    The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) is investigating Nate Diazs open use of a vape pen shortly after his riveting five-round fight against Conor McGregor at UFC 202. Mike Wallace Jersey .I can confirm that USADA is aware of the situation and is currently gathering information in order to determine the appropriate next steps, said USADA spokesperson Ryan Madden.During Saturdays postfight press conference, Diaz, who suffered a majority decision loss to McGregor at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, openly vaped while answering media questions.When asked what substance the pen contained, Diaz, 31, said it was CBD oil -- otherwise known as cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is considered a banned substance in-competition, under the classification of cannabinoids.CBD oil, Diaz said when asked about the vape. It helps with the healing process and inflammation, stuff like that. You want to get these before and after a fight, training. Itll make your life a better place.The in-competition window extends to six hours after a UFC fight. Diaz submitted a fight-night drug test prior to the news conference, the results of which were not yet available. The threshold for marijuana metabolites under the UFC program, as well as statutes of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, is 150 nanograms per milliliter (ng/mL).The USADA could argue Diazs admission of using CBD oil within a six-hour time frame is a violation of the UFCs anti-doping policy. If the USADA were to rule a violation has occurred, Diaz could face up to a one-year suspension.Diazs representatives were not immediately available for comment.Diaz (19-11) has never failed a drug test. His older brother, UFC welterweight Nick Diaz, recently completed an 18-month suspension for his third marijuana-related offense. Nate Diaz, who fights out of Stockton, California, already has called for a trilogy fight against McGregor. Tavon Young Jersey . If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency. Brandon Carr Jersey . -- Jacksonville wide receiver Cecil Shorts will likely be a game-time decision whether hell play Sunday in the Jaguars home game against the San Diego Chargers. . Supported by three-run homers from Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos, the young right-hander went seven strong innings in the Washington Nationals 8-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Denver Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said quarterback Trevor Siemian took a big step forward in Thursdays practice as Siemian tries to work through a left (nonthrowing) shoulder injury.Siemian, who was held out of Wednesdays practice, threw in Thursdays practice as he took part in seven-on-seven work as well as individual drills. Siemian, who left the Broncos win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers just before halftime, has said he expects to start Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.Well see how sore he is, see how hes feeling as we move to [Friday], Kubiak said. I think we took a big step forward. Well see how we comes out of [practice], see how he feels tomorrow, that will have a lot to do with it.Siemian left Sundays 27-7 victory over the Buccaneers late in the second quarter with the injury. Siemian has received treatment each day this week and will be evaluated by the Broncos medical staff once again Friday morning.Though the Broncos held Siemian out of Wednesdays practice, he did take part in the teams walk-through portions of the on-field work. Rookie Paxton Lynch has done most of the work with the starting offense in practice thus far this week, and Lynch would get the start against the Falcons if Siemian cannot play.But Kubiak said Siemian continues too improve and showed that on the practice field Thursday. Kamalei Correa Jersey. .Trevor threw the ball fine, but the rotation is something you have you get used to, Kubiak said. Its kind of working through a hip pointer, thats how its been described to me. ... It doesnt feel very good, something youve got to work through the soreness. But I think he took a good step.Kubiak said again Thursday he believes Siemian, because of the 24-year-olds knowledge of the playbook, could be limited in practice for the remainder of the week and still play on Sunday against the Falcons if physically able. Kubiak has said, I trust Trevor.Siemian suffered the injury when he was sacked by Buccaneers defensive tackle Clinton McDonald just before halftime. To make the tackle McDonald swung Siemian around and tossed him down directly on the left shoulder.Siemian had his first career 300-yard passing game in a Week 3 win over the Cincinnati Bengals and was 5-of-7 passing for 68 yards and a touchdown at the time of his injury Sunday.For the season the Broncos have won all four of Siemians starts and he has thrown for 824 yards to go with six touchdowns and three interceptions.
