Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison said the league wouldn’t allow him to record his most recent drug test.

Harrison, who was tested earlier this month by the league after announcing his return for a 14th NFL season, recorded much of the test and posted it to Instagram. When he was met by a different NFL official on Tuesday for another test, he was prevented from recording it.

“I was told that I can’t record it and if I did try to record it, they wouldn’t test me,” Harrison said in one of the multiple videos he posted on Instagram regarding the incident. “And if they wouldn’t test me they would count (the test) as positive.”
