    Injuries will be the topic of conversation and concern around Chargers Park all week after several starters came out of Monday night's season-opening victory with various injuries.


    The Chargers will also likely have to make at least one move to shore up the interior of their offensive line.


    Center Nick Hardwick (ankle) and right guard Louis Vasquez (knee) are not expected to practice on Wednesday and could be in jeopardy of missing Sunday's home opener against the Baltimore Ravens.


    Defensive linemen Jamal Williams (arm) and Luis Castillo (arm) are also likely to miss practice time and could be limited or sitting on the sideline come Sunday.


    And then there's LaDainian Tomlinson, who suffered an ankle sprain at the end of the first quarter.


    Turner said that because Michael Bennett is here now, the Chargers don't have to use LaDainian Tomlinson in the same manner they did in 2008, continuing to keep him on the field because he was the best option, even hurt.


    "That was one of the reasons for that decision," Turner said of keeping Bennett. "We have a backup plan ... We'll see how LT is one day-to-day basis."

    Is it beginning to sound as if LT might be on the trading block come next season?

    I sure hope AJ can give us some O-Line help this week from free agents left and or make trades to get some. We desperately need it now. Injuries are hurting us badly.

    Some of us were screeding for more beef in the draft.
