Nwagbuo lands on injured reserve

The Chargers have lost another nose tackle. 

The first one, Jamal Williams, was lost for the year in the first game of the 2009 regular season.

Now, Ogemdi Nwagbuo is heading for injured reserve.

Nwagbuo has played in every game, starting only the first five after Williams was lost for the year.  Ian Scott has started four of the last five games.

The Chargers have filled Nwagbuo’s roster spot by signing defensive tackle Antonio Garay from the Jets’ practice squad.

Nwagbuo has been suffering from an ankle injury.

    Another name added to the list that will be used by Charger fans for the reason why the Chargers didn’t make it to the Super Bowl…..again.

    They may have to try and trade for a quality NT before too long. The NT is vital in the 3-4 and you cant keep these plug-n-play guys and expect them to help your defense survive the playoffs.
    I would expect in the next 3 weeks for the Bolts to give up more rushing yards than any other team in the league.
    Dallas, Cincy and Tennessee.
    Chris Johnson might break 300 on ‘em…

    John, here you go:

    I trust the U-T more than PFT.
    This article didn’t mention that Jamal’s backup Ryon Bingham went down in preseason and was placed on the IR before the season started. So that’s now three DTs that have landed on the IR list.
