Marcus McNeill out with stinger

SAN DIEGO -- San Diego standout left tackle Marcus McNeill was taken off the field on a cart midway through the first quarter. The team announced he has a stinger, and said he was doubtful to return.

McNeill collided with Oakland linebacker Aaron Curry. He was down in a heap, but he was leaning up and seemed alert on the cart.

He is being replaced by Brandyn Dombrowski.
