Canseco testifies before grand jury

Former slugger Jose Canseco has completed his testimony before a federal grand jury in Washington.

Canseco was expected to maintain his support for Roger Clemens on Thursday. The grand jury has been hearing witnesses as it weighs whether to indict Clemens for allegedly lying to Congress two years ago, when he denied using steroids or human growth hormone.

Canseco has previously conveyed his support for Clemens. He said in a March 2008 affidavit that he has never seen Clemens use, possess or ask for steroids or HGH.

One of Canseco's lawyers has said his client's testimony Thursday will be consistent with Canseco's past statements.
