    I can't believe there's no update on his condition as of yet. And that no one's discussing it. :icon_huh: All I've seen is "ankle sprain", but with no indication of the severity. It was a disheartening sight to see him on that cart.

    Has anyone heard or read anything?

    I read high ankle sprain and that he told Norv it's going to be alright. Other than that, nada.

    I just hope he's ready to go vs the Bears.

    OK - I just got this as part of an injury update email from The Footballs Guys:

    A few injury updates from last night for you.

    -- SD - RB Turner Injures Ankle

    Chargers backup RB Michael Turner left the game on a cart with what's being called a high ankle sprain. The severity is still to be determined but we all know a high ankle sprain is bad news. Obviously, LaDainian Tomlinson is the man in San Diego but when you spend the #1 pick on Tomlinson, it's smart to grab his backup later.

    Some reports have Turner's injury as not very serious but others are fearing he could miss some significant time. Right this second, I'd have to say that Darren Sproles is probably the guy that would back up Tomlinson. Hopefully, you LT guys won't need either Turner or Sproles but insurance is never a bad idea.

    I think I would have been shocked to see if Turner played at all on Thursday regardless of the injury.
