PRO FOOTBALL DAILY REPORT : AFC : Chargers Lose Means for 2-4 Weeks
The San Diego Chargers will be without running back Natrone Means for two to four weeks because of a strained groin. Means was hurt on the fifth play from scrimmage in Sunday night’s 24-14 loss to Miami when he tried to elude linebacker Bryan Cox after making a catch.
Glen Foley, the New York Jets’ second-year quarterback who was given his first extended action on Sunday, dislocated his right shoulder on the final play of a 20-7 loss to New England and will need arthroscopic surgery. He is done for the year.
Marv Levy returned to the Buffalo Bills’ practice facility in Orchard Park, N.Y., and said, “I’m back and ready to go.” Levy, 70, has been away from the team since Oct. 17, when he had surgery at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo for prostate cancer.
Levy will have to do without starting cornerback Jeff Burris, who is out for the season after he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Linebacker Cornelius Bennett re-injured his hamstring and his status is unknown.
Quarterback Jeff Hostetler, who played most of the Raiders’ 20-17 victory over Cincinnati with a broken bone in his left hand, is expected to play Sunday against the New York Giants.
