Boston Suspended by Chargers

Could it be? The San Diego Chargers suspended wide receiver David Boston for one game on Thursday. He will miss this weekend's pivotal game against the Raiders.<br><br> The Bolts may be forced, for the first time in history, to go with an all undrafted lineup at wideout.

The San Diego Chargers suspended $47 million wide receiver David Boston for one game Thursday for conduct detrimental to the team.

Boston will not practice with the team and will not play in the club's game Sunday at Oakland, according to a statement released by the team. He will forfeit his pay for that game.

"This one-game suspension is the result of a pattern of conduct in which David failed to comply with team policy," Chargers coach Marty Schottenheimer said. "This series of recent incidents — including some in which David has missed or been late to mandatory team activities — needed to be addressed."

The problem escalted when Boston reportedly got into a war of words with strength and conditioning coach Dave Redding. Boston was fined for not making the suggested weight and is said to have crumpled up the fine and throw it back at Redding. The two have been at odds for quite some time.

With Tim Dwight questionable, the Chargers may be forced to go with undrafted free agents Eric Parker and Kassim Osgood as their starters. Grant Mattos and Dondre Gilliam would then come off the bench. Both are undrafted free agents as well. It may be the first time in history that an entire wide receiving unit is comprised of non-drafted players.
