SAN DIEGO (AP) - NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth saw something wrong with San Diego left tackle Jared Gaither and predicted that New Orleans Saints defensive end Martez Wilson would sack Philip Rivers to end Monday night's game.
Chargers coach Norv Turner wasn't alerted to Gaither's injury, either by the player himself or an assistant coach. Sure enough, with the Chargers desperately trying for the tying touchdown in the final seconds, Wilson blew past the hobbled Gaither on Rivers' blind side for the strip-sack and recovered the fumble to preserve the Saints' 31-24 victory.
Says Turner: ``It wasn't brought to my attention.''
Gaither missed most of training camp and the first three games with back spasms. Turner says Gaither injured his groin on the third-to-last play. The coach says it's not torn and Gather has a chance to practice this week and play in Monday night's home game against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.
