    Receiver Chris Chambers (ankle) and Antonio Cromartie (hip) both did not practice. Both players have been hampered by these injuries for several weeks.

    It is not a good sign that they are still being hobbled, even after the bye. This will be a situation to monitor the rest of the week.

    The Chargers are pretty healthy after a week off, but two players missed Wednesday’s practice. Wide receiver Chris Chambers (ankle) and cornerback Antonio Cromartie (hip) both rested. Both players played in Week 8 against New Orleans but sat Wednesday due to some soreness.

    When asked about their status, Turner kept his cards close to his vest, but didn’t give a ringing endorsement of either player’s status.

    “When they can’t practice on Wednesday, I start getting concerned,” Turner said.

    Ankle injuries are tough to recover from. Cro's hip, now that's been bothering him for the first half of the season. I wouldn't expect a bye week to cure that.

    I agree both ankle and hip injuries are tough to get through, I have had both and they took me out of comission for months. The problem is you are on them 7/ 24.

    Cro has a bruised nerve in his hip - anyone ever heard of that???? sounds gnarly.....

    Chambers should take his time - we have plenty of depth in our WR corps npnp

    Get well boys!!!

    Chambers can be replaced by Floyd. He has been already. I'm not saying Floyd is better, just that we can survive withut CC. Cro, I think too much time with Dion (sp?) is having an adverse effect.
