League Considering Contingency Plans In Case Game Can't Be Played in San Diego

PHILADELPHIA--NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell met with San Diego Chargers President Dean Spanos here this evening to discuss contingency plans in case the team is unable to play in San Diego as scheduled Sunday.

The wildfires raging in San Diego County have forced the Chargers to leave town. They're scheduled to practice in Arizona at the Cardinals' training facility the rest of this week. They are to play the Houston Texans at home on Sunday.

Goodell said the league is considering moving the game to Los Angeles, Arizona or Texas if it cannot be played in San Diego. League officials have discussed Reliant Stadium in Houston or Texas Stadium in Irving as possible sites in Texas.

"We'll have to make a decision on the game as soon as we have more information," Goodell said before his meeting with Spanos.
