Chargers left tackle Marcus McNeill underwent surgery on his knee for the second time since the 2010 season ended.
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports McNeill had a bone spur removed recently. McNeill said on the radio that he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery back in February.
This isn’t a huge problem, but it’s a rare sour note in a mostly sunny training camp for the Chargers. The team fortified its roster by bringing back key veterans and spent more in free agency than usual.
“The caliber of guys they brought in was exciting to all of us,” center Nick Hardwick said earlier this week.
It seems like preseason prognosticators have grown tired of picking the Chargers, but they have a balanced roster and a top-five quarterback once again this season. Florio may disagree, but I see them as one of the AFC favorites.
