NFL | JaMarcus Russell admits positive test

Free-agent QB JaMarcus Russell (Raiders) admitted that he tested positive for codeine after the Oakland Raiders selected him with the No. 1 overall pick in 2007, according to "I missed all of training camp, so I didn't get tested when all the other guys got tested," Russell said. "I had a prescription from a doctor, but it wasn't the team doctor." However, he is denying that he ever had a drug problem and has not used codeine in three years.
