Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding tore ACL

The San Diego Chargers are going to need to sign another kicker to replace injured Nate Kaeding. According to multiple reports, Kaeding tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He'll likely be heading to injured reserve and will require surgery. Kaeding got hurt against the Minnesota Vikings on Percy Harvin's 103-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

Meanwhile, defensive end Luis Castillo also might be out for the year due to a broken left leg. Running back Mike Tolbert's knee injury isn't believed to be serious, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. Tolbert notched three touchdown runs in the Chargers' win.
