Panthers | Accused doctor told players how to beat tests

Fri, 02 Dec 2005 11:39:24 -0800

The Associated Press reports Dr. James Shortt, who is accused of writing illegal steroid prescriptions for three former Carolina Panthers, advised the players how to take the drugs without failing league tests. A judge heard tape-recorded conversations Thursday, Dec. 2, between the doctor and former Panthers and current Denver Broncos P Todd Sauerbrun, former Panthers TE Wesley Walls, and Panthers C Jeff Mitchell in which he told them how to avoid detection.

NFL | Former TE Walls, Three Others Now Identified With Steroids

Fri, 12 Aug 2005 22:22:33 -0700

Charles Chandler, of the Charlotte Observer, reports former Carolina Panthers Pro Bowl TE Wesley Walls was a patient of the South Carolina doctor at the center of a federal steroids investigation, according to an HBO report Friday Aug. 12. The "Costas Now" program did not say whether Walls obtained NFL-banned steroids or related substances from Dr. James Shortt. However, Shortt told interviewer Armen Keteyian that he provided anabolic steroids to about half of the one-to-two dozen NFL players he treated and that he injected human growth hormone (HGH) into most of them. Steroids and HGH are not allowed by the NFL or major pro sports. HGH is difficult to detect because scientists have yet to develop a reliable urine or blood test. Walls, who is retired, did not return telephone messages left Friday by the Observer and declined comment to HBO. He becomes the seventh Panther to be identified as a patient of Shortt. HBO also named ex-Panthers DE John Milem and two players from other teams - ex- New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins OG Dave Fiore and former Atlanta Falcons DE Henry Taylor - as patients of Shortt. Milem, the only player interviewed on the program, said he received HGH and supplements from Shortt. Taylor was quoted as saying he got HGH from Shortt but, in retrospect, said he exhibited poor judgment. Fiore's agent, Arthur Weiss, was quoted as saying Fiore saw Shortt twice to receive medical treatment for joint injuries, but that he never received a banned substance. CBS reported in March that C Jeff Mitchell, P Todd Sauerbrun and OT Todd Steussie filled prescriptions written by Shortt for NFL-banned steroids. Only Mitchell remains with the Panthers. Sauerbrun was traded to the Denver Broncos in May. Steussie plays for Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
