 SAN DIEGO (AP) -Chargers cornerback Quentin Jammer will miss Sunday night's home game against the Indianapolis Colts because of a hamstring injury, meaning Antonio Cromartie will make his first pro start.
Cromartie has scored three touchdowns in the past two games, including setting an NFL record by returning a missed field goal 109 yards for a touchdown in a 35-17 loss at Minnesota last Sunday. In a 35-10 win against Houston two weeks ago, he scored on a 70-yard interception return and when he recovered an errant punt snap in the end zone.
Jammer injured his hamstring against Houston on Oct. 28 and aggravated it against the Vikings.
The team listed him as doubtful on Friday's injury report, but the cornerback said he won't be in uniform.
``I'm going to have to be smart about the injury,'' Jammer said. ``I feel I could probably go but I felt like I could go last week and it ended up catching again and set me down for another week. I don't want that to keep happening.
``I'd rather just go ahead and get ready for Jacksonville than risk an injury that's going to put me out for two, three, maybe seven weeks.''
Jammer, a six-year veteran, has started 72 consecutive regular-season games dating to the 2003 season opener.
``I don't really think about streaks of games,'' Jammer said. ``The thing that keeps me going is my love for this game. That's the only thing that kept me playing injured and playing through some pain. I just love to be out there.''
Backup linebacker Marques Harris (toe) was listed as questionable after missing all three practices this week. Pro Bowl center Nick Hardwick (foot) will miss his third consecutive game.
Also, Jacques Cesaire will start in place of defensive end Luis Castillo, who underwent ankle surgery on Monday. Castillo will miss at least six weeks.
