The San Diego Chargers were miraculously healthy during the preseason, which is great because there are a few places on the roster where they don't have much depth.
Let's hope that run of good health continues.
Jacoby (ankle), Addae (ankle), Fluker (ankle), Watt (groin), Troutman (arm), Tourek (foot) did not practice. Green (concussion) was limited— Ricky Henne (@ChargersRHenne) September 23, 2015
That seems bad.
Chris Watt, the starting center, has a groin injury. Those don't usually heal quickly, and it's especially crucial for him to be healthy while D.J. Fluker is injured.
Without either of them, Trevor Robinson likely gets the start at Center (without a backup to speak of), and Swing Tackle Chris Hairston gets another (hopefully not disastrous this time around) start at Guard. Yikes.
Also, what's this about Ladarius Green?
Terrible news here for Ladarius Green. Limited participant due to concussion. Suffered during game Sunday, team says. His second this month.— Michael Gehlken (@UTgehlken) September 23, 2015
Two concussions in three weeks seems like it wouldn't be good for the brain.
Also, not that there's ever a good time to have a severe head injury, but this is a particularly bad time for Ladarius Green to have a severe head injury. Antonio Gates is still suspended for another two games, which means that either Green is playing groggy on Sunday or John Phillips (who didn't make the 53-man roster, by the way) is your starting Tight End.
So, about that injury luck...
