Former USC and current Chargers lineman Max Tuerk has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2017 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.
Tuerk: “This offseason, I made the mistake of taking over-the-counter supplements. In doing so, I opened myself up to the possibility of consuming a tainted supplement – something that ultimately led to a positive test for a banned substance. I accept responsibility for my actions and understand the NFL’s policy is very clear on this matter. This is a very hard way to learn a lesson, and I will never make this mistake again.”
