Coming off a key division win over their rivals in Oakland on Monday night, the Chargers had reason to be happy today, even as one of their defensive starters received news that no player wants to hear, with cornerback Quentin Jammer diagnosed as having broken his hand during the contest.
Although the normal course of action to treat such an injury would likely include plenty of rest and little to no exertion on the affected area, it’s possible that Jammer could potentially be able to play in San Diego’s upcoming game at home against the Titans. The decision on his status will likely be game time, and while he could take the field with his hand in a cast, more than likely the Chargers will look elsewhere for coverage in their secondary.
Jammer’s usual backup, Shareece Wright, suffered an injury if his own, hurting his ankle against the Raiders, and may not be able to play this weekend, leaving San Diego shorthanded defensively.
One player that will benefit from the injuries is Tennessee quarterback Jake Locker, as the Titans passing attack will get a much needed boost in squaring off against players with little experience..
