“In my Heart, I Know I’ll Play” says Meachem

Robert Meachem missed Thursday night’s game with a hamstring injury suffered during Tuesday’s practice.  Ricky Henne of Chargers.com spoke with the speedy wide receiver earlier this afternoon about his prognosis for playing this week in Tampa Bay.  This is what he had to say.

“I’m getting better each and every day.  It’s just one of those things.  It’s the NFL.  I’ll have to see how it feels Wednesday.  But I don’t have a choice but to get better.  It will get better. I’m not going to guess and say I think I’m going to play.  In my heart, I know I’m going to play.  I’ll be ready. I just need my body to respond to what my heart is saying.”

Meachem, needs to get healthy soon as new players are stepping up their game to win the starting spot on the field. Eddie Royal, is another player that has been battling injury issues and did not attend the Kansas City game. This opened the door for two players who were out on the street until just two short weeks ago in former Charger Seyi Ajirotutu and former St. Louis Rams pass catcher Danario Alexander. BoltHype columnist Anthony Blake wrote a great column earlier today on those issues.
