I'm not going to go through the entire injury report until after practice tomorrow, but you'll all be happy to hear that everyone who is not on IR practiced today with the exception of Shawne Merriman (who is probably just getting an extra day to rest his foot on the short week). Jacques Cesaire (elbow) had "limited participation", which means he practiced but did not participate in team drills. Everyone who is not on IR should play on Friday night.
Since this week's game is two days early, the normal Friday routine of Game Preview in the morning and full Injury Report in the afternoon will be moved up to tomorrow.
I've always toyed with the idea of doing a weekly BFTB Podcast, but never wanted to do one by myself. Luckily, several of our writers have volunteered to partner up with me and try it out. Assuming the Chargers lock up the playoff bye, we can do at least 3 podcasts (Week 17, Wild Card weekend, first Chargers playoff game) before the season ends for the Bolts. I think the best method would be for each one to get a shot and then see if the rotation works, or if one pair becomes the favorite. However, I have no idea how to pick who goes first. So below, you guys will pick for me.
