COMMENTARY | The San Diego Chargers have been on a steady decline since the early playoff exit and disappointment that followed a stellar 13-3 season under head coach Norv Turner in 2009.

The back problems continue to linger for San Diego Chargers left tackle Jared Gaither, who has been ruled out of the team’s season opener Sept. 10 against the Oakland Raiders.

The team got down to the NFL mandated 53-man maximum on Friday evening, but the roster they announced on Friday won’t be what they play with on Sept. 10 against the Oakland Raiders.
