Scott Mruczkowski Done for Season; Chargers Sign Player with Equally Difficult Name

Scott Mruczkowski, the Chargers' backup Center thrust into the starting role after Nick Hardwick went down with a knee injury midway through the first game of the season against the Oakland Raiders, has officially been placed on the Injured-Reserve list.  With Nick Hardwick coming back to play this Friday against the Tennessee Titans, the Chargers needed a center to fill the hole vacated by Mruczkowski.

Now that we've all finally gotten a handle on how to pronounce Mruczkowski's name, the Chargers decided to give us another challenge and signed Eric Ghiaciuc as a backup center.

Ghiaciuc, pronounced GUY-UH-CHECK, was drafted in the 5th round of the 2005 draft by the Cincinnati Bengals.  He started 42 games in his 4 seasons with the Bengals.  He was picked up by the Kansas City Chiefs this year as an unrestricted free agent, but was waived by the team before the season started.
