Which team is healthier heading into the Chargers and Bengals wild card playoff matchup in Cincinnati?

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

San Diego Chargers


Sean Lissemore, DT (shoulder)
Eddie Royal, WR (toe)


Ryan Mathews, RB (ankle)
Kendall Reyes, DE (ankle)

They'll all play, and that is one hell of a healthy team.

Cincinnati Bengals


Terence Newman, CB (knee)


Kyle Cook, C (foot)
Tyler Eifert, TE (neck)
Wallace Gilberry, DE (concussion)
Jermaine Gresham, TE (hamstring)


Anthony Collins, OT (ankle)
Chris Crocker, S (knee)
A.J. Green, WR (knee)
Dre Kirkpatrick, CB (illness)
Vincent Rey, LB (ankle)
Andre Smith, OT (ankle)
Andrew Whitworth, OG (ankle)

The first battle of every NFL game is on the injury report, and the Chargers have clearly won this one.

One of the reasons Andy Dalton threw four interceptions last week was that he sorely missed his two play-making tight ends. If one, or both of them, misses this game, expect a few hiccups for the Bengals' passing game.
