Roger Goodell pushes HGH testing

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- NFL commissioner Roger Goodell continues to stay on the case of the NFLPA with testing for human growth hormone.

Goodell, speaking at a new conference before Sunday's game between the Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles, said he's displeased that the league and union have yet to reach an agreement on HGH testing.

"I know where we are. We want to implement this as soon as possible and get it in place," Goodell said. "We're disappointed we don't have it with the start of the regular season. But we still want to get it done."

This was a big point of contention during the latest collective bargaining agreement. The NFL and NFLPA could not reach a middle ground on HGH testing before ending the lockout this summer. Now, Congress is getting involved, which puts heat on Goodell and the league.

Goodell also said he's hopeful the Bills will continue to have a strong future in western New York. A big key, according to Goodell, will be updating or replacing Ralph Wilson Stadium. The stadium has been the home of the Bills since 1973.
