Chargers | Kris Dielman’s injury to be reviewed by league

The NFL is looking into the events surrounding a concussion suffered by San Diego Chargers OG Kris Dielman (concussion) in Week 7. NFL vice president Bryan McCarthy said the league is reviewing the injury with the team, medical staff and NFL Players' Association. Dielman was concussed late in the game, after which he struggled to maintain balance. He finished the game despite the head injury and was not assessed until after the loss. The Chargers announced the injury shortly before the team boarded a plane for San Diego. Dielman suffered a grand mal seizure near the end of the team's charter flight, although he was cleared of all long-term complications surrounding the concussion and seizure. Dielman has not taken the NFL's official concussion test and has not been cleared to play.
