Chargers DT Corey Liuget suing ex-trainer for $15 million over PEDs


Los Angeles Chargers defensive tackle Corey Liuget is suing his former trainer for $15 million over a failed performance-enhancing drugs test.

Liuget is currently serving a four-game suspension after testing positive for PEDs. In his lawsuit, Liuget claims that his trainer, a former Canadian bobsled member, injected him with a substance last year that triggered the positive test, according to ESPN. Liuget says he was led to believe the substance was an over-the-counter product. Liuget also says he was injected with a prescription substance despite him not having a prescription.

The suit says the trainer administered the injections in California, where he does not have a license to give injections.

Liuget was a 2011 first-round pick by the Chargers. He is recovering from foot surgery and restructured his contract to remain with the team. He had 21 tackles in 12 games last season.
