Chargers Thursday Injury Report

The San Diego Chargers got some good news today on the injury report. Jarret Johnson was back on the field for the Chargers defense. He didn’t have a full practice, but he was back out there and he has a chance to be back on the field on Sunday for the defense. If Johnson is on the sideline on Sunday, then the team will have to rely on Tourek Williams and Thomas Keiser in order to be the starting linebackers for the Chargers.

The Chargers were without a couple of offensive linemen at practice again. Nick Hardwick and King Dunlap were both on the sideline today with neck injuries. Hopefully both guys will get back on the field later this week and will be able to join the offense for Sunday’s contest against the Miami Dolphins.

The injuries have been killing us. We have all kinds of guys that we have been depending on, but they have gone to the sideline for different ailments.

Eddie Royal was on the sideline all over again. I know he gets back on the field for game day, but he needs to get back on the practice field still. We need him to get those reps.

    Why is the injury bug on us this year and every year

    • Stefanie Smith

      Personally, this is just my opinion. But look all over the NFL. Injuries everywhere! I personally think it has to do with the limitations in the CBA that limit the practice time that the guys can have and in pads. Also, they have to have a certain amount of time off after a game, etc. etc. I just don’t think they are toned up enough, and don’t practice enough. It makes you think they are out of shape–i.e. then the injuries. Either that–or it is a side effect of the performance enhancing drugs that some may use (steroids). They bulk up on the outside and bones/muscles etc. are like papier mache on the inside and crumble at the least bit of stress.

        I have a former charger safety as a client for my business, I asked him what he thought about the injury thing and he said “Injuries have always been part of the game but even since they brought in that turf stuff for the practice field and some playing fields that the turf was the problem”

        • Stefanie Smith

          Yeah, I could believe that.
