The Los Angeles Chargers and Tennessee Titans are getting ready to kick off in just over an hour, and we now know which players the respective teams will be without in today’s game. As always, the Bolts will be missing their kicker, Michael Badgley, and their third-string quarterback, Easton Stick, will not suit up either. We have all grown used to seeing the home team missing Justin Jackson, Nasir Adderley, and Melvin Ingram. The interior of the defensive line will be especially light this afternoon with both Brandon Mebane and Justin Jones sidelined due to injury. Russell Okung has not been activated and thus does not need to be listed on the Inactives list.

On the Tennessee sideline, they are missing starting lineback Tayon Brown which will force Wesley Woodyard into the starting base defense for them.

As usual, the injury report favors the Chargers’ opponents. It will be interesting to see if Anthony Lynn and co. can overcome the disadvantage. At the end of the day, the Chargers have the most important edge: the better starting quarterback.
