The Chargers came away from the Bay area with a win in their first game of the season. But they also took with them a bruised up team.
There are several injuries that the Chargers are addressing today. Although there were not many details given in today’s press conference regarding the severity of the injuries, there was some relief in the fact that none of injuries will require surgery or are season ending.
On Monday night, fans witnessed Nick Hardwick lying on the field in pain to the extent that he could not leave under his own power and a cart had to come take him back to the locker room. His injury is being called a foot injury and he will miss practice time this week and may not be able to go on Sunday, but it does not appear, at least at this point, to be a serious as first thought.
Louis Vasquez has a knee injury and will not practice on Wednesday and depending on progress throughout the week, he may also miss the Charger home opener.
Both Luis Castillo and Jamal Williams have arm injuries and will also likely miss practice time this week and will need to be monitored to see if they will be ready for game day.
Ladainian Tomlinson, who was visibly limping on the sidelines Monday night, has an ankle sprain that occurred during the first quarter of the game in Oakland. Tomlinson is being called a game time decision. Michael Bennett will likely practice with the first team this week in case LT cannot play on Sunday.
