Garrett Reid, a son of the coach Andy Reid, was found unconscious at his dormitory room. Although Omar Elkhamra, the team doctor of the Philadelphia Eagles, tried to revive him, the efforts of the doctor turned out to be in vain. The county coroner claimed that this young person (29 years old) died of a heroin overdose.
The death of Garrett Reid was a serious tragedy for the family of the coach. Furthermore, the case caused several problems for the Philadelphia Eagles. The football players had to clear themselves from suspicions connected with usage of steroids. Several anabolic steroids were found by police officers in the dormitory of Garret Reid. Moreover, syringes and needles were found in his possession too. The steroids were identified by police. It was reported that Garrett Reid possessed Nandrolone Phenylpropionate, Boldenone Undecylenate, Testosterone Propionate and Trenbolone Acetate. Since these medicines were found at Garrett Reid’s dormitory room, several suspicions arose. It was noted that the coach’s son probably provided these forbidden preparations to members of the Philadelphia Eagles. So, the death of Garrett Reid turned out to be a trouble for the total sport organization.
Some of steroids revealed at Garrett Reid’ dormitory room are fast-acting. These medicines are commonly liked by athletes that submit to drug testing. Since they are eliminated from the body in short period of time after application, it is more difficult to catch those who have taken these medicines. Thus, it is suspected that such medications must have been taken by players of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Although suspicions are pronounced, it has not been proven that Philadelphia Eagles dope. It was not revealed yet whether steroids were found in the system of Garrett Reid.
The NFL spokesman assured that he would report when it will be clear whether steroids found in Garrett Reid’s room were linked to Philadelphia Eagles.
