Report: Two Chargers CBs hurt
ESPN.com news services
The San Diego Chargers escaped Oakland with a win Monday night but the team's depth at cornerback might have taken a hit.
Starting cornerback Quentin Jammer broke his hand in the fourth quarter, sources told U-T San Diego, leaving his status uncertain for Sunday's Week 2 game against the Tennessee Titans. The newspaper also reported that slot cornerback Shareece Wright sprained his ankle on the opening kickoff.
The severity of Wright's injury will be determined based on a pending second opinion but the newspaper reported that surgery is unlikely to be required.
The Chargers will submit an injury report after they complete practice later Wednesday.
Marcus Gilchrist replaced Wright at the slot cornerback position but later had to move to the outside due to Jammer's injury. By the end of Monday's game against the Raiders, safety Eric Weddle was forced to play slot corner due to the injuries.
"Gilchrist came in and did a good job, and then when Jammer got hurt for a while, we actually put Weddle down there in the slot, and he played really well," Turner said Tuesday, according to the newspaper.
