Dielman's season over; another OL signed - Kevin Acee
The team could be down as many as three starters this Sunday in Chicago. In their most recent game, the Chargers were down to their last lineman and even had to insert rookie tackle Stephen Schilling for one snap at right guard.
Teammates will miss Dielman’s presence - Christopher Smith
The Chargers acknowledged Kris Dielman’s significance to the team but vowed to rally with what may be a re-tooled offensive line.
Chat wrap: Michael Bush's future - Bill Williamson
If the Chargers totally clean house, perhaps they will go for a big name to lead the entire operation. But that may be a long shot. I think they would look for another offensive-minded coach to work with QB Philip Rivers.
Playing on might be what kept Dielman from returning to play - Kevin Acee
Ultimately, perhaps in part because he finished that game after being concussed, Dielman was placed on injured reserve Wednesday and will not play again in 2011.
Pleased to Meet You: Week 11, San Diego Chargers - Steven Schweickert
For the Bears, while for once a win won't mean an additional tiebreaker over an NFC team (for once), it still puts them at 7-3 and in very good position to secure a playoff berth. For the Chargers, this game means a lot more in a weak AFC West. Oakland leads the division at 5-4, but every other AFC West team sits at 4-5 and Oakland gets Minnesota then the Bears. If Minnesota beats Oakland, a win for the Chargers ties them for first in the division.
AFC West Tour Begins Against San Diego - Satchel Price
nobody in the AFC West has really played well this season. Most of you have probably heard about the struggles of Philip Rivers by now. The Chargers have lost four straight games. The Denver Broncos are winning games essentially without a real quarterback these days. The Kansas City Chiefs had a nice little winning streak there earlier in the year, but at this point they don't have Matt Cassel and they're bad enough that they lost to Denver last week.
