Well, the San Diego Chargers injury report is out and it is scary.

That's at least one offensive lineman ruled out with two more unlikely to play and a fourth that's 50/50. Given that you only start five offensive linemen, missing four is pretty awful. It's also more than possible that the Chargers will be unable to dress half of their starting secondary as well. Given that defending the pass and protecting the quarterback are among the most important parts of the modern NFL, this is overall pretty unfortunate.
The Cleveland Browns are not a good football team and the Chargers are at home, but if the Chargers are really going to go into the game with 60% or more of their starting offensive line already ruled out, they're not going to be in a good position to win. This was supposed to be one of the surest wins on the schedule and it's looking more and more like the Chargers will need some good fortune just to have a chance against what originally looked like an inferior opponent.
Here's hoping that some or all of the doubtful and questionable players are able to suit up on gameday because if they can't that's going to be trouble.
