I can't find anything substantial I guess that is bad news I was hoping at the least Hardwick would be done for the year

tsk tsk Bad mojo!

But yeah, I've been looking and haven't seen anything. If it was bad you'd usually hear by now.

Charger fans said he was in a boot after the game and a few them thought he would be put on injured reserve.

Hope? Maybe you should hope for some personal development.

In today's presser, Norv had mentioned something about them practicing in the next day or so. I thought that seemed a bit optimistic, but nothing else has come out.

SAN DIEGO - The San Diego Chargers go into their home opener against Baltimore with concerns on the offensive line after center Nick Hardwick and rookie right guard Louis Vasquez were hurt in Monday night's win at Oakland.

Hardwick sprained his left ankle and Vasquez sprained a knee in the 24-20 comeback win, the Chargers' 12th straight against their biggest rival. Running back LaDainian Tomlinson also sprained an ankle.

Coach Norv Turner said Tuesday that Hardwick, Vasquez and Tomlinson aren't expected to practice Wednesday as the Chargers begin preparing for the Ravens.

The Chargers were down to five healthy offensive linemen Monday night, which forced left tackle Marcus McNeill to stay in the game after he rolled an ankle. Under normal circumstances he would have come out, Turner said.

Turner said that when McNeill was on the ground, tight end Antonio Gates told him: "What are you doing, man? Get up, we've got enough of this. Someone's got to play now."

Hardwick, a Pro Bowler in 2006, said in a text message that he felt "good," but declined to say if he'll be able to play against the Ravens.

Vasquez went out first, and fifth-year pro Scott "Mooch" Mruczkowski replaced him. After Hardwick went out, Mruczkowski moved to center and Brandyn Dombrowski, a backup tackle playing in his first regular-season game, took over at right guard.

It was Mruczkowski's first regular-season action at center.

"I thought I played solid," he said in a text message.

"It is a concern, but the exciting thing to me is, we've talked about this all along, that every guy needs to be ready to play," Turner said. "I can't say enough about what Mooch did at center, you know, what Brandyn Dombrowski did at right guard, to go in and do the things he did, that's tough.

"We are fortunate to have depth. Some of it is very, very young depth and they are going to learn as they go through it."

Hardwick was taken off the field on a cart.

"I had real concerns after the game on Nick. Those concerns aren't as great right now," Turner said.

lol at the notion that football is controlled by any kind of Karma.

If so then I doubt Steelers would win so much. I know a couple diehard Steeler fans that wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire.

2 of the most selfish people I know. Both of them sent me funny pics of Al Wilson in my email after he had his career ended by a bad injury. They since went on to enjoy there teams winning SUperbowls.

Nope no such thing as Karma in football.

Plus he said I will be fine, I am emotionaly strong.

Like saying he wasnt ok physically, but will be mentally. SOunds like he could have a serious injury and already be prepared for the grueling comeback.

Actually, I heard both Hardwick and Vasquez both have "lower extremity" injuries...

I demand this deteriorates into a heated debate of what constitutes a sprain vs a strain.

Kellen Winslow Jr. can attest that those are no joke. ;D
