Ladainian Tomlinson did not practice and wore a protective boot on his right ankle yesterday.
He said he holds out hope he will play Sunday while also acknowledging it is possible he will miss just his second regular season start in eight-plus seasons.
"It’s not anything that is going to keep me out for a long time," Tomlinson said. "We'll just wait and see how it plays out ... I’m taking it day by day. It is a sprain and that’s all it is."
While Tomlinson has finished the past two postseasons on the sideline die to knee and groin injuries, he has never missed a regular-season game due to injury. He was held out of the 2004 season finale by Marty Schottenheimer because the Chargers had already clinched homefield for the wild card playoff game that season.
