Tomlinson misses practice again

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

LaDainian Tomlinson did not practice for the second consecutive day Thursday due to a turf toe.,

Tomlinson injured the toe against Carolina on opening day. He was hampered by the injury against Denver as he had just 26 yards on 10 carries. Last week, Tomlinson didn't practice Wednesday and Thursday but worked Friday.

Tomlinson is expected to play the visiting New York Jets on "Monday Night Football" but he is likely to be hampered by the injury for the next several weeks.

Meanwhile, it looks like Tomlinson will have one of his better blockers available for the first time this season as left tackle Marcus McNeill practiced fully after being limited Wednesday. McNeill was replaced in the first two weeks by L.J. Shelton. Defensive tackle Jamal Williams also worked out on a limited basis after sitting out Wednesday.
