Chargers center Nick Hardwick (neck) questionable to return
Chargers center Nick Hardwick is questionable to the team's playoff game vs. Cincinnati after suffering an 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.
