NFL notes: Colts’ Jim Irsay talks about battle with addiction

Colts owner Jim Irsay didn’t shed much light on the specifics of his current status with the NFL in his first interview since his arrest this spring, but he say he’s undergoing random drug tests, and the results of those tests are being shared with commissioner Roger Goodell.

Irsay talked to Indianapolis Star columnist Bob Kravitz, and though he wouldn’t say specifically why he failed a field sobriety test or whether he thought he should be held to a higher standard than players, he did describe his ongoing battle with addiction that stems from the pain of back and hip problems.
