Report: Chargers' Lineman Suffered A Seizure On Team Plane

Friday October 28th, 2011

The initial reports were that Chargers left guard Kris Dielman had declared himself out of Monday night's game at Kansas City after suffering a concussion in last Sunday's game.  The follow-up reports paint a scarier picture.

According to Kevin Acee and Chris Jenkins of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Dielman "suffered a Gran Mal seizure as the team's flight descended into San Diego," and the lineman is going to miss at least the team's next two games.

While Dielman did not confirm the seizure, Acee and Jenkins quote sources who describe the Dielman's experience on the plane as "violent" and "scary".
