    NFL News Updates - CBSSports.com RapidReports

    Oct. 27, 2010 8:14 p.m. - WR Legedu Naanee (hamstring), who has missed the last two games, started practice on Wednesday. Naanee appeared frustrated after making a catch while warming up and didn't finish practice. "I like what I saw," coach Norv Turner said. "We will see where he is at tomorrow." Chargers RapidReports

    Like to see him on the field as soon as hes able.

    Also didnt realize this untill just now, but love to hear it:

    Oct. 27, 2010 8:26 p.m. - Last week the team released QB J.T. O'Sullivan and listed WR Legedu Naanee as the third-string quarterback for the Patriots game. Coach Norv Turner said that if the situation arose, Naanee -- among others -- would be capable of running a Wildcat-style offense. Chargers RapidReports

    Not that I didnt think he could, I had been on the wagon of cutting Whitey last year and letting just this be the situation at 3rd qb in a severe emergency. Also interesting thye made this move, maybe he is near ready to go and was just held out of NE game for safety sake...:bolt2:

    And sounds like a bad finger injury for Goodman.

    Oct. 27, 2010 8:11 p.m. - WR Richard Goodman left Wednesday's practice after he injured his right ring finger attempting to catch a pass. After practice, his hand was on ice and wrapped. Goodman said he dislocated the upper joint of his ring finger and split the webbing between his ring and middle finger. Chargers RapidReports

    Naanee coming back will be a big help. Goodmans injury sounds pretty gruesome.

    Im not a big legedu fan, and personally i dont think hes a starting caliber outside WR, BUT with that said, we need our WRs back ASAP. I mean rivers can make any WRs look good, but he needs help too, and we arent going to beat too many teams with a WR core of Crayton/Buster/Goodman/Tutu

    I think Lego is going to be iffy with his hammy. Goodman needs to rub some dirt on it and re-locate the dislocated finger and tape it up.

    I wonder if Rivers threw a 5 yard heater at Goodman to punish him for being a dork ? Leaving the ball on the turf....I busted up laughing and screamed this is not college you ahole. I like Goodman but damn.....practice simple fundamentals like playing until you hear a whistle.

    He -SORT OF- made up for his gaff when he recovered that onside kick. At least he didn't leave that one on the turf.

    Our starting 3 need to be Legs, Crayton, and Ajirotoutou.....screw Buster.

    I'd like to see PR toss one up to Tutu in the endzone this week.

    Legedu Naanee did not practice today due to a sore hamstring. Davis didn't practice either due to his injury du jour, Gates has turf toe (today was the first time I've seen that description), Goodman is restricted to special teams, Floyd is out, and Jackson can't come back until Indy. Acee brought up Banks a couple of days ago but that didn't come to fruition.

    Interesting. Could be that they are confident he is ready to go and dont wanna risk a reagrivation. Also Legs was asigned 3rd string QB duty in the NE game. IMO that means he was 80-90% ready to go for that game. Id like to think he is over his hammy, and Floyd is 1-2 weeks behind on his.

    Also what site gave the turf toe injury update? That is also first time I heard them call it turf toe... Turf toe is a bigger career killer than concussions or ACL tears.

    Also would like to see Tutu's first NFL td go down this weekend.

    Every time the Chargers training staff releases a little more info it gets a little worse on Gates.

    First it wasn't supposed to be the same toe he had surgery one...then it is...then its something that will affect him all year.....now its turf toe an injury that has ended carrers.

    BTW...I don't believe Kaeding is injured. I think he's faking it. He says..'there is no timetable for a return, but when it feels better I'll be out there.'

    I think this kid is a mental midgit, the slip on the turf in STL sets up a good injury excuse, and he better be using this time off spending 8hrs a day with a sports shrink.

    Well what I hate is ankle or toe, as soon as the first hit happend I started to hold my breath and I knew then it was long term aka all season long trouble.

    Also on the subject of AG status saw this Rapid Report:

    Oct. 28, 2010 7:45 p.m. - TE Antonio Gates (toe), who missed all of last week's practices before playing against the Patriots, hasn't practiced so far this week. "(I'm) trying to minimize as much pain as I can throughout the week, so I can go ahead and play on Sunday," Gates said. Chargers RapidReports

    I already commend him for his PR-like efforts to sacrfice bodily harm for the sake of the team. BUT I really dont want to force Gates to be playing if he TRUELY isnt able to play close to 100%. I just want Gates to survive for his HOF career he has still ahead of him. Same goes for PR no more playing thru multipe games with the need for knee surgery pending and jus hobbling through games in a huge leg brace.

