Tomlinson to Have MRI on Strained Groin, No Idea What That Means for Colts Game

For the first time all season, LaDainian Tomlinson looked like his old, dominating self. Hampered by a toe injury for most of the year, LdT treaded the defense-less Broncos for 96 yards on 14 carries, including three touchdowns, as San Diego eked out a 52-21 win and the AFC West title.

Despite a strained groin that kept him on the sidelines for most of the second half, Tomlinson was understandably elated about his performance and the outcome.

"I was at a point where I was finally healthy, and finally had a chance to really show that I've still got it and can still be highly successful when given the opportunity," Tomlinson said. "It is gratifying to be able to come out here and prove (to) people all the naysayers and what have you that this old man can still run."

And he won't even have to worry about Ellis Hobbsdisrespecting the game this January, either.

The Chargers will host the Colts next week, and just like last postseason, Tomlinson's health could be an issue. According to the North County Times' Jay Paris, LdT will undergo an MRI today on his strained groin. And hopefully, unlike a year ago, we won't be subjected to more of this.

I mean, if Philip Rivers can play without an ACL, certainly Tomlinson can suit up with a strained groin. On the upside, even if LdT can't go, there's always Jacob Hester.
