Chargers' Page will miss second straight game with sprained ankle

SAN DIEGO -- Chargers right tackle Solomon Page was limited in practice Friday with a sprained left ankle and will miss his second straight game.

Phil Bogle, an undrafted rookie out of New Haven, will make his second NFL start as San Diego again will have to go with a makeshift offensive line in seeking their first victory on Sunday, when they face the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Page had been switched from right guard, to replace veteran Vaughn Parker, who blew out his left knee against the Ravens on Sept. 21.

"I still can't plant on it," Page said of his ankle.

At Page's old spot at right guard, Bob Hallen will fill in. Hallen was a starter at left guard for the majority of the season, before being benched in favor of current starter Kelvin Garmon.

Eric Parker (ear infection) and Tim Dwight (sprained right knee) were able to practice and will play on Sunday. Parker also will handle the punt-return chores, while Dwight will be restricted to catching passes, and not returning kickoffs.

The Chargers are trying to snap an eight-game losing streak, which dates to last year. Overall, the Chargers have dropped 11 of their past 13 games, after streaking to a 6-1 mark last year.

The game matches two of the NFL's four winless teams against each other, with both squads falling in all four of their contests. With the 0-4 Jets having a bye, and the 0-3 Bears already having their week off, they'll be but one 0-5 team come Sunday evening.
