Left guard Kris Dielman has been placed on season ending injured reserve. This is hardly surprising considering the scary incident which took place following the game against the Jets. Dielman suffered a concussion during the game, but nobody on the Charger staff noticed and he finished playing the game. He suffered a seizure on the flight home. He has not played since, and his season officially ended with the injured reserve designation.
If that wasn’t bad enough, left tackle Marcus McNeill and right guard Louis Vasquez are also likely to miss Sunday’s game with injuries they suffered in the last game.
The Chargers acquired Scott Moll and Ike Ndukwe to address the injuries. Moll has not played since the preseason, and Ndukwe has not played in the regular season since 2009.
This is not the best of news for the Bolts who struggled mightily, giving up six sacks to the Raiders in their last game. It seems more and more unlikely that the Chargers will right the ship. If Norv has any tricks up his sleeve, he better play them now.
