Chargers patchy OL will try to build on solid game - Tom Krasovic

O-Line Out to Prove Last Week was No Fluke - Ricky Henne
Head coach Norv Turner announced today the same five players will most likely start on Sunday when he addressed Mike Harris’ injury situation.

"It’s scary when he’s running with the ball in his hands," said Corey Liuget. "He’s dangerous. You’ve got to definitely hit him every time. Even when he doesn’t have the ball if he’s gotten rid of it in the option, we’ve still got to hit him. Because if you let up thinking he got rid of it you’ll get beat. So we’ve got to hit him hard and hit him in the mouth."

Chargers still banged up on O-line - Bill Williamson

The Steelers ran nine times for 12 yards, and Williams recorded stops on two of those rushes. His hit on Roethlisberger with 7:43 left in the second quarter forced an incompletion and a Pittsburgh punt.
