The Chargers have announced enough tickets have been sold to lift the television blackout for Sunday’s home game against Kansas City.
As expected, Kansas City first-round pick, receiver Jonathan Baldwin, is out for the third straight game with a thumb injury that he reportedly hurt in an August fight with teammate Thomas Jones. Baldwin could be on the way back soon. He practiced on a limited basis all week.
It will be fun to see Oakland use speedster rookies Taiwan Jones and Denarius Moore in the return game. As expected, though, it looks like speedy receiver Jacoby Ford will miss his second straight game with a hamstring injury.
The Raiders finally get some love by ESPN’s panel of experts in Week 3. The Broncos and Chiefs? Not so much.
San Diego safety Eric Weddle was reportedly fined $15,000 for a hit at New England on tight end Rob Gronkowski. Teammate Antonio Garay was also fined the same amount on a hit on Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady.
