AFC West: Diyral Briggs

Evening AFC West notes

October, 19, 2010
The San Diego Chargers announced they need to sell just more than 2,000 additional seats to sell out Sunday against New England. The team had said it expected the game to be a sellout and it still easily can be. The Chargers’ first two home games have been blacked out on local television because they were not sell outs. Previously, the Chargers sold out 48 straight games.

The team’s 2-4 record isn’t helping its ticket-selling cause. Still, with so few tickets to be sold, it’d be a surprise if this game was blacked out.

Denver signed linebacker Diyral Briggs from the practice squad and it put receiver Matt Willis on the injured reserve. Receiver Eron Riley was signed to the practice squad.

There is a chance the Kansas City Chiefs could face a newly signed No. 3 quarterback Sunday when they host Jacksonville. That would be quite a drop off from their previous two opposing quarterbacks – Peyton Manning and Matt Schaub.

Holdout San Diego receiver Vincent Jackson reportedly believes the Chargers were “unethical” for not trading him Wednesday. This is just another sign that Jackson will likely never play for the Chargers again.
  • Denver starting cornerbacks Champ Bailey (foot) and Andre Goodman (thigh) both did not practice Wednesday. This is not the week to be missing your starting cornerbacks: Peyton Manning and Indianapolis are coming to town Sunday. Denver offensive linemen Ryan Harris and Chris Kuper were back at practice after missing Sunday’s win over Seattle.
  • San Diego receivers Malcom Floyd (leg) and running back Ryan Mathews (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. However, Mathews is expects to play Sunday at Seattle.
  • Kansas City defensive end Tyson Jackson did not practice Wednesday. He didn’t play in Week 2 because of the injury.
