SAN DIEGO (AP) -Chargers wide receiver Eric Parker underwent toe surgery on Friday and could miss up to 10 weeks.
Parker had a cracked sesamoid bone near his right big toe repaired. The surgery was performed by a foot specialist in Seattle.
Parker injured the toe during a minicamp in June. He had yet to practice in training camp.
``They just felt the best thing for him was to do the surgery,'' Chargers coach Norv Turner said. ``We'll just hope the procedure went well and we get him back as soon as we can.''
Parker, entering his sixth NFL season, is best-known for his double-muff while trying to field a punt in San Diego's 24-21 home playoff loss to New England.
He caught 48 passes for 659 yards and no touchdowns last season. He has 152 receptions during the past three seasons.
