From USA Today Inside Slant


PLAYER NOTES

—LT Marcus McNeill underwent surgery Monday to insert a pin in his broken right hand; he aggravated the injury against the 49ers. McNeill will wear a heavy pad in practice and play on Sunday, according to the club. McNeill underwent a similar procedure when breaking his left hand during the preseason.

—LT Roman Oben (foot) is eligible to come off the PUP list and start practicing if the club chooses.

—S Bhawoh Jue (knee) could be eased into practice this week.

—RT Shane Olivea (knee) appears to have dodged a close call with a serious injury. He got tangled up in a pile at Sunday's game and had to be helped from the field. But the Chargers are saying he will practice this week.

—Rookie QB Charlie Whitehurst took his first NFL snap and it was a kneel-down to end Sunday's game. Whitehurst has held off veteran Billy Volek for the backup job.

—ILB Tim Dobbins will be nursing sore ribs this week. Dobbins is a key special teams player and could be a future starter.

Man sports guys are being really bad about NFL firsts for the Chargers. In the Ravens game after Floyd caught his TD, they put up a stat on the TV that said it was his first NFL TD catch (it was his first since he caught Rivers first TD pass back in 2004).

I'm glad McNeill isn't Fonoti. Fatnoti would have already been on IR .... for the last broken bone in his hand.

Didn't Whitehurst take his first snap in the Titans game? :icon_huh:
Yes, he also ran in a TD. USA Today is dead wrong. They also say that because he took the kneel down he has held off Volek for the backup QB spot. That isn't true either.

And fatnoti's rehab would have been lifting food into his mouth all day.

Fonoti would have sued for workman's comp and retired.

I honestly wonder how dominant McNeill is going to be when he finally gets to play with two working hands. I mean, it's not like the guy has struggled...

:icon_eek: McNeill is dominant now.:icon_eek:

:icon_eek: It is going to be very scary to see what he can do with both of his hands intact and 100%.:icon_eek:

Just amputate his hands and replace them with 24" extensions.
