Good Morning, Bolts From the Blue.
The Chargers have started the week with a lot of names on the injury report but the good news is that half of them were full participants, this is not including Khalil Mack who got his usual veteran rest day. There was positive news for starting tight end Gerald Everett and wide receiver Jalen Guyton as they both practiced in a limited capacity after they missing the Week 11 game against the Green Bay Packers. JT Woods also put in a limited practice for the second week in a row whilst he is working his way back from an undisclosed illness that has kept him off the field since Week 4. Fingers crossed we get to see the young safety get involved in Brandon Staley’s renewed competition for starting places after missing most of the season so far.
Midseason signing Nick Vannett is in the concussion protocol and did not practice meaning his game status is in doubt. Keenan Allen was limited again as he rehabs the shoulder injury he suffered in Week 10 however his game status should be unaffected judging by the evidence of the same practice pattern as last week before he played 61 snaps which led all wide receivers.
