@ChargersPRGuy Antwan Barnes is added as LB depth with Merriman going on IR. Heckendorf fills the spot left open on the PS by Richard Goodman being signed to the team. Heckendorf was signed by the Packers last year as an UDFA, but was released during the pre-season. The same thing happened to him this year in Seattle.

But Ryan [Leaf] also did something I found somewhat redeeming. During training camp of his rookie year with the Chargers, I went down to San Diego. I met him in the lobby of the team's facility, and after coming back with me to my car he ultimately gave me $10,000 in cash -- close to the total amount I had paid him. He never explained why he didn't sign with me nor did he apologize for breaking the promise he made to my dying father, but at least he paid me back.

It’s my hamstring. I have had some treatment on it this week. I plan to play this week. I wouldn’t really call this a major injury. I don’t plan on missing time, and if I do, it will be a game or two.

Weddle did, however, explain how the banned substance was unknowingly ingested. According to Weddle, Gregory attended the Aaron's 499 NASCAR race at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway the weekend of April 25 with some friends. During the trip, it is believed that Gregory consumed a drink that was tainted. That occurred shortly before he was randomly drug-tested by the NFL in early May. A drug on the list of banned performance-enhancing drugs was discovered, which eventually led to Gregory's suspension. In addition to anabolic steroids, banned performance enhancers include anti-estrogenic agents, diuretics and stimulants including cold medication containing pseudoephedrine, prescription drugs like Adderall, Ritalin and over-the-counter herbs like bitter orange, among others. Though Gregory prefers not to disclose the exact substance, Weddle didn't want his friend's name and reputation to be associated with steroids any longer. "It's unfortunate that people put that (steroid stigma) on him when they don't really know what's going on," Weddle said. "Hopefully, people will understand that it wasn't anything close to him taking steroids. It was an unlucky situation where he got his drink drugged. Stuff like that happens, and when it does, you're (out of luck)."

Weddle rushes to suspended Gregory's defense Do you buy the explanation?
