San Diego Chargers LB Thomas Keiser was arrested on Sunday on assault and battery charges, per UT San Diego. The details on the incident have not been released, but bail was set at $8000.The team is aware of the situation and have not commented on it yet. Keiser likely will still be available to play on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Keiser has stepped in as the pass rushing linebacker on the roster and has come through with 4 1/2 sacks this season and he also came up with that big interception against Peyton Manning. He has come up with some big plays this season after starting off the year on the practice squad. He was brought up after Dwight Freeney went down with an injury and helped provide a little spark to the defense.

The defense has not had many options pass rushing the quarterback this season. When Dwight Freeney went down, we lost our best pass rusher. Keiser has helped add some pass rushing abilities, but it still is an area that is really lacking. Keiser helps fill that void a little.
