Ray Lewis denies using banned substance

Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday that Lewis is believed to have used a deer antler spray product from SWATS (Sports with Alternatives to Steroids), which boasted that it contained IGF-1, which is banned by the NFL and most professional and college sports.
