get back. Sometimes you put your trust in people..”
#Redskins Phil Daniels: “We support him. It hasn’t taken our focus away. Everybody knows Santana, & that he’s a good guy.”
