San Diego Chargers vs New York Jets Injury Report

New, comments

The final injury report before Sunday's game is out, and it doesn't look good for San Diego.

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Week five is upon us and the main issue for the presently-successful Chargers is the numerous amount of injuries that have affected the players. Here we take a look at both the Chargers' and the Jets' injury reports for the Sunday afternoon matchup.

San Diego Chargers Injury Report

NAME POSITION INJURY WED. THU. FRI. GAME STATUS
Jerry Attaochu OLB Hamstring DNP DNP DNP Out
Donald Butler ILB Shoulder LP LP FP Probable
Malcom Floyd WR Illness DNP FP - -
Dwight Freeney OLB Knee LP DNP LP Questionable
Ladarius Green TE Hamstring LP FP FP Probable
David Johnson TE Shoulder LP LP FP Questionable
Jarret Johnson OLB Shoulder LP FP FP Probable
Cordarro Law OLB Ankle FP FP FP Probable
Corey Liuget DT Concussion LP LP FP Questionable
Ryan Mathews RB Knee DNP DNP DNP Out
Rich Ohrnberger C-G Back DNP DNP DNP Out
Manti Te'o ILB Foot DNP DNP DNP Out
Jason Verrett CB Hamstring LP LP FP Probable
Reggie Walker LB Ankle DNP DNP DNP Out
Shareece Wright CB Knee DNP DNP DNP Out

The Good News:

Jason Verrett seems to be on track to play against New York, as well are Ladarius Green and Donald Butler. All these players participated throughout the week in practice and will help bolster the already strong defense against the struggling Geno Smith.

The Bad News: Without Dwight Freeney and Corey Liuget, the defense loses two key players that generate not just pass rush, but quarterback hurries and running stops. Add the fact that Attaochu is officially out for the game and the Bolts seem to be fielding a very shaky pass rushing squad.

New York Jets Injury Report

NAME POSITION INJURY WED. THU. FRI. GAME STATUS
Willie Colon G Knee LP LP FP Probable
Eric Decker WR Hamstring LP DNP DNP Questionable
Breno Giacomini T Back - - FP Probable
Damon Harrison DL Ankle FP FP FP Probable
Chris Johnson RB Ankle FP FP FP Probable
Nick Mangold C Shoulder LP LP FP Probable
Dee Milliner CB Quadriceps LP FP FP Probable
David Nelson WR Ankle DNP DNP LP Questionable
Calvin Pryor FS Quadriceps LP FP FP Probable

The Good News: It seems like a banged up Chargers pass rush will be going up against a banged up Jets offensive line. The secondary will have an added lift, with Decker and Nelson both questionable for Sunday. With the struggles of Geno Smith prevalent, we'll see if he can survive without his top wideout and weapon.

The Bad News: The young guns are getting healthy. With Calvin Pryor playing decently well and Dee Milliner returning, the secondary of the Jets seem to be getting a much needed boost. With Rivers playing at near-MVP level, we'll see if these younger players can go head-to-head against Felipe Rios.
