Charger lineman Mark Rodenhauser, who had arthroscopic surgery on his injured left knee Tuesday, had ligament damage that will set his recovery time back to four to six weeks, the Chargers said Tuesday. Rodenhauser was injured in Sunday’s 17-14 victory over Seattle.
Rodenhauser, a fourth-year center who is the team’s snapper on kicks and punts, will be placed on injured reserve. Coach Dan Henning said the Chargers would look at several replacement candidates, including Mark Walczak, who played for the Chargers in 1989, and David Harbour, whom Henning coached as an assistant with the Washington Redskins. Both are tight ends with long snapping experience.
