As expected, the Chargers think LaDainian Tomlinson has a strong chance of playing Sunday at Pittsburgh for the first time since opening day. He is recovering from an ankle injury.
Denver guard Ben Hamilton did not practice Thursday because of a hamstring injury. He didn’t practice Wednesday, either, and could be in jeopardy of missing the Dallas game on Sunday. Tackle Ryan Harris did practice some Thursday after sitting out Wednesday with a shoulder injury.
Interestingly, San Diego worked out punter Ricky Schmitt. Regular punter Mike Scifres was limited both Wednesday and Thursday with a groin injury. The Chargers need Scifres against Pittsburgh. He is a major weapon in the battle for the field position.
