    Chargers left tackle Marcus McNeill was placed on injured reserve for a neck injury suffered Nov. 10 against Oakland. McNeill, who has a history of neck injuries dating back to his college days, said he has been assured of a return to 100 percent. "Based on things that have happened before, the pain went away and I was able to play at 100 percent," McNeill said. "I feel good about playing well into the future. The doctors feel good about it. My family does, too." McNeill said rumors of his possible retirement were overblown. "I think that was me not being around," McNeill said. "People couldn't get a vibe on how I was feeling and that I was going to be fine. I needed to take some time to myself and just evaluate everything. I'm back now and believe I'll be better than ever."
