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.
