SAN DIEGO -- Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson is on the field for warm ups. He seems to be running well. The team expects him to be limited tonight with a lingering turf toe.

He is bouncing up and down and he seems to trying to test the injured toe as much as possible prior to the game. The Chargers are going to let Tomlinson play as long as he can. He wasn't a factor last week in Denver because of the injury. Tomlinson had 26 yards on 10 carries in the Chargers' 39-38 loss.

He was spelled in that game by Darren Sproles, who made a major impact in the rushing, receiving and the return game. Expect San Diego to rely heavily on Sproles tonight against the Jets if Tomlinson is hampered by the toe again.
