Eddie Royal will not play today with his injuries. Also out: Sorensen, Taylor, Smith, Dunlap, Geathers and Johnson.— Ricky Henne (@ChargersRHenne) December 1, 2013
No real surprises there except for Eddie Royal. The slot WR has been missing practice time with injuries, and was bound to miss a game eventually. Expect Ladarius Green and Seyi Ajirotutu to get more offensive snaps as a result.
Has Brandon Taylor been active at all this season? You'd imagine that a safety of his caliber would at least be able to contribute on special teams. No idea what's going on there.
Another missed game for King Dunlap, which means that D.J. Fluker gets yet another start at left tackle. Think Tom Telesco is watching the film and trying to determine if Fluker can be the team's left tackle of the future?
Jarret Johnson was expected to be out and now he is. Tourek Williams and Thomas Keiser will continue to start with Reggie Walker as the backup OLB. Lord help that group if they have any more injuries.
Also, this is good/bad news:
Cox benched. RT @ChargersRHenne Richard Marshall will start at corner today along with Shareece Wright.— Christopher Hansen (@ChrisHansenNFL) December 1, 2013
