    I sent a tweet to Marty to see if she knew any more. I'll post it if I hear anything (from her or otherwise)

    He seems to be ok considering he's up about and was attending but not participating in practice. Probably more precautionary then anything else

    And agreed about Green, I'd rather Mrzucowski as I've said repeatedly

    Is Schilling a LG or LT? I wouldn't mind seeing him..

    Obviously a BIG loss but I'm not too worried.. We'll be okay..

    Thoughts and prayers are with Dielman for a speedy recovery!

    I believe Schilling is a Guard. We'll be okay with Greene (sp), yeah, he's not that great, but he's not that bad either.

    Report: Kris Dielman had seizure on plane after concussion
    Posted by Mike Florio on October 27, 2011, 10:14 PM EDT

    Chargers offensive lineman Kris Dielmansuffered a concussion during Sunday’s game against the Jets. More troubling is the fact that, on the flight home from New York, Dielman reportedly suffered a seizure, arising from the concussion.

    Even more troubling is that the injury occurred in the fourth quarter of the game, but Dielman continued to play. (Have we mentioned that the NFL doesn’t have independent neurologists on the sidelines at games?)

    The Associated Press reports that an ambulance met the plane when it arrived in San Diego, and that Dielman was hospitalized overnight. Dielman wouldn’t comment on the matter, other than to say he won’t be playing on Monday night against the Chiefs.

    Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Dielman will miss at least two games following the concussion and seizure, which per Acee was “violent” and “scary.”

    Here’s hoping that the NFL decides in the wake of this incident to implement meaningful procedures aimed at spotting concussions and getting players who have suffered concussions out of games — and that every lower level of the sport eventually will follow suit. Anyone who has been paying any attention to high school football lately knows that the culture has not yet changed, and that as a result players are staying in games when they simply shouldn’t be.

    It’s time for the NFL to provide real leadership on this issue, not lip service aimed at placating Congress and/or CYA memos intended to satisfy the lawyers.

    Hearing rumblings that team trainer(s) are witholding info keeping Dielman from getting a second opinion. IF true - those trainers should be GONE. We're talking about someone's life here, this goes beyond football and a paycheck.

    Frankly, I'm amazed that the team doctor is still employed...... that guy has a ton of shady stuff on his resume.

    True. I wouldn't let that guy diagnose my in-laws.
    But Dielman said he was okay, stood up, didn't even look at the sidelines, and kept going.
    I doubt any doctor in the NFL would have called him off at that point.

    Rule #1: Never rely on the player's word..... tough guys never want to come out of the game.

    On TV, it clearly looked like Dielman was dazed for a bit. The doctors have to err on the side of caution, and remove the player long enough to evaluate them.

    They didn't get to talk to him. He didn't even look their way.
    Also, we see a lot more on TV than the doctors do.

    Now, the Chargers guys watching the TV could have radioed down to the training staff, but that's not on the training staff. Their depth was limited, and no coaches were going to call the trainers over and say 'take a look at Dielman'....

    They may have to in the future.

    The helmet technology needs to be upgraded...... there are some better solutions out there, but the NFL is slow to adopt them.

    It'll slow down the game until they work out the technology, and that's a long way from happening.
    These guys know they're risking their health.
    More fireman die/yr than football players and they're doing something useful while getting paid far less.

    All that said, they SHOULD probably err on the side of caution. And up the active roster # to 70. But the owners don't want that...

    Man, I hope he is ok. Screw football, screw all of it, Dielman is a cool guy and I hate to see a guy like that get his brains scrambled for a game. I hope he takes as long as he needs, get as many opinions as he needs, ect. Just keep him the hell away from the field until he is right.

    It was obvious when he got knocked out on the field Sun, but what really blows my mind is this: How in the hell can all of us airchair QBs see this plain as day on our couches and the coaching staff, 10-15 yards aways from the guy, cannot? Unreal.

    Fire everyone immediately.

    Scary seizure on the plane. Hope nothing serious, and speedy recovery. This will be a big loss on the O-line.

    This is a great shame, not only for the loss on the field that we'll feel, but a horrible thing for him and his family to go through. Hope he gets well soon!

    I saw the play where he got up wobbling and told the other linemen he was OK. I felt the Coaches should have pulled him out right away.

    When a tough hombre like Dielman says he's ok, there's only so much you can do. This isn't paddycakes they are playing. I hope he's alright. Thinking about a 340 lb. manmoth like him having a violent seizure in such a confined space must have been a singularly frightening experience.

    No it is not pattycakes. It is the NFL, and there is an increased focus on concussions and the long term effects there of.
