McCarthy: Packers Careful About Using Supplements
Next game: Sunday, December 7th vs. Houston
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers coach Mike McCarthy says his team takes precautions that help prevent the recent drug-related suspensions handed out to six other players.
The six play for the Vikings, Saints and Texans. They were suspended after testing positive for a banned diuretic, which was in a dietary supplement they took.
NFL rules say players are responsible for everything they ingest. So McCarthy has his players check with two strength coaches before taking anything that could put them at risk for suspension.
McCarthy says his team hasn't had a problem so far, and hopefully things will stay that way.
