Roger Clemens Perjury Trial Update: Team Doc Says Pitcher Never Showed Signs Of Steroid Use

Dr. David Lintner testified today that Roger Clemens never showed any signs of using HGH (human growth hormones) or anabolic steroid use during his tenure with the Houston Astros.

Clemens is on trial and being accused of lying to Congress in 2008 when he denied during a House Committe on Oversight and Government Reform that he had ever used HGH or steroids.

The Houston Chronicle has more or Dr. Lintner's testimony:

"Did you ever see anythink in your observation of him that would give you any indication that he was using either HGH (Human Growth Hormone) or some type of steroid?" Clemens' lead defense attorney, Rusty Hardin, asked the Houston-based orthopedic surgeon Dr. David Lintner. "No," Lintner answered.

According to Michael McCann of Sprts Illustrated, if Clemens is convicted on all six charges he could receive anywhere from 15 to 21 months in federal prison.
