Ryan Grigson declines to discuss deflation controversy

Ryan Grigson


At a press conference Friday, Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson declined to say whether he had been interviewed by the NFL regarding allegations of under-inflated footballs in Sunday’s AFC title game at New England.

“I can’t speak on it. Sorry, guys,” Grigson said.

Grigson also declined to say whether the Colts had informed the NFL of inflation concerns about New England’s footballs in the first half of Sunday’s 45-7 loss.

“Everything’s going to I’m sure come out in the investigation, guys, and like I said, it’s not appropriate for me to talk about it. I can’t do that. It’s in the league’s hands,” Grigson said.

Grigson’s remarks were made before the NFL issued a statement providing an update on its investigation. In the statement, the league said it had conducted “nearly 40 interviews” about the alleged under-inflation.
