Hardwick leaves game for Chargers

Chargers C Nick Hardwick suffered an apparent head or neck injury and was carted off the field (video) during the third quarter of the game against the Chiefs. Hardwick was injured while attempting to go low for a block on a short pass play and had his head and neck snapped to the side off the leg of a defender. He was down on the field for several minutes, but he was responsive to trainers and wasn’t immobilized before getting on the cart. Hardwick was replaced by backup Jeremy Newberry.

Two plays earlier, on the same drive, Chargers WR Chris Chambers also suffered what looked to be a head or neck injury when he was hit by two Chiefs defenders on a reception over the middle. Chambers’ injury didn’t appear serious, and he was able to leave the field under his own power.
