Examining key injury situations

By Bill Williamson

A look at some key injury developments in the AFC West:

It’s no surprise the Chargers put standout guard Kris Dielman on the injured reserve after he suffered a serious concussion Oct. 23 at the New York Jets.

There was initially hope Dielman would be able to return this season, but he is still dealing with issues form the concussion. Dielman suffered a grand mal seizure near the end of the team's charter flight from a game against the Jets.

One of the reason why Dielman was put on the injured reserve is he is several weeks from returning, and battered San Diego needs help. The San Diego Union Tribune reported the team signed veteran Ike Ndukwe. The Chargers signed Tony Moll on Tuesday. The newspaper reports Moll could start at Dielman’s spot Sunday because his replacement, Tyronne Green, is also dealing with an injury.
