MIAMI — Authorities have yet to release blood tests for Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth, who authorities say fatally struck a pedestrian in Miami Beach a week ago.

Meanwhile, his attorney is denying media reports that the tests show Stallworth was driving drunk.

Christopher Lyons said Saturday that neither police nor the state attorney’s office have released the results of toxicology tests.

Neither group of authorities have said specifically when the results will be released.

The Miami Herald and local TV news, citing unnamed people, have reported that Stallworth’s blood-alcohol level was above Florida’s legal limit.

A Miami Beach police spokesman didn’t return an e-mail or phone message from The Associated Press on Saturday.

Stallworth hasn’t been charged.
