Vincent Jackson hurts calf in 1st game
INDIANAPOLIS -- San Diego Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson injured a calf in the first quarter of Sunday night's game against the Indianapolis Colts and did not return to the Chargers' 36-14 win.
Jackson was playing for the first time this season after a protracted holdout. He had served a three-game suspension imposed by the team because of the holdout. He did not have a catch before the injury.
Chargers coach Norv Turner said after the game that he did not expect Jackson to miss a lot of time.
Tight end Antonio Gates suited up Sunday night at Indianapolis despite multiple foot injuries.
The Colts scratched six starters for the game -- receiver Austin Collie, running back Joseph Addai, safety Bob Sanders, linebackers Clint Session and Gary Brackett and tight end Brody Eldridge. Indy also deactivated guard Jaimie Thomas and cornerback Justin Tryon.
