If there is good news for the Chargers, it is that they were already preparing to welcome Nick Hardwick back to practice in his latest attempt at a return to the lineup. A team source said Hardwick is expected to play Friday at Tennessee.
Hardwick hasn’t played since tearing ligaments in his ankle in the season opener. He hasn’t practiced in two weeks after suffering a setback in early December.
— Mruczkowski’s season appears to be finished Mooch is gone for the year, unfortunately. Hardwick should be back on Friday, as should Jammer. Phillips is fine, even though he was knocked out temporarily in the 3rd quarter.
