Kris Dielman’s season has come to an end.
Dielman, the Chargers offensive lineman who suffered a concussion on October 23 against the Jets, kept playing and then suffered a seizure on the flight home, has been placed on injured reserve.
The Dielman case has led to increased scrutiny on the way the NFL handles concussions, and the league office has told game officials to look for concussion symptoms.
The 30-year-old Dielman has been to each of the last four Pro Bowls. Until this concussion, he had never missed more than one game in a single season since 2003, when he joined the Chargers as an undrafted rookie.
