WR | Vincent Jackson | San Diego Chargers | Fantasy
It is highly unlikely the San Diego Chargers will trade WR Vincent Jackson to the New England Patriots, reports Kevin Acee, of The San Diego Union-Tribune. While there is nothing brewing and it doesn't look likely, Acee warns not to rule a deal out. New England head coach Bill Belichick may be the only person in the league bold enough to pay Chargers general manager A.J. Smith what he wants for Jackson, and the Patriots, owners of two picks in each of the first four rounds, are the only team with enough draft choices to pull it off. San Diego sources have said it would cost even more than the second-round pick in 2011 and third-round pick in 2012 for an AFC team to pry Jackson away. The NFL trade deadline is Oct. 19 and any team that acquired Jackson would have to wait three games after he signed to come off the Roster Exempt List.

Phillips said he'll probably watch TE Jason Witten (knee) a little more closely than others, but he said Witten looked fine in practice Wednesday, Oct. 6. "We have several guys like that," Phillips said. "They're going to play no matter what so you have to gauge how much wear and tear they have on them in some cases and how much they're hurt, how much pain they have. We're not going to let them play with injury ... but players know part of the game is playing some games with pain and certainly the guys that do it like a Witten you have to be careful because he'll go to the injury part and try to play and we don't want that."
