NFL: New York Giants at Los Angeles Chargers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

As we all expected, Austin Ekeler is going to play this evening despite being banged up from this past Sunday’s game against the Giants. Ekeler tweaked his ankle and although he did not return, he didn’t look like a guy who was all that troubled by what had happened.

As Tom Pelissero tweeted this morning, barring a huge setback, the team’s RB1 is going to give it his all in a pivotal game against the division leaders.

Other players who are questionable for tonight include Derwin James, Alohi Gilman, and Asante Samuel Jr. I would expect all three to play, especially in a game that means so much to either club.

Aside from Rashawn Slater being out, this team is going to look as healthy as possible for this AFC West cage match.

And now for today’s links.
