Chargers to be without four key players

The San Diego Chargers went through their Tuesday practice without four key players, and all of them are expected to miss Thursday night's game with the Oakland Raiders.

Defensive lineman Luis Castillo (leg), guard Kris Dielman (concussion), receiver Malcom Floyd (hip) and linebacker Shaun Phillips (foot) did not practice on Tuesday, and none of them are expected to play on a short week this week.

There is the hope, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune that three of the four could be back and playing when the Chargers take on the Chicago Bears on Nov. 20. Castillo, however, still is not expected to be available then.
