    The doctor who pleaded guilty to conspiring to illegally prescribe steroids to several Carolina Panthers was sentenced Monday to one year and one day in prison.
    Dr. James Shortt pleaded guilty in March to one federal count of conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids and human growth hormone. Prosecutors have said current and former members of the Panthers were some of Shortt's patients.

    What about the players? Someone had to be on the other side of the needle or cream or whatever.

    Houston, again.
    I suspect that is the next chapter. Denver's kicker seems to be one of them on the hot seat.
