Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Texans are heading to Mexico City to play the Oakland Raiders in week nine. And the NFL has sent out an advisory to NFL players to be careful of eating meat while in foreign countries, including Mexico.
In fact, in 2015 Duane Brown actually tested positive for clenbuterol, a banned substance, after a bye week trip to Mexico according to ESPN.com.
the drug testing program’s independent administrator sent a memo to players telling them to be wary of meat in China and Mexico because it could contain clenbuterol saying, “consuming large quantities of meat while visiting those particular countries may result in a positive test.”
“Players are warned to be aware of this issue when traveling to Mexico and China,” the memo read. “Please take caution if you decide to consume meat, and understand that you do so at your own risk.”
Arizona Cardinals defensive back Patrick Peterson took to twitter, somewhat shocked by the memo.
