The Chargers will play the second half of the game at Denver without linebacker Manti Te’o.  The rookie suffered a concussion in the first half of the game.

The Chargers also may not have punter Mike Scifres, who injured his back while stopping Broncos receiver Eric Decker from returning a punt to the end zone.

Kicker Nick Novak will punt.  Unless Novak gets hurt.  On the opening kickoff of the second half, Novak made the tackle of Broncos return specialist Trindon Holliday.
