Jarret Johnson Injury: Will he play against the Broncos?

San Diego Chargers outside linebacker Jarret Johnson could miss Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos, along with Champ Bailey, but it appears the linebacker Donald Butler will return from his groin injury.


San Diego Chargers


Mike Remmers, OT (ankle)


Lawrence Guy, DE (toe)
Jarret Johnson, OLB (hamstring)
Eddie Royal, WR (toe)


Donald Butler, LB (groin)
Chad Rinehart, OG (toe)
Mike Scifres, P (right knee)
Tourek Williams, OLB (thumb)

Remmers being out is no big deal. Glad to see Butler making it back, as he's missed half of the team's games so far. Lawrence Guy has been great, so it's sad to see him getting dinged up, and Jarret Johnson is very important to the defense. I imagine Eddie Royal will continue to play games, miss practices and get listed as Questionable every week for the next month or so.

Denver Broncos


Champ Bailey, CB (foot)


Duke Ihenacho, S (ankle)


Eric Decker, WR (toe)
Joel Dreessen, TE (knee)
Orlando Franklin, OT (ankle)
Chris Kuper. OG (ankle)
Peyton Manning, QB (ankle)
Knowshon Moreno, RB (ankle)
Manny Ramirez, C (knee)
Julius Thomas, TE (ankle)
Danny Trevathan, LB (ribs)
J.D. Walton, C (ankle)
Wes Welker, WR (ankle)

That seems like an awful lot of ankle injuries. They're coming off a bye, so it's pretty easy to imagine that all of the guys on the Probable list are going to play. Bailey being out is big, and Ihenacho being out would be huge. Keep your eyes on word about Ihenacho Sunday morning.
