San Diego Chargers LB Jarret Johnson is still on the sideline during practice on Friday. He injured his hamstring in the game against the Oakland Raiders and may miss time this week with the injury. Johnson has been having an excellent season and would be missed on the defensive side of the football. He has been one of the few players that have been able to provide pressure on the quarterbacks for the Chargers. With Dwight Freeney already out for the year, the team would be ridiculously thin at the position.

If Johnson were to be out, the Chargers would have to start Larry English and Thomas Keiser at outside linebacker and Tourek Williams would be the next man up on the depth chart.


We need some players to help out on defense. They have been torn to shreds this season and we are playing against one of the best young quarterbacks in the game. We need all the players that we can get for this game.

      On the ticker tape on NFL Network saying who was in and who was out, I saw Johnson’s name and next to it OUT. I think he is out for this Sunday, but hopefully I misread it or NFL Network is wrong.
