Drug tests for the 13 hospitalized Iowa football players have reportedly come back clean. The players haven't yet been released, but there's one of many possible causes for the widespread collapse off the board:
The tests were issued at the behest of doctors at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics to help determine causes of the muscle and kidney ailment that brought the players to the hospital. Cocaine and other amphetamines are known to exacerbate cases of rhabdomyolysis, the condition that likely befell the players after intense offseason workouts in the last week.
The test results do not rule out the possibility that over-the-counter supplements might have played a role in the players’ poor health.
