Our #LACvsBUF inactives:— Los Angeles Chargers (@Chargers) September 16, 2018
WR Travis Benjamin
LB Emmanuel Ellerbee
C Cole Toner
RT Joe Barksdale
G Forrest Lamp
DT T.Y. McGill
DE Joey Bosa
Travis Benjamin was a gametime decision. After spending this week in a walking boot during practice, he apparently tested out the foot during pre-game warmups and couldn’t go. This likely means JJ Jones will get a chance to redeem himself returning kicks and punts, while Mike Williams should see increased snaps at WR this week. Start em if you got em.
Forrest Lamp being inactive is a bit of a surprise, especially after Anthony Lynn said this week that he could get some snaps this week. Not to mention the fact that this now means the only OL depth are 2 rookies, UDFA T Trent Scott who got called up from the practice squad yesterday, and 5th round pick Scott Quessenberry who can play C or G.
Joe Barksdale and Joey Bosa continue to be out. No timetable on Barksdale yet but reports are coming out this morning that Bosa will likely be out into October.
