There are a few players who won’t play tonight.

While the team hasn’t officially listed any players in or out for tonight’s preseason showdown against the Arizona Cardinals, there is a list of a few players:

Some veterans are getting some rest while the team plays it safe with a few players who got banged up during week. With Philip Rivers out expect to see a lot of the back-up quarterbacks Geno Smith and Cardale Jones and you might even see a little of UDFA QB Nic Shimonek get some snaps towards the end of game. As for the rest of the offensive players on this list, it looks like wide receivers Tyrell Williams and Mike Williams will be the starters while Travis Benjamin still might be a question mark come gametime. Benjamin missed a few days of practice while most recently supporting a red jersey in Training Camp. That leaves more playing time for receivers on the roster bubble like Artavis Scott and Geremy Davis.

Defensively, both corners Hayward and Williams will sit this one out and Michael Davis and Craig Mager will get some run on defense early on. Toward the end of the CB depth chart Tony Brown and Brandon Facyson will likely get some extended minutes and look to put some good plays on tape vs. the Cards tonight. Behind Joey Bosa will be the man the team touted all offseason for his progression and that is the back-up Defensive End Isaac Rochell who will be thrown into the starting role.
