SAN DIEGO -- As expected, San Diego’s offensive line is a mess.

Starters Marcus McNeill (neck) and Louis Vasquez (ankle) are out for the second straight game. San Diego is also missing guard Kris Dielman, who is out for the year because of a concussion. Backup guard Tyronne Green is also out with a hand injury. Undrafted rookie Steve Schilling and newly signed Tony Moll are expected to start at guard. Brandyn Dombrowski will start for McNeill.

Receiver Malcom Floyd remains out with a hip injury. Rookie Vincent Brown will start for him. Linebacker Shaun Phillips is active for the first time in a month after being out with a foot injury.

Denver’s inactive list doesn’t feature any surprises.

In other AFC West nuggets:

Rookie receiver Denarius Moore (foot) and running back Taiwan Jones (hamstring) are among Oakland’s inactive players against Chicago. Receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is active. He had a neck injury.

ESPN is reporting that Detroit defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh is expected to be suspended at least two games for his actions Thursday against Green Bay. The Lions play at Oakland on Dec. 18 and they host San Diego on Dec. 24.

ESPN is reporting that the agent of receiver Terrell Owens said there is one team that is very interested in signing Owens. I don’t see any natural fits with any of the AFC West teams at this point.
