2009 Week 3 Recap: Miami Dolphins at San Diego Chargers

Chris J. NelsonSenior Writer ISeptember 28, 2009

When the Miami Dolphins began the 2008 season 0-2, it was in Week Three they broke out with a huge win against the New England Patriots and eventually turned their season around.

Things did not go that way this time around, as the Dolphins fell to 0-3 with an ugly 23-13 loss to the San Diego Chargers.

The Dolphins were hit hard beyond the game as well, with ESPN's Chris Mortensen reporting today that quarterback Chad Pennngton is likely to miss the rest of the season with a torn capsule in his throwing shoulder.

With Pennington quite possibly out of the picture, second-year quarterback Chad Henne will take the reins for the Dolphins and try and right the ship next week against the Buffalo Bills.

Until then, here is my video recap of the Dolphins' loss to the Chargers:
