Description

An exclusive ABC News investigation in a partnership with ESPN discovered that tucked away in college training rooms, underneath the stadium, is a closely-held secret of team doctors using powerful prescription painkillers to get student athletes on the field, despite painful injuries, regardless of the price to their health. Painkiller shots given in college sports locker rooms, often called “The Magic Shot” by players, have long been rumored but kept hush-hush in the sporting world. The collaboration between the ABC News Brian Ross Investigative Team and ESPN's “Outside the Lines” was a groundbreaking effort by major news organizations to document and expose the dangerous practice.
