After reporting earlier this month than NFL draft prospect B.J. Raji failed a drug test at the NFL combine in February, SI.com retracted its story Tuesday night.

The Packers select B.J. Raji with the No. 9 pick in the 2009 Draft.

Raji played at Boston College and is among the top-rated defensive tackles heading into the draft Saturday. He and his agents disputed SI.com's initial report.

SI.com reported that NFL scouts had been told that Raji also tested positive for marijuana during his time at BC.

A statement released Tuesday by the Web site said "an SI.com report posted earlier this month incorrectly stated that Boston College defensive tackle B.J. Raji's name would appear on the NFL's list of players who tested positive for drugs at the NFL Scouting Combine in February. We regret the error."
