San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman revealed on Twitter that he was tested for performance-enhancing drugs and human-growth hormones after his team’s 27-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday in the NFC Divisional Round.
Sherman picked off a Kirk Cousins pass early in the third quarter to set up a Tevin Coleman touchdown that helped give the 49ers a 24-10 lead following the extra point.
He and the 49ers defense were exceptional in holding Minnesota to 147 yards of offense.
Sherman has been in the news because of drug tests in the past, as he won an appeal of a four-game suspension for testing positive for Adderall in 2012. Marc Weinrich of Sports Illustrated provided more information.
