San Diego Chargers Place G/T Brandyn Dombrowski on Injured-Reserve

OAKLAND, CA - OCTOBER 10: Malcom Floyd #80, Brandyn Dombrowski #62, Kris Dielman #68 and Nick Hardwick #61 of the San Diego Chargers react after Tyvon Branch #33 of the Oakland Raiders picked up a fumble and returned it for a touchdwon in the fourth quarter of their game at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on October 10, 2010 in Oakland, California.

With veterans reporting to Chargers Park yesterday and today to get checked out by the team doctors, it would appear that something is still very wrong with the foot of Brandyn Dombrowski. He missed time in December 2011 and January 2012 with a foot injury.

It's also possible that he seriously injured the foot during practice today, but I don't think they would've pulled the IR trigger on him this quickly. Most likely the doctors don't like the way that the injury has (or hasn't) healed.

Dombrowski has started 15 games over the last three seasons for the San Diego Chargers, playing every position on the offensive line except Center and Left Guard. He was expected to compete with Tyronne Green and Rex Hadnot for the LG position this year.

There are new rules for the Injured-Reserve List and here's a short breakdown of how they could apply here: If the Chargers decide to keep Dombrowski as part of the 53-man roster heading into Week 1, he would be able to rejoin the team after 8 weeks. If he's not on the 53-man roster, he would be ineligible to play at all this season.

UPDATE:

Although the team has not yet put Dombro on IR yet (he just couldn't pass his physical this morning), they're still expected to.
