The San Diego Chargers will hobble into Arrowhead Stadium tomorrow night.
Shaun Phillips and Kris Dielman will be on the sidelines during the game. Phillips, Pro Bowl OLB, has been battling a foot injury all week. San Diego just lost OLB Larry English for the season as well. This is the second straight year he has been put on the IR.
Dielman, who is another Pro Bowl player, was concussed in last weeks game against the Jets. On the plane ride home, Dielman had a seizure. He has not been medically cleared, and will not play this game and maybe not the next either. To top it all off, Mike Tolbert will probably not play either.
So when I say they're "hobbling" into this game, I'm not exaggerating. The Charger's defense has been shaky so far this season, and with three defensive starters on IR, I wouldn't doubt it. Injuries are apart of the game, and San Diego needs to get through them.
Coming off of an embarrassing loss to the Jets, the Chargers will be looking to get back into their groove and take control of the AFC West. In order to do so, here are three players that need to step up during the game.
