NFL: Tomlinson’s injury ‘tough’

Associated Press
SAN DIEGO ó There was the strained groin in 2004, the lingering rib injury in 2005, a jaw injury in 2006, the knee injury in last year’s playoffs and then his jammed right big toe earlier this season.
Now there’s the groin injury that’s dogging LaDainian Tomlinson to the point that he might have to sit out San Diego’s playoff game at Pittsburgh on Sunday. He isn’t sure if a week’s worth of treatment and rest is going to be enough to allow him to play.
“This is a tough injury,” Tomlinson said Monday. “I would probably venture to say it’s probably the toughest of my career. We’ll see what happens.”
The Chargers say Tomlinson has a strained groin. There have been reports he has a detached tendon.
n TAMPA, Fla. ó A Florida man is suing Chargers running back Michael Bennett and a former Tampa Bay teammate, saying they attacked him at an International House of Pancakes.
Brian Gordon said in a lawsuit that Bennett, offensive lineman Anthony Davis and another man assaulted him in the restaurant parking lot in Tampa on Oct. 13. Gordon also alleges that Bennett had a gun.
Bennett on Monday denied having a weapon and said he was trying to be a peacemaker. No criminal charges have been filed.
Gordon told the Tampa Police Department he was eating breakfast around 3:45 a.m. when Davis began yelling profanities at a cook and waitress and demanding his food. A patron asked him to stop using foul language, which Gordon said aggravated the situation, and that Davis threw a wooden high chair at his chest. He thrust it back at him.
Gordon told investigators Davis then charged at him, punched him once in the mouth and knocked him to his table.
Davis told detectives he was walking out the front door when he was hit by something and was knocked out. He also told police he didn’t hit a man in the restaurant.
