Sports News - Chargers Future Unsure

The wild fires that have devastated Southern California have put a hold on everything - including sporting events. The San Diego Chargers were scheduled to play at home on Sunday against the Houston Texans, but their home field Qualcomm Stadium has been used to place the thousands of San Diego residents that were forced to evacuate. In fact, some of the Chargers like LaDainian Tomlinson's house were in jeopardy from the massive fires. In the meantime, the Chargers have been practicing at the Arizona Cardinals' practice facility in Tempe, Arizona.
