CHARLOTTE Stitched Greg Van Roten Jersey , N.C. (AP) — say outspoken Eric Reid was not singled out with excessive drug tests.The joint statement released Wednesday said an independent administrator found Reid received the “normal” number of drug tests this season. The statement said, “there is no evidence of targeting or any other impropriety with respect to his selection for testing.”Reid has said he believes he was repeatedly tested because of his pending lawsuit against the league.The Carolina Panthers safety said in December he had been tested seven times by the NFL. Reid said the league was targeting him because of the ongoing collusion case against the NFL in which he alleged team owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his decision to kneel alongside former 49ers teammate Colin Kaepernick during the national anthem to protest racial and social injustice.However, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Reid was not tested as many times as Reid said he was. The person did not say the exact number of times Reid was tested. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of confidentiality of the case.“We take any claim questioning the integrity of our collectively bargained performance enhancing drug policy seriously,” the joint statement from the NFL and the Players Association read.The statement said an independent administrator was asked to review the policy and produce a report on Reid’s claims of targeting. A copy of this report, which contains personal and confidential testing information Youth Eric Reid Jersey , was recently provided to Reid.“We will not breach any player’s confidentiality, but can confirm that the report documents the dates he was randomly selected for testing and the actual dates of the drug tests,” the statement said. “The report also demonstrates that Mr. Reid’s tests were randomly generated via computer algorithm and that his selection for testing was normal when compared with the number of tests players were randomly selected for throughout the league during the time that he was on an active roster.”Reid was not immediately available for comment.He joined the Panthers on Sept. 27 as a free agent.Because of when he joined the league he was immediately subject to two drugs tests — one for performance enhancing drugs and another for substance abuse, per league policy.However, Reid claimed he was tested an additional six times over the next 11 weeks Stitched Eric Reid Jersey , which would be high above the league norm. Most players say they are subject to testing about two or three times per year over the course of a 17-week regular season.While Reid said in December “I’m not surprised” by the number of the drug tests, his coaches and teammates began to grow a little skeptical of the amount of tests.Panthers coach Ron Rivera quipped at his news conference in December that “if my name came up that many times I would buy a lottery ticket.”And Panthers wide receiver Torrey Smith said the tests were “very excessive.”Reid continued to protest with the Panthers by kneeling during the national anthem this season.Reid was also fined four times by the NFL this season for illegal hits, costing him more than $50,000. He appealed all of the hits and one of them was overturned. The Panthers practiced without several key players for the second straight day as they prepare for Sunday’s season finale against the Saints."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Keep Sounding PodcastPanthers 2019 NFL DraftCSR Film RoomPanthers at Saints Thursday injury report: Kawann Short, Trai Turner and Marshall Newhouse miss practice againNew Youth Matt Paradis Jersey ,7commentsThe Panthers practiced without several key players for the second straight day as they prepare for Sunday’s season finale against the Saints.ByBradley Smith@bdubsmittyDec 27, 2018,2:45pm ESTShareTweetShareSharePanthers at Saints Thursday injury report: Kawann Short, Trai Turner and Marshall Newhouse miss practice againThe Panthers were back on the field preparing for their season finale against the Saints today, and they still have a few players to be concerned about on today’s injury report. Just like yesterday Stitched Matt Paradis Jersey , defensive tackle Kawann Short missed practice with a sore ankle, guard Trai Turner was absent due to an ankle injury, and left tackle Marshall Newhouse was out with a hip issue. Running back Kenjon Barner (knee) and defensive end Bryan Cox Jr. (non-injury) were added to the list of players who didn’t practice. Everyone who got the day off for rest yesterday participated in full today. Other than that, everything is pretty much the same as it was yesterday.While Ron Rivera won’t go into detail about which players, there’s a chance we see some starters rested to give younger guys a chance to prove what they can do.I’m not much for predictions Youth Shaq Thompson Jersey , but I’d venture to guess that this means we won’t see much from Luke Kuechly or Christian McCaffrey on Sunday.Here’s today’s full injury report:Panthers injury reportDid not participate in practiceRB Kenjon Barner (knee)DE Bryan Cox Jr. (non-injury)OT Marshall Newhouse (hip)QB Cam Newton (shoulder)DT Kawann Short (calf)G Trai Turner (ankle)Limited participation in practiceN/AFull participation in practiceS Mike Adams (rest)LB Thomas Davis (rest)C Ryan Kalil (rest)RB Christian McCaffrey (rest)DE Julius Peppers (rest)Practice StatusDid not participate in practice = 0% of a player’s normal repetitionsLimited participation in practice = Less than 100% of a player’s normal repetitionsFull participation in practice = 100% of a player’s normal repetitionsGame StatusOut = Player will not playDoubtful = Player unlikely to playQuestionable = Uncertain if player will play
