ASHBURN, Va., May 26 (UPI) -- Washington Redskins receiver Santana Moss remained mum Wednesday on reports he had received treatments by a doctor charged with distributing banned substances.

In his first availability to reporters since his name was linked to that of Anthony Galea, Moss referred all questions on the subject to Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan, The Washington Post reported.

"I already know you all gonna ask me or have a bunch of questions about the allegations last week," Moss told the Post. "Right now where I stand, me and Coach Shanahan went over everything and where we're at. We're very clear on our decision. So if you have any questions about them, you have to ask him about it."

Federal prosecutors said last week they don't plan to file charges against athletes who had dealings with Galea right now, including Moss.

Galea has been charged with smuggling and distributing human growth hormone.

"(We) went through a bunch of situations that have happened to him, and I feel really good about where he's at," Shanahan told the newspaper. "And real good that -- I don't know if vindicated is the word, but I think when you find out all the facts, I think he'll be OK."
