Chargers NT Kwame Geathers carted off with leg injury

Geathers AP

The only losses that matter in the preseason relate to injuries.  The Chargers may have suffered a significant one today in San Francisco.

Nose tackle Kwame Geathers suffered a left leg injury while taking on a pair of 49ers’ offensive linemen in the first quarter of Sunday’s preseason game.  Replays show the left knee appearing to give out while Geathers was taking on the two blockers.

Geathers left the game via cart.  He had moved up to the starting lineup after Sean Lissemore suffered an ankle injury in the second week of the preseason.

    The Bolts DL is looking good, giving Kaep fits. Phillip meanwhile hasn’t missed a pass yet I’m pretty sure. Much love to the 2004 QB class! Hoping he can get a ring eventually like Ben and Eli

    Everyone has scored a touchdown at the new stadium except for that newly overpaid MEDIOCRE quarterback. The great Bay Area sportscaster Greg Papa warned about paying this guy for being merely “below average” of an NFL QB.

    Listening to Joe Buck legitimately hurts on a physical level.

    That sucks he got hurt against such a classless band wagon organization.

    Time for the nfl to look at changing how the game is played in the trenches. With players if the size and strength of today, knee ligaments are popping every 5 minutes. This is not sustainable for the league.

    Yes, Kwame is a nephew of Jumpy Geathers. He also has two brothers in the NFL, Clifton and Robert Geathers.

    =================================

    Not sure how that comment can get four thumbs down votes, but there is four down votes for that comment. Are the down votes because you people don’t like any of the Geathers? or is it the way Smoothie275 structured his sentences or the fact that Kwame has two brothers? or what?

    Well, Posmoo got 6 thumbs down just for asking if Kwame was related to Jumpy Geathers, so I guess its not that bad. :D

    We never replaced Jamal Williams, inserting scrub after scrub at NT for years, one of the most important positions on a 3-4 D. We will never be a top-10 D until we get a stud in the middle of the D line. I’d say it should probably be our #1 priority in the next off season, if not sooner.
