Chargers Backup Center Max Turek Suspended Four Games For PED Violation

Los Angeles Chargers backup center Max Tuerk has been suspended the first four games of 2017 NFL Season after testing positive for PED’s.

Max Tuerk released a statement on the ordeal. “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.”

Max Tuerk was the Chargers third-round draft choice last year but did not see any action. Max Tuerk will be able to play in preseason games as well as participate in practice but will miss four games and return in week 5 against the Giants.
