Here’s some good news, if you’re a Los Angeles Chargers fan:
Our #LACvsDAL Inactives:— Los Angeles Chargers (@Chargers) November 23, 2017
QB C. Jones
WR G. Davis
RB B. Oliver
LB J. Onwualu
OT M. Ola
TE S. Culkin
DE J. Attaochu
Not a single starter on the inactives report! Most of the guys on this list are ineffective backups, at that. On short rest, this is a fairly impressive showing by the training staff.
How do the Cowboys look?
#Cowboys inactives:— Ricky Henne (@ChargersRHenne) November 23, 2017
K M. Nugent
RB D. McFadden
CB B. Benwikere
LB S. Lee
DT D. Ross
TE B. Jarwin
Don’t fret, Mike Nugent is only inactive because Dan Bailey is back from injury today and they haven’t gotten around to cutting Nugent yet (or because they’re waiting to make sure Bailey is 100% healthy before they do).
I’m not sure Darren McFadden has been healthy yet this year, which marks a sad end to a weird NFL career.
Sean Lee is the Cowboys’ most important defensive player. He’s been out for a couple of weeks and will be out for a couple of more. Look for the Chargers to attack that with lots of passes up the middle from Philip Rivers to Austin Ekeler and Hunter Henry.
