Chargers: Dobbins pushing Wilhelm?
Chargers linebacker Matt Wilhelm missed another practice on Tuesday due to a strained right calf, and Tim Dobbins continues to play well in his place. Wilhelm, the projected starter, has been out since August 9. "It's been good for Tim to play, and I think he's impressed us as a guy who can play," head coach Norv Turner tells the North County Times. "I see Matt as being the starter there. We'll just see where he is when he comes back."
Wilhelm is trying to fill the shoes of the departed Donnie Edwards, who has been a top-tier IDP player for many years. Thus, this news is of some interest to fantasy players. Whomever captures this job could be a sneaky sleeper.
May be pushing for a starting role...
