SAN DIEGO -- Here are some pre-game news and notes prior to the Falcons-Chargers game:

It is 68 degrees and sunny in San Diego.

San Diego's Scott Mruczkowski will start at left guard for Kris Dielman. He has the flu.

San Diego rookie running back Jacob Hester will start at fullback for Mike Tolbert. He has a shoulder injury.

San Diego defensive lineman Luis Castillo is expected back in the starting lineup. He missed last week's game with a groin injury.

Atlanta's Todd Weiner will start at left tackle for the injured Sam Baker.

Former San Diego running back Michael Turner, who signed with Atlanta as a free agent in the offseason, was cheered by San Diego fans in pre-game warm-ups.
