Evening AFC West news and notes

The Oakland Tribune has a transcript of Tom Cable’s press briefing Monday. Cable explains why he is waiting to Wednesday to announce whether JaMarcus Russell will remain the starting quarterback.

  • There are rumors connecting the Chiefs and New Orleans running back Reggie Bush should he become available in 2010. The Chiefs will likely look for running back in the offseason. Because Jamaal Charles is a speedster, I’d expect the Chiefs to look for a bigger back.

  • It looks like San Diego right tackle Jeromey Clary has made progress from an ankle injury that caused his to leave Sunday’s win over the Eagles. Clary is on pace to play Sunday at Denver.

  • Chargers coach Norv Turner told reporters Monday he was aware prior to the game that LaTorsha Tomlinson, the wife of Chargers star running back LaDainian Tomlinson, left a gift-wrapped positive pregnancy test in the locker of his husband for him to open. Tomlinson was in tears after the game when he told media members of his gift. It will be the Tomlinson’s first child. The couple suffered a miscarriage four years ago.
