Chargers' Brown banned four games for substance abuse

San Diego Chargers defensive tackle Garrett Brown has been suspended for the first four games of the 2012 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.


The 23-year-old Brown, who signed with the Chargers in May and has never appeared in an NFL game, can participate in all of his team's preseason practices and games, the league said in a statement.

Brown will be eligible to return to the Chargers' active roster on October 1, after the team's September 30 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
