San Diego Chargers Inactives vs. Cleveland Browns

New, comments

With the roster changes and releases still being processed, the Chargers are only listing 4 players inactive for today's game.

The inactives today are:

Jacoby Jones

Tourek Williams

Jahleel Addae

Craig Mager

Chris Watt

Orlando Franklin

King Dunlap

Everyone else on the actual roster is eligible. Obviously, being without 60% of the starting offensive line is not ideal. In fact, it's downright terrible. Of the two regular starters that are suiting up, only Joe Barksdale is actually healthy. D.J. Fluker will be playing hurt and presumably less effective than normal. The other fill-in starters from left tackle through center are most likely Chris Hairston, Kenny Wiggins, and Trevor Robinson. Some fans will be happy to see Robinson in the lineup due to a misplaced belief that he's better than Chris Watt, but nobody is smiling when they see Hairston and Wiggins in place of King Dunlap and Orlando Franklin. Well, nobody that doesn't play or root for the Browns.

Thankfully, Jason Verrett is going to be active today because the secondary is already short one starter with Jahleel Addae ruled out.  Overall, hopefully the Chargers' healthy players will be enough to beat the Browns.

(UPDATE: So much for that "hopefully." The Chargers have more injured players than inactive spots. Jason Verrett will not be playing today.)
