The San Diego Chargers need all the playmakers on the defensive side of the football that they can get. Jarret Johnson has been playing well for the Chargers defense and will be needed tonight against the Indianapolis Colts. He suffered a hamstring injury against the Oakland Raiders last week and has not been able to see much action in practice this week. He is out on the field before practice and is running and warming up. He is a game-time decision. We should learn soon if he will be able to get out there and play.
Mike McCoy said Jarrett Johnson would be a game-day decision. He's running/warming up on the field now in front of the trainer

The Chargers already have to rely on Larry English and Thomas Keiser more than they would like. If Johnson has to sit on the sideline in sweats and a ballcap, then we will have to see more of them and we likely will see the rookie Tourek Williams getting more reps. Not exactly what we want to hear. Hoping Johnson can get out there and make an impact.
