The San Diego Chargers have more to worry about than individual milestones. The 4-6 Chargers are entering a must-win situation Sunday night against Indianapolis.

But amid the urgency, LaDainian Tomlinson is inching toward a significant personal accomplishment. He is now six catches away from becoming the fifth running back ever to amass 10,000 career rushing yards and catch 500 balls. This is another reason Tomlinson will be a Hall of Fame inductee. Tomlinson may not be having a great season but he is still effective. And if he gets those six catches on Sunday, it will go a long way in helping the Chargers beat the Colts.
