The Chargers and Texans are just about an hour away from kicking off, and now we have the inactives lists for both team. On the Los Angeles side of things, we have no surprises. Michael Badgley is, as we all expected, out today. When he was downgraded to doubtful yesterday, Ty Long was basically a given to be today’s kicker. Michael Davis is still not ready to return to the field, so the Chargers’ secondary will, once again, be stretched quite thin this afternoon.
On the Houston side of the ledger, there are no particularly interesting players sidelined that we were not aware of prior to the announcement of the inactives. Seantrel Henderson’s continued absence means that Tytus Howard and Roderick Johnson will remain starters on Houston’s offensive line.
