When an athlete recovers quickly from a serious injury and goes on to not only compete but to do so at the highest level, we tend to ask whether performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) were part of the recovery process. I asked that question a couple of times this past NFL season (I'll explain later). I also ask the question when an aging star finds a way to have a record season.

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis recovered quickly—in less than three months—from a torn triceps. Lewis not only recovered and has been able to compete; he's been a dominant player on the field. He has returned to form. I asked myself the following question a few weeks ago: How could he recover so quickly?

We might now have the answer. ESPN is reporting that Lewis allegedly took PEDs. So that's how you recover quickly? Lewis has denied taking PEDs, but would we expect him to be honest if he has taken them?

I'll be honest, where there's smoke there's fire. The sporting world has been inundated with PED use in the past decade and a half. Top athletes have been caught. No sport has been immune to their athletes cheating by way of PEDs. Why should we believe Ray Lewis?

His recovery was hailed as remarkable. He recovered extremely quickly, and it has made for a great story. Lewis would have retired early if he had not been able to return. Instead he returned and he was an inspiration to his teammates. Now his Baltimore Ravens are in the Super Bowl. It has made for excellent television.
