NFL Notes: Los Angeles, Chargers, Colts, & Giants


Los Angeles

Peter King of MMQB reports the Carson proposal “seems to have more momentum” than Stan Kroenke’s plan to move the Rams to a stadium that would be built in Inglewood.

According to King, NFL owners want to support the Spanos family and the Chargers, given that they have done everything they can to get a new stadium in San Diego for years.

If a vote were to take place right now by the members of Committee on Los Angeles Opportunities, King reports that it would either end up 4-2 or 5-1 in favor of the Carson project.

In the end, King mentions that the committee is likely to side with Carson as long as the new St. Louis stadium is rock-solid when it comes time to vote.


Chargers HC Mike McCoy was asked about the reports that GM Tom Telesco received a contract extension this summer.

“I am happy for Tom [Telesco] but I was not offered a contract,” McCoy said, via Pro Football Talk.

McCoy said his focus continues to be preparing for their next game.

I am worrying about this week,” McCoy said. “We are going to learn from this film and we are going to go on to next week and keep on fighting, like I have said week in and week out from day one here. That is the only way I know how to do it.


Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (neck) said he isn’t sure if he’ll be able to play in their Week 14 game against the Jaguars.

I did get X-rays and I’m in a little bit of pain,” Hasselbeck said, via “I got hit on the top of the head and kind of just got my head compressed into my neck.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano said Hasselbeck will undergo further testing Monday, but mentioend that he believe Hasselbeck will be “okay.”