    Also speakin of kickers, saw this on Brown:

    Oct. 28, 2010 8:30 p.m. - K Kris Brown (left ankle) was limited in practice on Thursday. Brown's health is a concern because K Nate Kaeding (groin) is still unavailable. However, Brown was seen in the locker room after practice, and he didn't have a noticeable limp. Chargers RapidReports

    2 kickers 4 LS 1 punter... how many gunners?? ST has been the biggest carousel of the NFL this year.

    NOTEBOOK: Rivers making it work with limited options
    By Kevin Acee

    Thursday, October 28, 2010 at 5:19 p.m.

    Something of a perfectionist when it comes to the position, Norv Turner doesn’t freely compliment quarterbacks.

    But of Philip Rivers’ one-touchdown, one-interception performance Sunday against the New England Patriots, in which Rivers amassed a pedestrian 82.1 passer rating, Turner said: “I don’t know if he can play any better than he played.”

    Rivers would be the first to say he missed a few throws. But some of those – including one incompletion that could have set the Chargers up for a much easier game-tying field goal -- were on routes run hesitantly. There were five drops, including one on the final drive that could have been a 10-yard gain.

    On a day that featured Malcom Floyd and Legedu Naanee watching from the sideline due to hamstring injuries and Antonio Gates slowed by turf toe, the Chargers wide receiver corps included two rookies (Seyi Ajirotutu and Richard Goodman) who had never caught an NFL pass and two veterans (Patrick Crayton and Buster Davis) who had caught a combined 56 passes from Rivers.

    It looks as if it will be more of the same this Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.

    Davis, Floyd, Gates and Naanee did not practice Thursday and all are in question for Sunday, though Gates and Davis (ribs) are expected to play and Naanee was able to work in a limited manner Wednesday.

    Meanwhile, Rivers just keeps working to get in a rhythm with who he has.

    “It does take time, but we don’t have time,” Rivers said. “We gotta go win this week. We got to make it work now.”

    With Floyd and Gates both out the second half at St. Louis and then last week’s game, Rivers’ passer rating has fallen almost eight points to 98.7.

    Further, while the absence of Vincent Jackson did not affect the Chargers’ vertical passing game while their other regular were healthy, it has become a detriment the past two games.

    Going into St. Louis, Rivers led the league in effectiveness on passes that travel more than 20 yards in the air. But two of his past four such attempts have been intercepted, including the only one Rivers attempted Sunday (after attempting 28 the first six games). And after leading the league with 32 completions of 20 or more yards through five games, the Chargers have just seven such completions the past two weeks.

    Rivers, as usual, is positive. And with the regulars sitting, this week has afforded a chance for him to work more extensively with the new guys.

    “It gets better each and every day,” Rivers said. “It is certainly not at the level it is with Malcolm or Legedu or Buster. When you have thrown as many balls as you have thrown to them and you’ve thrown as few balls as you have to the other guys, you certainly can’t say it’s the same, but certainly those guys

    want to be where they are supposed to be. They want to do good. They try hard. They work at it, and if they are in there, as you saw the other day, I’m going to give them the ball if they are the guy that is open, that comes open, and they’ll do well.”

    Nuts ‘n’ Bolts
    • As expected, Sunday’ game will be blacked out. The Chargers fell about 8,000 tickets short of selling the required number of non-premium tickets.

    • Jackson is expected to report to Chargers Park today, though he is not expected to speak publicly. He can practice with the team while he serves his time on the Roster Exempt List but will not be eligible to play until Nov. 28 at Indianapolis. Said Turner: “I’m anxious to see Vincent … But myself and everyone who is going to play Sunday are zeroed in on this football game, and we will deal with … how we plan on getting Vincent ready starting on Monday.”

    • It appears Tennessee quarterback Vince Young, who has not played since spraining his knee and ankle on Oct. 18, will start Sunday. Young has a 98.8 passer rating this season, but the Chargers have beaten him all four times they’ve faced him and held him to a 43.9 rating. Last season, Young had a 96.8 rating in his eight starts going into a Dec. 25 game against the Chargers, in which he had an 11.9 rating.

    • A day after dislocating a finger and tearing the webbing on his right hand, receiver Richard Goodman returned to practice. He is expected to play Sunday, though likely only on special teams.

    • Inside linebacker Brandon Siler (foot) missed two games before returning last Sunday. He has not practiced this week.

    • Placekicker Kris Brown (ankle) was limited Thursday.
