Coach Norv Turner says nobody from the San Diego Chargers used Stickum in a Monday night loss to the Denver Broncos on Oct. 15 or in any other game.

POWER RANKINGS

Which teams are looking up in this week's NFL power rankings?

Turner was reacting Monday to an investigation by the NFL into whether the Chargers used a banned sticky substance during a 35-24 loss to Denver.

Turner says the team does use a towel, which is used by ''a lot of teams in this league,'' to dry the ball, gloves worn by players and their arms.

Turner says the NFL is looking into the towel.

Fox Sports reported Sunday that officials made an equipment manager empty his pockets and found a skin-colored or clear type of tape.
