Chargers lose center Nick Hardwick in first quarter of playoff game

The San Diego Chargers had one player on their offensive line who played the same position all season, Nick Hardwick.

Hardwick, the Chargers center, left Sunday’s playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals with an injury.

It appears that Hardwick suffered a shoulder injury. He went down to one knee and was then replaced following an injury timeout.

His return is questionable as the Chargers are ruling it a “neck stinger.” Early in the second quarter CBS cameras caught Hardwick going to the locker room.
