Eagles Tested for AIDS Virus

From Washington Post

The Philadelphia Eagles have tested all of their players and some members of their front office for the AIDS virus, according to one member of the NFL team’s medical staff. However, the doctor apparently performed the tests without knowledge of team owner Norman Braman.

Vincent J. Distefano, the Eagles’ team physician, said the tests were given at the beginning of training camp and were part of what he called “routine physicals.”

Distefano said there was no specific reason for the tests, and stressed that none of the players or front office personnel has tested positive.
