SAN DIEGO (AP) -- LaDainian Tomlinson is one of three San Diego Chargers who have been ruled out of Sunday's home opener against the Baltimore Ravens.
The star running back, who sprained his right ankle in Monday night's 24-20 win at Oakland, will miss just the second game of his brilliant career due to injury. The first was in January when a groin injury kept him out of San Diego's playoff loss to the eventual Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers.
Also out are center Nick Hardwick (ankle) and defensive end Travis Johnson (groin). Right guard Louis Vasquez (knee) could also be sidelined, along with linebacker Antwan Applewhite (hamstring) and defensive tackle Jamal Williams (elbow). All three are listed as questionable for Sunday.
