Broncos ignoring Chargers' sticky situation

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - The Denver Broncos don't have much to say about the sticky situation the San Diego Chargers find themselves in.

The Broncos returned from their break Monday to discover the NFL was investigating whether the Chargers used a banned sticky substance during their historic 35-24 loss to Denver last week.

Broncos coach John Fox said he'll leave the probe up to the league "and they'll let us know the outcome."

Chargers coach Norv Turner said Monday that nobody from the Chargers used Stickum, which was banned by the league in 1981, in the loss to the Broncos on Oct. 15 or in any other game. He said the league is looking into a towel that the team uses to dry the ball, the gloves worn by players and their arms.
