(CBS) One day after Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall said he’s heard of players using Viagra as a performance enhancing drug, teammate Lance Briggs chimed in with a little humor on the subject.

“I heard about that. I guess, boners. There’s gonna be a lot of dangerous boners on the field,” the Bears linebacker said. “I don’t know. I usually do the tackling. I just do the tackling, but apparently maybe some offensive guys, they’re getting poked around.”

Yes, Briggs went there.

The whole thing started Wednesday when Marshall was asked about the growing use of Adderall in the NFL.

“I don’t know too much about Adderall,” Marshall said. “I know guys, it is such a competitive league, guys try anything just to get that edge. I’m fortunate enough to be blessed with size and some smarts to give me my edge. But some guys, they’ll do whatever they can to get an edge. I’ve heard of some crazy stories. I’ve heard (of) guys using like Viagra, seriously. Because the blood is supposedly thin, some crazy stuff. So, you know, it’s kind of scary with some of these chemicals that are in some of these things so you have to be careful.”
