    Any word about this in the local media today or last night? I saw the trainer rubbing something on his wrist a couple of times in the sideline shots last night. Once it looked like they were spraying it with something. We have a cold spray that we use on the sidelines at HS games for injures that aren't too serious but could use ice if there was time.

    I think the game dictated he didn't throw much, but IF his wrist is hurting that also is another factor. If he played every snap of that game it also couldn't be too bad. With a rookie as his backup, I'm probably overly interested. :)

    I saw him talking to Olivea and you could tell he told him that he was fine. He probably caught a helmet and bruised it. It's Igor's injury that has me concerned.

    That would match up with what I saw.

    There really isn't much. Chargers.com said that he hurt his knee on the first series and his status for next week in unknown.

    They may also activate Derreck Robinson for the Tennessee game to go in Igor's place if he can't play or provide DL depth.

    From Jay Posner of the UT:

    Olshansky said he believed he would be fine, and Schottenheimer said the team's medical staff agreed the injury did not appear serious. “I felt a little pinch,” Olshansky said. “I don't have an expert opinion, but I feel OK. I didn't feel anything bad. I'm moving around, walking.”

    Yeah a lot of times knees seem worse at the initial time than they turn out to be...give it a few days and see where he stands. The schedule has been a break for us so far this year.
