The big news here is that Jackson should be ready to play extensively Sunday against Jacksonville. The No. 3 overall pick in 2009 hasn’t played since Week 1. Jackson played well in the game against San Diego after having a slow rookie season. His presence should make an improving defense stronger.
San Diego will get to see the Chargers play on Sunday. At 2-4, the city may not be all that thrilled to do so, however. With that said, the team sold enough tickets for the game to be declared a sellout by Thursday’s deadline. The two previous games in San Diego this season have been blacked out. Before this season, San Diego sold out 48 straight home games. However, their current steak may not last long. The team announced there are 12,000 seats available for the Oct. 31 home game against Tennessee. If the Chargers lose to the Patriots, there will likely be little chance that game will be sold out.
It is being reported out of Kansas City that Chiefs defensive lineman Shaun Smith won his appeal on a $10,000 fine by the NFL. He was fined for grabbing the groin area of San Francisco tackle Anthony Davis in Week 3.
Joining other teams, the Broncos voted to de-certify the union in case there is a lockout.
