U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said at a hearing Tuesday that statements from former Yankees Andy Pettite, Chuck Knoblauch and Mike Stanton that they received injections of performance-enhancing drugs from the trainer, Brian McNamee, could unfairly influence jurors.

Walton said he also is inclined to prevent Clemens' defense team from telling jurors about rape allegations against McNamee that did not result in charges.

The judge also warned of a possible delay in the trial that is set to begin Wednesday, concerning the inability to obtain the audio of Clemens' deposition to House investigators in 2008.
