    I noticed he was out of the game towards the end and couldn't find him on the sidelines. Does anyone know if he got hurt? I sure hope not!

    I remember something being said at one point. But, being in the EST and drunk by game time, it could have been anything!!

    He was out with an ankle injury but I heard on the radio when I was leaving that it wasn't a big deal

    Losing Darren for a protracted amount of time would be a killer right now. Hester..jesus.

    You're basing that on one carry? Did you expect him to get the ball more? I don't get it. He is merely a backup to D. Sproles who is the back up to LT. He is also a back up to Tolbert. He gets in the mix on ST's.

    It's not his fault he is behind to great backs and a UDFA that stepped up HUGE. Hester day will come, but IMO it's not TOday....

    He has been pretty solid on ST. But fumbling your one carry of the game, ouch, not a way to get yourself more playing time/confidence. Here's hoping he redeems himself soon.

    If you have to get the dropsys out of your system, last night was good time to do it. Hester is a rookie, cut the guy some slack. He's playing behind guys who have dominated games time and time again.

    No, I'm basing that when he gets to play. He was expected to get more playing time at this point, but hasn't. He hasn't looked all that great, that's all I'm saying.:icon_shrug:

    Same with BUSTer IMO.

    The fumble didn't help him BTW.

    Idk if he's a turd because since pre-season ended we haven't had a chance to actually see what he could do. One carry that was a fumble is not a turd in hte making. Seriously give him the damn ball a bit more lets honestly see what he does. If anything the Chargers should've given him the ball again see what he does

    I feel compelled to defend my adopted boy. You are saying Hester is a turd based on what? He has exactly 2 carries this year to date.

    He is playing behind one the greatest backs of all time(LT), a super sub change of pace back(Sproels), and another rookie who has stepped up big time(Tolbert) who is more of a traditional fullback. How many carries does that leave him?

    He has played well on special teams. About the only highlight from the Miami game was Hester causing and recovering a fumble on a miami kickoff return.

    He probably won't get much work as a running back this year unless someone gets hurt. That doesn't mean he is not highly regarded or valuable. How many catches did Vincent Jackson have in his rookie year? Good thing we didn't judge him on one year and discard him. Did you watch the game Sunday night?

    I'll use a baseball analogy. Would you judge a guys career on 2 at bats?:rolleyes:

    I read that they expect him to play, as well as Tucker and Chambers.

    I don't see it with him. He's not a fullback, not a tailback, not a versital back like sproles. I just don't see it, same with "BUSTer". I would have chosen 2 other players. I don't like either.:icon_shrug:
