The Chargers and Broncos are a little over an hour away from kick off, and now we have the inactives lists for both teams. For the home team, their inactives are roughly who we expected since Mike Williams had already announced publicly that he intended to play today. For the Broncos, none of their inactive players stand out as particularly meaningful.
Michael Badgley is once again inactive. We knew that was going to be the case when the team signed a kicker to take the weight off Ty Long. Hunter Henry is sounding more and more like he’s getting closer to coming back, but it likely will not be for a few more weeks. Melvin Ingram is likely out at least another week with his injury, and Nasir Adderley has yet to be healthy for more than a couple weeks at a time. Justin Jackson is not going to be rushed back with Melvin Gordon back in the fold, and the remaining inactive players are just guys that can’t make the cut for the active roster.
