NFL instructs refs to be alert to concussion signs - Chris Mortensen
The NFL will instruct game officials to be more alert to concussion symptoms this week in the wake of the head trauma and subsequent seizure suffered by San Diego Chargers guard Kris Dielman on Oct. 23.

Mr. Rodgers returning to his offseason neighborhood - Chris Jenkins
In trying to put some of Aaron Rodgers’ extraordinary passing statistics into perspective – or just bring them back into the realm of belief – the Packers’ weekly press release drew a comparison between Rodgers and all other NFL quarterbacks since he became the club's starter in 2008. He was No. 1, 2 or 3 in passing yards, passing touchdowns, passer rating, yards per attempt, pass plays of 25 yards or more and rushing touchdowns.

Injury cloud hovers over brutal stretch of schedule - Kevin Acee
With the undefeated Green Bay Packers coming to town Sunday and a game against the always-bruising Oakland Raiders four days after that, the already-staggered Chargers were without nine players at practice Wednesday.

Mishandled snap hid signs Rivers snapping out of funk - Kevin Acee
But in the ongoing effort to deduce the direction in which Rivers is moving, it must be pointed out that against the Chiefs -- in between his starting the game 2-for-8 for 25 yards with two interceptions and the botched snap with a minute left in regulation -- there were the greatest signs this season that Rivers is still the player the Chargers have counted on for so long and need him to be again.

Hardwick delivers message - Kevin Acee
Chargers center Nick Hardwick addressed teammates before Wednesday’s practice, imploring them to re-focus immediately because the season is a long way from over and the Green Bay Packers are coming to town. While it may have been something one of the team’s captains needed to do, it was not much different from the reminder Philip Rivers gave the team a week earlier following the Chargers loss to the New York Jets.

Conference call: Rodgers and McCarthy -
Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Head Coach Mike McCarthy speak to the San Diego media in advance of Sunday's 1:15 p.m. kickoff at Qualcomm Stadium.
