Eric Williams of ESPN reports that Chargers DT Corey Liuget is suing his former trainer, Ian Danney, for $15 million in damages due to lost wages, pain and suffering for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

Liuget claims Danney is responsible for the consequences of injecting him with a substance banned by the NFL and subsequently receiving a four-game suspension for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

According to the lawsuit, Danney told Liuget he was using a high dose of an over-the-counter, anti-inflammatory to treat Liuget’s pain following a Chargers game last season. However, Liuget claims that Danney lied and injected him with a banned NFL substance.


Steelers G David DeCastro said he was not given a timetable regarding the broken hand and is unsure of when he’ll return.

I think it’s one of those things where they don’t tell you (the timetable) on purpose so I can just keep hoping that I’m going to play and trick myself into (thinking I’m) playing,” DeCastro said, via Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “They never told me it’s going to be three week, it’s going to be one week, it’s going to be 10 weeks.”
