After a week of not practicing, wide receiver Jeremy Butler, and inside linebackers Jatavis Brown and Denzel Perryman are out.
Only those three are currently ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins, and all three were expected out since the beginning of this week.
More worrisome is that Travis Benjamin is doubtful after missing the entire week’s practice due to a knee injury. Tyrell Williams remains questionable and if neither is available to play Sunday, it will certainly be more difficult for the Chargers coaching staff and Philip Rivers to find a way to move the ball against Ndamukong Suh and the Dolphins defense.
Orlando Franklin is questionable after missing time during the Titans game, but Spencer Pulley has been arguably more effective in limited time anyway, so if he is unable to play it will not be the worst thing for the offensive line.
Perhaps the biggest reason for optimism is that tight end Hunter Henry is only questionable after being a full participant in Friday’s practice. It seems more likely than not that he will be back against the Dolphins.
