SAN DIEGO (Dec. 8, 2005) -- Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson didn't practice again due to bruised ribs but still plans to play Dec. 11 against Miami.
Tomlinson plans to practice Dec. 9, when there will be less contact.
"I was able to run, but that was about it," said Tomlinson, who came out of a 34-10 victory against the Oakland Raiders with the injury on Dec. 4, but then returned.
"I just don't want to take a chance and be out there and have somebody bump into me and re-aggravate it," said Tomlinson, who also didn't practice Dec. 7. "It's on its way to healing and I don't want to slow the process down at all."
The Chargers (8-4) have won five straight.
