With about twenty minutes left in this particular practice session, Weddle, along with wide receiver Buster Davis went up in the air for a jump ball. Not unusual since Davis has been getting reps with the first offense because Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd have yet to sign their tenders. This time, though, Weddle came in too fast and the collision ended with Davis coming up woozy. (Meaning he now needs to undergo a battery of concussion tests. Fun…)
Head Coach, Norv Turner, played the incident off as an accident and said that the injury was not serious. However, center Nick Hardwick seemed to see something that nobody else did, as he immediately ran to confront Weddle before being restrained by his team-mates.
Some people don’t seem surprised that happened. A similar incident happened last year where Weddle collided with fellow defender Quentin Jammer in a pre-season practice that if it was any worse, it could have cost Jammer some time on the field.
