    The Chargers may have gotten some good injury news Wednesday as wide receiver Chris Chambers was walking normally, with his left ankle taped.

    “Better than the prognosis,” he said with a smile. “... Feels better than yesterday, if that's any indication.”

    Chambers' ankle was crushed and rolled in a pile of players after a reception at the 1-yard line Sunday at Miami. He said he thought he had broken it initially, and the outlook was not good Monday for him to play this week.

    Even Wednesday, he wasn't quite ready to declare himself a go for Sunday.

    “I'm just walking right now; that's a good thing,” Chambers said. “As for tomorrow, I'll see when I wake up in the morning.”

    he initially thought he broke it???? yikes! SOOOOOOO glad it doesn't seem to be nearly as serious! Chambers is reliable and makes big plays - so many times I've seen just one of his catches change the momentum in a game. I can't wait until he's healed up and back in business.

    If he can somehow walk or even jog, tape that mother flocker up and get out there! If not, we need Floyd, Buster and Legadu man up and make some plays which I know they all can. Chambers is such a key part of our offense. If he's not at least 80% I say let him rest that ankle to get ready for the Bills. I don't want him to reinjure that ankle and be lost for the season! :icon_eek:

    In San Diego, both starting receivers, Chris Chambers and Vincent Jackson, didn't practice. Chambers has an ankle injury and Jackson has a knee injury.

    While Chambers' absence from practice was expected, he didn't practice Wednesday after being hurt at Miami on Sunday, Jackson's absence was unexpected. He practiced Wednesday with no reported issue.

    It goes without saying San Diego will need at least one of their starting receivers to be ready in its pivotal game Sunday night against New England. Linebacker Jyles Tucker didn't practice again with a hamstring injury.

    Running back LaDainian Tomlinson did practice Thursday. He didn't practice Wednesday because of a turf toe injury he suffered on opening day.

    Tomlinson has routinely been taking practice days off but he has played in every game.

    Cornerback Antonio Cromartie (hip) and fullback Mike Tolbert (ankle) were limited in practice Thursday. Cromartie did practice fully Wednesday while Tolbert was limited.

    Egads! This reminds me of the last time we played them, with so many injuries. Methinks this time it's our turn to win.

    Let's all blame Norv for this mess, you know if he was a better HC no one would be hurt/injured. If you don't believe me just ask the Norv experts.:icon_tease:

    Hey, it's true. Our strength and conditioning coach has nothing to do with it.
