CHARGERS INACTIVES: Fluker and Verrett will play vs. Vikings

New, comments

The San Diego Chargers are very injured this week, but two of their most important starters will be playing today in D.J. Fluker and Jason Verrett.

D.J. Fluker and Jason Verrett!

Those are arguably two of the five best players on the San Diego Chargers roster, so that is very important and will definitely affect the outcome of today's game.

Unfortunately, Brandon Flowers and Jahleel Addae are out, so that means we'll get a lot of...Craig Mager, I guess....at the nickel CB position. Good thing the Vikings won't be spreading out their WRs very often.

Ryan Carrethers is finally active. Hopefully he can help slow down Adrian Peterson.

Ladarius Green, as expected, will miss the game with a concussion. That means John Phillips is probably the team's starting TE, so don't expect the Chargers running game to do much of anything today. This is the type of game where Danny Woodhead and Stevie Johnson should be on the field for most of the offensive snaps.
