The Denver Broncos have released a statement in response to the documentary that alleges Peyton Manning took human growth hormone (HGH) in 2011, a banned substance according to the NFL, as he recovered from neck surgery.

"Knowing Peyton Manning and everything he stands for, the Denver Broncos support him 100 percent. These are false claims made to Al Jazeera, and we don't believe the report," the Broncos begin.

"Peyton is rightfully outraged by the allegations, which he emphatically denied to our organization and which have been publicly renounced by the source who initially provided them.

"Our organization is confident Peyton does things the right way, and we do not find this story to be credible."

"Throughout his NFL career, particularly during his four seasons with the Broncos, Peyton has shown nothing but respect for the game. Our organization is confident Peyton does things the right way, and we do not find this story to be credible."

Manning has called the report "complete garbage" and appeared on ESPN NFL Countdown Sunday to directly address the claims (we'll have more from that soon). If you care to watch the Al Jazeera documentary, you can do so here.

We'll continually update our story stream as we provide complete coverage of these allegations.
