    An entirely Nuts ‘n’ Bolts notebook:
    • Wide receiver Patrick Crayton, out since Aug. 22 surgery to remove bone spurs from his ankle, is expected to practice Wednesday. That will be a test to see if he can practice again Thursday, more than anything. Crayton practiced last Monday and declared himself on target for the opener, then did not practice again.

    • The Chargers signed running back Curtis Brinkley to the practice squad and released tight end Brad Taylor. Brinkley had a hamstring injury that the Chargers determined has healed since they released him on Sept. 3.

    • More than 10,000 tickets remain for each of the next two home games, Sept. 25 against Kansas City and Oct. 2 against Miami.

    • The better Norv Turner is at calling plays, the more he will pay this year in support of an organization that fights hunger in San Diego. Turner and his wife, Nancy, will donate $500 for every touchdown the Chargers score in 2011 to Feeding America San Diego. Melissa’s Produce will match that donation, meaning $3,000 was raised on Sunday. The Chargers have averaged 50 touchdowns over Turner’s previous four seasons.

    • The Chargers, who ranked second in the NFL over the past two seasons converting third downs of 10 yards or longer (28.9 percent) failed to convert any of their three such tries against the Vikings.

    • The Chargers’ failed fourth-and-20 play on Sunday was just the eighth time Turner has gone for a fourth down try longer than six yards as Chargers coach. That’s tied with New Orleans and Chicago for fewest over that span. The Chargers have converted two of those eight.

    This isn't good if San Diego wants to keep the Chargers out of LA...

    and it does not help that we play 2 teams that do not travel well. If the other team does not buy the extra tickets, it looks like a blackout because we cannot get enough fan support in this city.
