Hello, Roger.

On Monday night, the league released a letter threatening suspensions for four players listed in the report for detrimental conduct if they didn't schedule an interview by Aug. 25.

Harrison maintains he has never used PEDs and is interviewing because he wants to play this year, not to make the league happy.
