Norv Turner Says Talk Of Placing Chargers OT Jared Gaither On IR Is 'Premature'
Saturday made it six weeks since left tackle Jared Gaither suffered back spasms in the Chargers weight room.
Asked whether the possibility can be eliminated that Gaither's injury will lead to his placement on season-ending injured reserve, coach Norv Turner said that the option isn't something the team is considering at this time.
"I think that's way premature," Turner said. "Obviously, we have a guy we know it's been, what, (six) weeks now, that anything is a possibility. But I think that's premature."
The Chargers will be without Gaither for Monday night's season opener against the Raiders, and thus far, there's no reason to expect the arrangement not to continue into the next week.
There have been no major breakthroughs in his recovery. At the start of practices, he hasn't worked out on team rehab field since Aug. 27.
"It's very slow progress," Turner said. "He's continuing to be evaluated, so that's where he is now."
