Head Coach Mike McCarthy was hailed during training camp for his innovative schedule, giving his players extra time off, including three extra full days off on consecutive Wednesdays. McCarthy's thinking was that players would have more time to 'rest' and to 'recover' from nagging injuries. This was supposed to lead to fresher players and eliminate most of the annoying muscle injuries. Like hamstring pulls.
Well, let's stick a fork in that theory.
First, it was Greg Jennings who couldn't go (and still may not be able to this week) because of lingering hamstring issues. And now, James Jones has left practice... because of a right hamstring injury.
Needless to say, if both Jones and Jennings can't go on Sunday, the Chargers will be able to apply the little-used defensive tactic known as "Quadruple coverage" against Donald Driver. (sigh)
