Update: Ashton Dulin has been ruled OUT with a concussion.

The Los Angeles Chargers just lost one of their top defenders, as safety Derwin James was been ejected after his helmet-to-helmet hit on Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Ashton Dulin. There’s no doubt that Dulin was a defenseless receiver and that this was the correct call.

Both players, James and Dulin, are being evaluated for concussions.

James missed the last two games due to a quad injury and now will miss most of this game and possibly more if he gets a suspension. Not the best news for a team that is looking to make a run in the playoffs.
