Broncos backup quarterback Chris Simms and former Broncos receiver Javon Walker are among the hundreds of professional athletes who have been treated by a Canadian doctor who is under criminal investigation after his medicine bag containing the human growth hormone and Actovegin was confiscated at the United States border in September.

According to a New York Times story, Dr. Anthony Galea, who also had treated the likes of golfer Tiger Woods and Olympic swimmer Dana Torres, is under investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for smuggling, advertising and selling unapproved drugs into the United States.

HGH is considered a banned, performance-enhancing substance by the NFL, although it doesn't test for it. Dr. Galea has said the HGH was for his own personal use. He also said he never prescribed Actovegin, a drug extracted from calf's blood, to Woods or any other U.S. athletes.

Simms name is linked ??? But there is no way in hell he ever used. Put in his highlight reel from this season and the case will be thrown out of any court.

No one will ever believe Simms is on enhanced drugs after watching him on tape.

It is doubtful Simms will even be on an NFL roster come next year and it has nothing to do with this story either.
