Gaither doubtful, Kaeding out for Chargers

The Chargers likely won’t be giving tackle Jared Gaither another chance to fail to tap out in a key moment.

Gaither is doubtful with a groin injury that helped seal San Diego’s loss at New Orleans on Sunday night.  Gaither, clearly injured before the final Chargers’ snap, stayed in the game and was clearly beaten by Saints defensive end Martez Wilson.  Coach Norv Turner later said that Gaither should have made his condition known.

Also doubtful for the Chargers is cornerback Shareece Wright (foot).  Kicker Nate Kaeding will miss another game with a groin injury.

Two of the Chargers’ key receivers — Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal — are questionable with a groin injury and hamstring injury, respectively.

    Norv is a fool. The whole world saw Gaither come up lame the play before– SOMEBODY on the chargers side should have seen it and got him out of there.

    The blame is entirely on Norvelle and his staff. To put it on the player will only serve to lose the faith of the locker room.

    When this seson ends in failure they will look to this incident as the tipping point.

    Without Gaither, Rivers health is in danger.

    Stupid Norv. Damn it’s hard being a Charger fan. Well at least I have the Lakers!

    If you truly are a charger fan you won’t worry about the GM or the coach just enjoy what we have on the field not in a office. Who was the GM/Head Coach in 1983? Get it, these guys are like ships passing in the night. There a bigger picture here and getting a new stadium that will be around for 40 years from now will have nothing to do with AJ or Norv. This is where we will end our days not these two.

    I just think its funny that Collinsworth called it right before it happened. And we all saw it coming. The sad thing is, our offense seemed to have the most fire they’d had all night, on that drive.

    Thats funny how all other teams have abunch of ups or downs. Like the charger home games nobody gives cares about this sad team. 7 ratings at the top. All two charger fans are hating on the raiders. Y all are gonna get blown out tomorrow by a mediocre denver team.

    @JoeToronto

    I still don’t even know the Raiders’ head coach’s name. And it doesn’t matter because it will probably be a different name next year. And the next year. And the next year.

    @natelan69- Once again you manage to bring the RAIDERS into your trite ramblings. Every post, regardless of topic, you mention the RAIDERS. To say you are obsessed would be a glaring understatement. It’s hilarious and pathetic all at once.

    The RAIDERS HC is Dennis Allen, you will know his name soon enough.

    Keep relishing those regular season wins charger fan- in 50+ years it’s all you have.
