A San Francisco 49ers physician was questioned on Sunday night following the 49ers 16-10 win over the New York Giants.
But rather than be worried about the possible negative publicity, 49ers Director of Communications, Bob Lange, has claimed that the federal drug agents were just conducting random checks.
"They are random checks to team physicians as they travel to see if anybody is transferring controlled substances across state lines. That is all the information we have," explained Bob Lange.

Reporter Question: Do you guys carry controlled substances across state lines?
" No, we have medicine that is used for our players. Any sports team that travels throughout the country, the doctors take that with them."
Reporter's Question: Everything is registered here in the state of New Jersey?
"I couldn't tell you that. I'm a PR (public relations) guy, I'm not a doctor, I wouldn't be able to tell you that."
Sticking with the NFL, New England Patriots picked up a huge win on the road on Sunday night after they defeated the Colts 42-20 in Indianapolis.
