Morning Dump

By Ernie Padaon

We are a couple of days from the weekend and I hope everyone has turned that page and is looking to beat down the cheese heads.

Enjoy your dump:

Philip Rivers put his hands under center and called for the snap, one that would have moved the San Diego Chargers to the brink of victory.

The team was especially thin at skill positions Wednesday when it hit the practice field two days after its physical overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

Offensive lineman Kris Dielman suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter of the October 23 game against the New York Jets. With only 12 minutes remaining in the game, Dielman returned to play despite balance problems. He was not evaluated for a concussion until after the game ended. On the flight back to San Diego, Dielman suffered a grand mal seizure. He is out from play and the NFL announced on November 2 that game officials need to be on the lookout for signs of concussion injuries.

Ten days after San Diego guard Kris Dielman sustained a head injury against the Jets and later suffered a seizure on the team’s flight home from New York, the league’s injury and safety panel issued the directive Wednesday.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers went into their bye week as the league’s only undefeated team, but Rodgers sees room for improvement.

Chargers owner Dean Spanos will help lead Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s fundraising efforts in California, the campaign said Wednesday.
