Positions of Concern:
-The Quentin Jammer injury is one of massive concern, he appeared to be holding his knee/leg. Alongside Shaun Phillips, he remains a leader of the defense. The one bright spot here is Gilchrist played about as well as you can in his spot as a rookie. The first play after Jammer left the field, Cassel found Bowe for a touchdown over Cason.
-Bob Sanders did not dress for week 3. A fear of many going into the season, his fragile complexion seems to have reared its ugly head. Steve Gregory, who played well Sunday and returning free agent Paul Oliver should see extended time until this glass house playmaker returns.
-The Liuget and Cesaire injuries piled on top of Castillo’s broken leg, have hampered the Chargers at defensive line. Without quick recoveries, a huge concern has to be the defensive line play. Garay returned after a couple of plays on the sideline.
-Gates and his foot. Backup Randy McMichael has played well other than an important 3rd down drop last week. You can’t replace a healthy Antonio Gates. Healthy is the key word here, and Gates is clearly struggling. At this point you have to move forward with McMichael and Sperry as your main targets.
