|LS Mike Windt||Ankle||FP||FP||FP||Probable|
Well, that's quite a healthy list of unhealthy players, isn't it? I wouldn't count on King Dunlap playing, which is unfortunate, both for his own well-being and because the Chargers will need all the help they can get against the Bengals front 7.
Jarret Johnson has been upgraded from Doubtful last week to Questionable this week; progress, right? Eddie Royal hasn't practiced any of the last 3 weeks but has still seen the field come Sunday, so I imagine he plays. Darrell Stuckey was a full participant on Friday, but who knows how much the Chargers are willing to mess around with a concussion.
Everyone else is listed as Probable, including D.J. Fluker, Antonio Gates, Nick Hardwick and Ryan Mathews. This is good news for the Chargers offense.
Cincinnati Bengals Injury Report
|G Kevin Zeitler||Foot||DNP||DNP||DNP||Out|
|LB Vontaze Burfict||Ankle||LP||Questionable|
|LB Michael Boley||Shoulder||LP||LP||FP||Probable|
|S Chris Crocker||Hamstring||FP||FP||LP||Probable|
|P Kevin Huber||Lt. Ankle||DNP||LP||LP||Probable|
|LB Rey Maualuga||Knee||FP||FP||FP||Probable|
|DT Devon Still||Elbow||FP||FP||FP||Probable|
|WR Brandon Tate||Ankle||DNP||Probable|
The Bengals aren't nearly as banged-up as the Chargers. Kevin Zeitler being out could help the Chargers' defense. Zeitler has been pretty solid through the first 6 weeks of the season before falling off. If Vontaze Burfict doesn't play, that could also benefit the Offense.
Everyone else listed Probable should be considered ready to play for Sunday, so their injuries are non-factors.
