Former Tech running back cleared for prescription drug use

Former Georgia Tech running back Jonathan Dwyer has been cleared to take a prescription medication that will result in failing a drug test, his agent told the AJC.

The agent, Adisa Bakari, said on Sunday that Dwyer was cleared to take the prescription medication to treat a lifelong condition.

Bakari would not disclose the condition but said the NFL was aware of it.

Fox News reported on its website that Dwyer tested positive for amphetamines in February, but did not disclose a source for the information.

The news outlet also reported that the positive test was triggered by a prescription medication that Dwyer had NFL clearance to use.

Said the agent, Bakari: "It's a non-issue."
