Chargers center Nick Hardwick (neck) questionable to return

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

Chargers center Nick Hardwick is questionable to return to the team's playoff game vs. Cincinnati after suffering a neck injury in the first quarter.

Hardwick was attempting to block Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga when the two collided helmet-to-helmet. Hardwick staggered around like he was dazed before taking a knee on the turf, and he went to the bench where he was examined by team trainers.

Hardwick suffered a neck stinger about a month ago when the Chargers last played the Bengals. He has been replaced at center by Rich Ohrnberger.
