DETROIT (AP) – NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says he’s hoping a human growth hormone testing program can be implemented “sooner rather than later.”

Goodell spoke with reporters after hosting a fan forum at Ford Field before Sunday’s game between the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings. The latest collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and union includes a provision to begin testing players for HGH – but it’s contingent on the union agreeing to the testing methods.

The NFL Players Association has asked for more scientific data to prove the most popular test is reliable.

Surprisingly, Goodell wasn’t asked during the fan forum about suspended Detroit star Ndamukong Suh. Goodell said afterward he thinks Suh “wants to do what’s right for the game.”
