The Chargers’ website is reporting that the team has suspended David Boston for one game for “conduct detrimental to the team.” Boston will not practice with the team and will not be paid for Sunday’s game in Oakland. “This one-game suspension is the result of a pattern of conduct in which David failed to comply with team policy,” head coach Marty Schottenheimer explained. “This series of recent incidents—including some in which David has missed or been late to mandatory team activities—needed to be addressed.”
The suspension leaves the Chargers perilously thin at wide receiver. Reche Caldwell is out with a dislocated wrist. Tim Dwight sprained his MCL last week and missed Wednesday’s practice. The team is left with Eric Parker, who scored in each of the first two games, and Kassim Osgood, who may start if Dwight’s knee does not feel better by Sunday. Playing without Boston also hurts Drew Brees and LaDainian Tomlinson. This team is a mess right now.
Can it get any worse down there !
