Chargers WR Vincent Jackson May Miss Chiefs Game

On Dec. 12 the Kansas City Chiefs will travel to San Diego in what is shaping up to be the game of the year in the AFC West. If both teams win next week, KC will hold a one-game advantage over San Diego entering the game. So, yeah, it's a pretty big game.

From what it sounds like, the Chargers will have to once again be without WR Vincent Jackson when they play the Chiefs. According to NBC's Andrea Kremer, Jackson is expected to miss at least two weeks" with a groin injury. That means he likely won't be available for the Chiefs game that falls under that two-week umbrella.

Jackson's first game this year was Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts. Shortly after the game started the Chargers ruled him out because of the groin injury. Jackson hasn't played at all this year because he didn't sign his restricted free agent tender until the last week of October.

The Chiefs played the Chargers in Week 1 without Jackson but, suffice to say, San Diego has learned to score without him. The Chargers are the league's No. 2 ranked offense and QB Philip Rivers is on pace for a career year.

Still, this is good news for KC. Jackson could have added another weapon for Rivers to slice the Chiefs but apparently that won't be happening. Largely the same team that lined up for the Chargers in Week 1 will be there in Week 14.
