The San Diego Chargers appear to be bracing their fans for the possibility that LaDainian Tomlinson's eight-year run with the team could be over.
The team's Web site says club president Dean Spanos called the star running back yesterday to discuss reports that the Chargers might part with Tomlinson. The 29-year-old has been slowed by injuries the last two postseasons and will count $8.8 million against the salary cap next year.
Tomlinson hurt his groin in the regular-season finale against Denver on Dec. 28. After the game, the Chargers said Tomlinson had a strained groin. Reports surfaced the day of the playoff game against Indianapolis that Tomlinson had a detached tendon.
Four days later, Tomlinson confirmed that report was correct.
