During Wednesday's presser, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said Pouncey will have neck surgery and added he did not know if the injury was career-ending.
During the Chargers' Week 5 loss to the Broncos, Pouncey injured his neck during the second half and did not return -- and now he won't for quite some time. Following his departure, Dan Feeney filled in at center, while Forrest Lamp was inserted at left guard. The team's starting left tackle, Okung, has yet to play this season.
With the addition of Pouncey, the Chargers have six projected starters out with injuries, which includes James (foot), Okung (pulmonary embolism), safety Adrian Phillips (forearm), Henry (knee) and Ingram (hamstring). Kicker Mike Badgley (groin) has also been missing for some time. On a positive note, Henry was back at practice in a limited role.
