Chargers LT Marcus McNeill has stinger

San Diego Chargers left tackle Marcus McNeill has been taken off

the field on a cart with a stinger in his neck in the first quarter

of Thursday night’s game against the Oakland Raiders.

McNeill was hurt during a short run by Ryan Mathews. He was

replaced by Brandyn Dombrowski.

The Chargers were already thin on the left side of the line. Pro

Bowl guard Kris Dielman is missing his third straight game with a

concussion.

Oakland wide receiver Jacoby Ford hurt a foot at the end of a

41-yard reception late in the first quarter and was questionable to

return.
