Mike Scifres K SD 9 Days
Scifres is slated to undergo surgery to repair clavicular fracture, the San Diego Union Tribune reports.
Scifres, who has averaged 45.7 yards on 55 punts this season, is presumably done for the regular season, though the report suggests that a postseason return is plausible, should the Chargers qualify for the playoffs.

Chargers agreed to a five-year extension with P Mike Scifres.
Scifres was set to become a free agent after this season. He's been the Chargers' punter since 2004 and has never missed a game, playing through a hernia injury in 2009. Scifres ranked third in the league last season with a 46.9 yards-per-punt average and the Chargers clearly didn't blame him for their 2010 special teams woes.
