San Diego Chargers

Out
Travis LaBoy, OLB (Knee)

Questionable
Antonio Garay, DT (Toe)
Vincent Jackson, WR (Groin)

Probable
Donald Butler, ILB (Foot)

Most Chargers fans will agree that LaBoy missing this game might actually help the team more than it hurts it. More time on the field for Antwan Barnes means more chances of Matthew Stafford getting sacked.

Detroit Lions

Doubtful
Aaron Berry, CB (Shoulder)
Louis Delmas, S (Knee)

Questionable
Nick Fairley, DT (Foot)
Corey Williams, DT (Hip)

Probable
Don Carey, CB (Concussion)
Gosder Cherilus, OT (Hamstring)
Justin Durant, LB (Hamstring)
Chris Harris, S (Concussion)
Chris Houston, CB (Knee)
Lawrence Jackson, DE (Thigh)
Rob Sims, OG (Shoulder)
Kevin Smith, RB (Ankle)
Amari Spievey, S (Knee)
Kyle Vanden Bosch, DE (Neck)
Willie Young, DE (Ankle)

That is a lot of guys dinged up for a team that is probably heading into the playoffs. Fairley has been hurt all season, it seems, and it would be beneficial for him to miss this game. Louis Delmas is the most dangerous player in Detroit's backfield and the biggest interception threat for Philip Rivers, so him being "doubtful" should help the San Diego passing game.
