McNeill, Oben updates

Left tackle Marcus McNeill had surgery yesterday to place a pin in his broken right hand but is not expected to miss any practice time or a game.
McNeill broke the hand against Pittsburgh on Oct. 8 but played Sunday. He had surgery in August to put a pin in his broken left hand.

Meanwhile, it seems likely that left tackle Roman Oben will not return to practice for another few weeks.

While Oben, on the Physically Unable to Perform list following offseason foot surgeries, is healthy enough to practice, the Chargers don't have to make a move with Oben until Nov. 7. At that point, they have a 21-day window wherein he can practice but not be activated.

McNeill is playing well, and the Chargers believe in backup Corey Lekkerkerker. Should one of them get injured, Oben's return could be accelerated.
