Go get'em, Nick.
Go get'em, Nick.

As I noted, Gonnella was taken back to the hospital for an apparent blood clot in his leg. Prior to that, Patrick Stevens did a great piece showing how the senior captain and former walk-on was continuing to show his leadership on the team despite his injury.

2. Nick Novak: Out of the league at the beginning of the year, Novak was signed by the Chargers after Nate Kaeding tore up his knee on the opening kickoff of the season. Since then, Novak has been automatic; he hit all five of his field goals today in Denver, including a 51-yarder1 and added two extra points. Since San Diego added him to the roster, Novak has gone 11-of-11 on field goals, 9-of-9 on extra points, and put 14 of his 24 kickoffs into the end zone for touchbacks. That's just about perfect, something the Chargers special teams never could have imagined after their disastrous 2010 campaign.

I'm so glad to see Novak doing well. He was so money for Maryland and sometimes it takes a few years for a kicker to get a regular gig in the NFL. Glad he's making the most of his opportunity thus far.
