San Diego Chargers place Mike Harris on Injured-Reserve

San Diego Chargers offensive tackle Michael Harris will miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury. It's a disappointing end to a promising season for the young player.

Well said, Mr. Higgins.

I suppose this explains the San Diego Chargers earlier move to sign Mike Remmers off of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad.

The scary thing is that, if the offensive line is (at any point) as banged up as they have been the last few weeks, there's a very real chance of undrafted free agent Nick Becton starting at left tackle. That'd be scarier if this was Norv Turner's offense, but it's still bad news for Philip Rivers and Ryan Mathews.

So much for the Chargers trying to limit injuries by requiring the offensive line to wear knee braces in practice, every starter along the line not named Nick Hardwick has missed at least one of the five regular season games played this year. It's only going to get worse from here.
