    OSLO, Norway -- Speaking through her tears, cross-country skier Therese Johaug denied knowingly taking a banned performance-enhancing drug. Cheap Colorado Rockies Jerseys.Johaug, a three-time Olympic cross-country medalist from Norway, has tested positive for the steroid clostebol. The Norwegian ski federation said Thursday that the drug came from skin cream given to her by team doctor Fredrik Bendiksen.I am not guilty. I asked the doctor, and he said it was not on the doping list, Johaug said at a news conference, wiping tears away with her hands. And he said no.Bendiksen, who was also at the news conference, stepped down from his job after taking the blame for the positive test.It is my personal mistake as a medical doctor, said Bendiksen, who said he read only the ingredients that were printed on the box. It is my responsibility.Bendiksen said he had given Johaug the cream Trofodermin to treat sunburn on her lips after altitude training with the Norwegian cross-country team in Italy in late August.She has told the whole truth, Bendiksen said. I take responsibility for Therese using the balm that has the illegal drug clostebol. ... In my opinion, she is innocent.Johaug had a urine test on Sept. 16, and the Norwegian anti-doping agency informed her of the finding on Oct. 4.Torbjorn Skogstad, the head of Norways cross-country committee, said a meeting has been called to discuss any immediate measures.Norwegian ski federation secretary general Stein Opsal said it was too early to say if she would be suspended, saying they were awaiting word from Anti-Doping Norway.Anders Solheim, the head of the anti-doping agency, said the matter would be treated with the highest priority.All aspects of the matter must be disclosed in the best possible way, also facts that support the athlete, so we can present it to [the bodys] prosecution committee for review, Solheim said.Johaug, a seven-time world champion, won gold in the 4x5-kilometer relay at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. She took silver and bronze medals at the 2014 Games in Sochi. Cheap Houston Astros Jerseys .J. -- Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later. Cheap Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys . Soukalova missed only one target and completed the 15-kilometre course in 40 minutes, 32.6 seconds for both victories in this seasons individual discipline. Darya Domracheva of Belarus was second, 34. ;. LOUIS -- Heading into the final stretch of the season, the issues for the Chicago Bears banged-up defence only seem to be getting worse. Do not expect Lamar Jackson to join college footballs most exclusive club.Louisvilles sophomore quarterback will be the 10th player to return to school after winning the Heisman Trophy since Archie Griffin became the only two-time winner in 1975.Seven of those returning Heisman winners have come since 2003 and most have not even come close to repeating.Billy Sims of Oklahoma won the Heisman in 1978 and then finished second behind Charles White of Southern California in 1979. Other than that no Heisman winner has done better than third in the voting the following season.So, taking Jackson out of the equation, who will be the next Heisman winner? Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, who finished third Saturday night behind Jackson and Clemsons Deshaun Watson, probably will be the only other finalist to return to school next season. Mayfield has already said he will not enter the NFL draft.Michigans Jabrill Peppers, a junior, is waiting to make his decision on the NFL, but is likely to be a first-round pick if he leaves early. Oklahoma receiver Dede Westbrook is a senior.Among the other top-11 vote-getters, Washington sophomore quarterback Jake Browning, who came in sixth, is the only one guaranteed to be back next season to challenge Jackson.Five more players who likely will be in the 2017 Heisman race:SAQUON BARKLEY, RB PENN STATENittany Lions quarterback Trace McSorley will garner plenty of hype heading into 2017, but Barkley could be the best returning running back in the country. He played through some bumps and bruises this season and it held his carries down to 19 per game. He still rushed for 1,302 yards and scored 19 touchdowns. He is a solid receiver, too, and the likely centerpiece of an offense that could be one of the best in the nation.SHANE BUECHELE, QB, TEXASTom Herman takes over as coach, and he benefits from Charlie Strong having left behind a talented quarterback. Buechele threw foor 2,958 yards and 21 touchdowns as a freshman. Cheap Texas Rangers Jerseys. . Hermans offense helped turned Greg Ward Jr. into a star at Houston. Buechele does not have ideal mobility for some of Hermans scheme, but the coachs track record suggests he gets the most out of his quarterbacks.SAM DARNOLD, QB, SOUTHERN CALIFORNIAOnly Ohio State and Notre Dame have had more Heisman winners than USCs six so garnering attention on the West Coast should not be a problem. Darnold should enter next season as the most-hyped player in the Pac-12. As a redshirt freshman he revived a Trojans team that was on the verge of spiraling to a terrible 2015 season. Darnold became the starter in game four and passed for 2,633 yards and 26 touchdowns. He is not your typical USC drop-back passer, giving him some of that dual-threat goodness Heisman voters love.QUINTON FLOWERS, QB, SOUTH FLORIDAThe best season that nobody seemed to notice in 2016 was turned in by the Bulls junior. The only quarterback to run for more yards than Flowers 1,425 was Lamar Jackson. New USF coach Charlie Strong would be wise not to mess with Flowers and the Gulf Coast offense.JALEN HURTS, QB, ALABAMAHurts is on his way to becoming the first freshman quarterback to lead his team to the national championship since Jamelle Holieway of Oklahoma in 1985. He is already a game-changing runner (841 yards and 12 touchdowns) and solid passer (2,592 yards and 65.3 completion percentage). He wasnt the best player on the best team this season, but there is a good chance he might be in 2017 and thats a good way to win the Heisman. It would be surprising if Hurts DIDNT win a Heisman in the next two seasons.---More AP college football: and Ralph D.
