Like we all expected once again this week, the final injury report for the Chargers wound up being a lot smaller than it was throughout the week.
Five players in all carry a designation ahead of Sunday’s game against the Broncos. Linebacker Amen Ogbongbemiga and defensive tackle Otito Ogbonnia are both questionable to suit up while offensive guard Zack Bailey, wide receiver Joshua Palmer, and cornerback Deane Leonard are all sidelined this week. The Chargers activated the 21-day practice window for Palmer to begin this week but it doesn’t look like he improved enough throughout his three practices to warrant being activated off IR. Without him once again, the Chargers’ top wideouts against the Broncos will be Keenan Allen, Quentin Johnston, and then a mixture of Derius Davis, Alex Erickson, and potentially Keelan Doss.
If Ogbonnia is not able to go this week, expect rookie Scott Matlock to be active on game day after being inactive the past few weeks.
