San Diego Chargers left guard Kris Dielman reportedly suffered a seizure on the team flight home from New York last weekend.
San Diego Chargers left guard Kris Dielman will reportedly miss at least this weekend's game against the Kansas City Chiefs after a scary situation unfolded on a team flight. Dielman reportedly suffered a Grand Mal seizure on the flight following last weekend's game against the New York Jets, but is expected to recover.
The report comes from Marty Caswell on Twitter.
#Chargers Pro Bowl LG Kris Dielman suffered a seizure on flight home from NY. He will not play Sunday vs KC. A big loss.
Dielman suffered a concussion prior to the flight home from New York, but it's unclear if it has any bearing on the seizure. Because of his injuries, he will miss Sunday's game against the Chiefs and may miss more game action.
