Oakland receiver Chaz Schilens had to leave practice because of soreness in his foot. He was set to play Sunday against the Jets for the first time in nine weeks. Now, his status is less clear.
San Diego linebacker Kevin Burnett is listed as doubtful to play Sunday at Kansas City with an ankle injury he suffered Monday night. He didn’t practice all week. San Diego cornerback Antonio Cromartie is listed as questionable with a knee injury. He practiced on a limited basis Friday. Running back LaDainian Tomlinson practiced fully Friday after missing Thursday’s practice with an illness. He is listed as probable.
Kansas City left tackle Branden Albert is listed as questionable with an ankle injury. He practiced on a limited basis all week after missing Sunday’s game at Washington.
San Diego rookie linebacker Larry English was fined $7,500 for a horse-collar tackle against Denver on Monday night. English was penalized on the play. On the bright side, English is starting to play very well for the Chargers.
The Missouri General Assembly will honor the late Lamar Hunt by naming a stretch of I-435 in his honor. The designation will be recognized in a pregame ceremony prior to Sunday’s game.
