“Sources said Jammer broke his hand. It is unknown how it will affect his Week 2 status. Jammer has missed just two games and three starts since 2003,” Gehlken reported.
The Chargers also lost cornerback Shareece Wright to a sprained ankle in the same night.
“Wright sprained his ankle, a source said, and its severity is unclear with a second opinion forthcoming. Surgery is not expected to be required based on the preliminary evaluation,’ reported Gehlken.

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.

The Chargers barely beat an overrated Raiders team that was shooting themselves in the foot all night. Yep, it’s the same old early season Chargers. That game reminds me of their close early season wins against bad teams last year, Miami, Denver, Minnesota, and Kansas City, all by 10 or fewer points. Playing a real team next week in the Titans, they might not find themselves so...
According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Chargers left tackle Jared Gaither will likely miss this week’s game and could end up being done for the season at some point.
“Indications from inside the organization are that his back malady will keep him out of at least next week’s home against the Tennessee Titans,” wrote the Tribune.
The Chargers are looking on the open market for...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews (clavicle) and tight end Antonio Gates (ribs), missed practice on Wednesday.
No practice today for Chargers RB Ryan Mathews with his clavicle nor TE Antonio Gates with his ribs.

According to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Chargers tight end Antonio Gates (ribs) did not practice Wednesday.Fantasy Spin:Gates caught four passes for 43 yards in the team's opener Monday night, but he injured his ribs during the game.

The beachfront home where former NFL linebacker Junior Seau killed himself has been sold for nearly $2 million.
The North County Times reports (bit.ly/RTzS2g) the two-story, three-bedroom home in Oceanside was recently sold for $1.97 million. It was listed in late July for almost $2.3 million.
Seau bought the house for $3.2 million in 2005.

Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers capitalized on mistakes instead of making them for a change. Rivers threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Malcom Floyd and Nate Kaeding kicked five field goals to spoil Dennis Allen's debut as Oakland coach by beating the Raiders 22-14 on Monday night.
Despite the new regime, it's the same old Raiders as mistakes lead to home loss against Phillip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers.
The final contest of Week 1, surprisingly, will be between the teams expected to fight for 3rd and 4th in the AFC North. Both teams have high ceilings but expectations have been reined in for seemingly yearly disappointment. It must be tough, in 2012, to be a fan of either of these teams. Both are mediocre at best with enough knuckleheads on the sidelines to drive you nuts.
The Chargers aim to do something they have never done in the Norv Turner era: start a season 2-0. The challenge seems doable -- all it entails is a home win over a mediocre Tennessee Titans squad -- but San Diego must overcome some injuries and rediscover its offensive rhythm to make it happen.
The late Monday night game showcasing the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers was probably missed by fans of either team who reside on the East Coast as the contest ended after one in the morning. That was probably for the best as Oakland lost what looked to be a battle of ineptitude 22-14.Early risers might have been fooled initially by the final score into thinking it was...
