Charles Johnson takes full responsibility after four-game PED suspension

Carolina Panthers defensive end Charles Johnson has been suspended four games for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug use policy, and the veteran has taken full responsibility for his actions.

Unlike many others before him, Johnson did not claim he had a tainted sample or took a product he was unaware was banned. Instead, the 31-year-old admitted he made a poor decision while trying to recover from an injury.

Johnson will be eligible to return to the Panthers on Dec. 25.

Johnson was one of the best pass-rushers in football earlier in his career, but injuries have limited his effectiveness over the past three seasons. The Panthers are 8-3 and appear to be headed to the playoffs, so they could certainly use Johnson’s help when his suspension is up.
