San Diego Chargers LB Jarret Johnson participated in practice for the second straight day. It looks like he will rejoin the team on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Johnson did not play last week against the Indianapolis Colts because of a hamstring injury. With Johnson out of the lineup, the Chargers had to use both Larry English and Tourek Williams as the starters on the outside.

With Johnson back in the lineup, English and Johnson will likely be the starters and Tourek Williams and Thomas Keiser will provide the depth on the outside for the team.

Johnson has been one of the standouts on the defensive side of the football. He was one of the few players that was able to get pressure on the quarterback. The team stepped up in his absence and hopefully they will be able to keep that pressure with Johnson returning.
