GM Smith Peeved at Tomlinson About Leaking Injury


From: San Diego Union Tribune

General Manager A.J. Smith was clearly upset that the extent of LaDainian Tomlinson’s groin injury was leaked before Saturday’s game and that Tomlinson confirmed the extent of the injury Wednesday. Teams prefer their injury information to be vague, and while no one expected Tomlinson to play against the Steelers, the Chargers preferred his status remain at least somewhat up in the air.

Asked Thursday about Tomlinson’s specificity, Smith was peeved, even making a pointed reference to the relationship between Tomlinson’s camp and the ESPN reporter who first reported the severity of Tomlinson’s injury. “I don’t discuss (injuries),” Smith said. “Any medical information you may want on LT from our organization will come from our head coach and (public relations director) Bill Johnston. If you would like additional injury updates, I suggest you contact LT, his agent Tom Condon and (ESPN’s) Chris Mortensen.”
