NFL security is investigating the Chargers for allegedly using a banned, “stick-em” type substance, according to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer.

Per the report, the investigation centers on an equipment manager who was hiding “illegal sticky substances” and giving it to players in Monday night’s game against the Broncos. A line judge saw it and had it confiscated to be sent to the Broncos and the league.

The Chargers blew a 24-point lead and lost to the Broncos 35-24. They are on a bye in Week Seven.
