Chargers LT Jared Gaither Likely Will Not Play on Monday Night


It sounds like the San Diego Chargers will be missing their best offensive lineman on Monday Night against the Denver Broncos. Jared Gaither has not practiced all week and is listed as doubtful on the injury report. He expressed confidence earlier in the week, but there are a couple of sources that are saying that he will not play on Monday (North County Times).

The undrafted rookie Mike Harris will have to step in with the absence to Gaither. Harris started the first 3 games of the season and had mixed results. He played well on the season opener on Monday Night against the Oakland Raiders. He will need a similar performance this Monday.

Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil are some of the best pass rushers in the league. Norv Turner better find a way to slow them down. We could see more and more passes to Ryan Mathews in this game.

Missing Gaither on Monday hurts, but it is not something that cannot be overcome.
