Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden and wide receiver Jacoby Ford missed practice Monday, leaving both questionable for this weekend's game in Minnesota.
Seven Chargers players, including six starters, skipped Monday's light workout. It was the first practice since the Chargers lost to the Oakland Raiders on Thursday night and fell to 4-5.
So now more than ever it is time to get real creative owners. The injuries to QBs such as Matt Schaub and Matt Cassell can very well destroy seasons for guys like Dwayne Bowe and Andre Johnson, once Johnson returns. Related posts:
