Ya. Two players who never started will be playing both OLB positions for the next 4 games.

Now Merriman is saying he did nothing wrong and that a supposed supplement he was taking caused a false positive on his test.

He's appealing his suspension and if I heard correctly he'll be able to play in the Chargers next two games until a final ruling comes out.


I'm guessing Merriman's agent is Floyd Landis.

At least on a small positive note, Phillips injury wasn't quite as bad. Only 2 weeks.

And I do believe Merriman. I don't think he's stupid enough to take steroids on purpose.

So then by accident? Like, his butt cheeks accidentally landed on a siringe??? LOL...i'm just messing around. If it was a supplement, i hope that gets cleared up. If not, 4 game suspension is not nearly enough.

If it was a supplement that had the steroid in it,I think the suspension should be taken down to two games isntead of four.

The government really needs to start regulating these damn supplements.

Doesn't matter if it's a supplement -- just ask Kris Jenkins of the mighty Carolina Panthers, the NFL would be starting a new precedent if they accept that excuse..

No player should be taking anything that isn't FDA approved and expect it to be legal with 100% assurance.
