Chargers place Goodman on IR, bring back Ajirotutu

Richard Goodman

Chargers wide receiver Richard Goodman left the team short handed when he injured his hamstring on the opening kickoff.

So since they have to play Thursday night, they didn’t have time to catch a new guy up.

Chargers coach Norv Turner announced the team placed Goodman on injured reserve, and signed former Chargers wideout Seyi Ajirotutu, who was with the team in 2010.

“With the injury to Richard Goodman, we need to get someone in here who can play Thursday night,” Turner said, via the team’s official website. “Obviously Seyi has been here before and knows what we’re doing.

“We should be able to get him to where he’s able to function should he’s called upon.”

Ajirotutu was with the Panthers last year, but was released in final cuts.

Chris Carr returned the only other kickoff yesterday, and Turner said he wasn’t ready to say who might do that job Thursday.

    Im sorry but is anyone else so sick of hearing about anything having to do with the Chargers? They are seriously a joke and my bank account hates them from all the times I’ve thought they were “finally about to pull thru” and i dropped shackles on them.

    Fire Norv.

    Ah, Norv has finally killed this team…

    No big surprise there.

    But guess what Joey, they can still beat the Faiders as usual. Pretty sad for them wouldn’t you say…

    Is he going to be the head coach? If not than this is just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

    I’m just praying for the day I read the headline that states Norv has been fired….

    SMH :(

    I bet Humbolt thinks this is the signing of the year

  9. joetoronto says: Oct 29, 2012 6:32 PM

    As usual? The usual historically is the Chargers getting beat by the Raiders…ANNUALLY. But that being said, the Chargers racked up a whopping 6 points against the vaunted Superbowl contending Cleveland Browns.

    Charger receivers not able to hold on the ball without a stickum towel, a QB that is turnover prone, and a dead man walking lame duck head coach. Who’s more the faider?

    Norv…good OC but tuurble coach, just like romeo in KC but hes DC

  14. yaryers says: Oct 29, 2012 7:09 PM

    Chris Carr as the backup KR just goes to show how poor this roster is. There aren’t any explosive athletes on this team. Good job with that, AJ. Anyone remember two seasons ago when they had Jacob Hester returning kicks for a game or two? That’s not the Hester you want returning kicks.

    And Weddle as a PR is just as bad. He’s not a natural punt fielder…he’s trying to catch it on his chest, rather than catching with his hands and pulling it into his chest.

    Bottom line, Fire Norv; Fire AJ.

    @r8rh8r- The ONLY reason why the chargers won that week 1 was the RAIDERS having to use their #3 MLB as a long snapper.

    It will be sorted in Week 17 when your bolts are well out of the picture.

  16. joetoronto says: Oct 29, 2012 7:34 PM

    Norv is perfect for the Chargers, he’s a loser.

  17. siaaa says: Oct 29, 2012 7:35 PM

    Great move AJerk. this move will not only put them back in the AFC West race but in the hunt for the SB. this is the type of move that has you get over the hump.
    Please bring back LT for one day to play in the SB

  18. tindeaux says: Oct 29, 2012 7:37 PM

    mr. do-you-know-who-i-am is back… remember a couple years back when he was arrested somewhere in the east coast, he asked the cop that question? gotta love this guy. good talent is indeed so hard to find now a day…

    @tindeaux

    That was Legedu Naannee

    It’s much easyer to change my loyalty than it is to wait for the Chargers to have a winning team

    Are you sure you know what “loyalty” means?

    I’m no “Fairweather” fan, as I’ve been a Chargers fan for over 25 years now…. I’ll stick with them even if Norv Turner is still the HC…

    But I was sad when I read the Headline and realized that he is still, in fact, our HC…

    Please fire him already. Let’s try and turn this season around and get ourselves set up for next year while we’re at it. Make your Fans happy, and fire him.

    God people really need to stop blaming Norv Turner for this team’s problems. They have consistently made it to the playoffs sans 2 years under his coaching and have been the power house in the AFC West. It’s not Norv Turner’s fault the AJ Smith ran LT and Vincent Jackson out of town and it’s sure as heck not his fault that Marcus McNeill and Kris Deilman were forced into retirement due to injuries completely decimating the offensive line. AJ Smith is the one that needs to go, he is the one who has burned bridges and ruined this team… oh and he’s also the one who spent a #1 pick on a RB who can’t hold onto the ball or stay healthy.

    I don’t know. They went from 13-3 to 9-7 to 8-8 to this. Smith should catch some blame, but he didn’t call that end-around Sunday. The Chargers didn’t score a single fourth quarter point all month. That’s on the coach.

  25. sdboltaction says: Oct 29, 2012 10:10 PM

    I think what I fear most is replacing Turner and Smith with even more inept staff… As hard as that may be… Spanos is a cheapo though, not sure he’ll care about doing what it takes to win.

    oh boy they are back to hangin their hopes on Tutu like they did 2 years ago when they couldn’t get VJ in and they missed the playoffs, Superbowl here they come! AJ Smith is a football genius!!!
