Injury Update

The Chargers are reporting only one injury for this coming week against the Jets. Coming off the bye week they were able to heal up and there is a sense of excitement with some of the players who will be back this week. The Jets have a few injuries to report including one that happened today, and its extent is unknown.

"I'm 94.6 percent, so I'll be good. I'll work it out during the week," said Pro Bowl defensive end Marcellus Wiley. "My left side is healed, so that's cool. But my right side, I have a little issue with. But it's not enough to talk about so I don't know why I'm bringing it up. I'll be ready for Sunday."

The only player not to practice for the Bolts was rookie tight end Josh Norman and he is listed as questionable for Sunday's game. Stephen Alexander will return and it will give the Chargers two healthy tight ends, after going a week with only rookie Justin Peelle.

Of course Rodney Harrison will miss the game after being suspended by the NFL and losing his appeal for a hit on Jerry Rice in Oakland on Oct. 20th.

For the Jets, linebacker Mo Lewis sprained his left ankle in a 7-on-7 drill and left practice. The extent of the injury is not known and it is up in the air on whether he will play Sunday. Jason Glenn and James Darling will replace him if he cannot go.

Offensive tackle Kareem McKenzie did not practice today, resting a sprained ankle. Jumbo Elliot would take his place on the line, with the possibility of some shuffling, with Jason Fabini shifting over to the right side and Jumbo taking the left side.

Defensive tackle Jason Ferguson also sat out practice with a bruised left shoulder. He is listed as questionable on the injury report and would be replaced by Giradie Mercer if he cannot go.

Running back Curtis Martin was also held out of practice as the team did not want him to practice on the artificial turf of the bubble at the Jets practice facility.
