Evening AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
The Chargers’ preseason opener against Green Bay on Thursday will not be blacked out on local television. The game will be broadcast by ESPN.
The Broncos placed injured running back Mario Fannin on injured reserve. He suffered an Achilles injury Saturday in the team’s scrimmage. The 2011 undrafted free agent missed all of last season with a torn ACL. Talk about tough luck for a talented player.
Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel opened his news briefing Monday by passing condolences along to Philadelphia coach Andy Reid. His son, Garrett, died Sunday morning.
The Denver Post corrected a story about the suspension of tight end Virgil Green being reduced. Green’s four-game suspension will stand.
Oakland defensive tackle Richard Seymour missed practice Monday with a knee injury. Oakland punter Shane Lechler is at least a week away from returning from a knee injury.
