With kickoff a little over an hour away, we have the Los Angeles Chargers inactives for their game against the Rams. Via Twitter:

We always knew Joey Bosa and Joe Barksdale would be inactive and their was concern that Forrest Lamp would be unable to suit up yet again. Travis Benjamin’s inactivity is a bit of a surprise as there had been positive reports throughout the week regarding his likely availability. Emmanuel Ellerbee, Cole Toner, and T.Y. McGill, meanwhile, are simply the kind of players that if all goes well will never be active on game days.

Hopefully, rookie Uchenna Nwosu will once again fill in ably for Bosa. At right tackle, one is left praying that Sam Tevi figures out a way to just not be terrible. Benjamin’s absence makes it a bit easier for the Rams to key in on the short and intermediate passing game, but it also decreases the odds that the Chargers will lose because of dropped passes, so there are pros and cons at work here.
