On Friday, the Chargers announced that cornerback Casey Hayward and outside linebacker Uchenna Nwosu would be out this week while running back Kalen Ballage would be questionable as a game-time decision. Alas, the starter for the last few weeks will be inactive against Buffalo.
Other inactives this week include quarterback Easton Stick, offensive guard Tyree St. Louis, offensive tackle Storm Norton, and defensive tackle Cortez Broughton.
Luckily, the Chargers were able to activate cornerback Brandon Facyson off of the reserve/COVID-19 list this week, which mean he’ll likely get the start in place of Hayward. With Chris Harris Jr. back, he’ll take back his spot in the slot which means Tevaughn Campbell will have to find his snaps elsewhere this week.
With the top two players out at the LEO position, expect the defensive line to feature some rotation. Joey Bosa could see time at the LEO while Jerry Tillery sees time at base end while linebacker Emeke Egbule could also be used on the line of scrimmage.
