Two Linemen Out 2-4 Weeks
Aug. 20, 1996
SAN DIEGO (AP) _ San Diego Chargers offensive linemen Isaac Davis and Troy Sienkiewicz underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Monday and could rejoin the team within a month.
``We're looking at a minimum of two weeks on both of them, with the possibility of (Davis) going as long as four weeks,'' coach Bobby Ross said, adding neither player sustained ligament damage. ``That's the worst case scenario. We got a little bit of a break.''
Both were hurt in Saturday night's 32-10 exhibition victory over Arizona.
Davis started nine games at right guard last year and one game at left guard. Sienkiewicz has been pushing Vaughn Parker for the starting job at right tackle.
The Chargers pared their roster to 61 Monday, releasing linebacker Mark Brook; tight end Werner Hippler, a native of Germany who starred in the World League; defensive end Pat Ivey; defensive tackle Matt Parker; and wide receiver Larry Stallworth.
The club needs to release one more player Tuesday to reach the mandatory 60-player roster limit.
