The latest brouhaha came Sunday night, when Jackson’s season debut ended after only three plays.
The Chargers announced that Jackson suffered a right calf injury. Skeptics on the Internet and San Diego’s radio stations, meanwhile, questioned whether Jackson was actually hurt.
Wide receiver Vincent Jackson almost certainly will not play Sunday against the Oakland Raiders and could be out longer with a strained right calf suffered Sunday in Indianapolis.
Biggest area to fix: slow defensive start: The Colts easily scored on the first drive of the game before falling apart. The same thing happened last week to the San Diego defense in a 35-14 win over the Broncos. The Chargers overcame the slow starts, but they’d still like to start games better on defense.
With a 6-5 record and a four-game winning stream, the Chargers have sold all non-premium seats in advance of Sunday’s game against the Raiders. The team has announced that only 1,200 club seats remain.
