Chargers Depth Chart: Week 1 (with Injury Report)

We can all agree, this has been an unusually-busy lead-up to the first game of the season for the San Diego Chargers and their personnel.  Players being cut, signed to the practice squad, released, re-signed, all in a matter of days.

That all said, here's the latest Chargers Depth Chart leading into this week's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.  Given recent history, it may be rendered obsolete by the time I hit publish, but here goes.

Chargers Injury Report

  • Shawne Merriman has been limited in practice this week with an Achilles heel problem.  May not play on Monday.
