The San Diego Chargers are back on the practice field after taking the week off and Donald Butler still is not on the field. Butler has been sidelined with a groin injury and has missed the last couple of games because of the injury. I thought that he would be back in full swing this week, but it seems that he still needs some time to rest.

The Chargers will be facing off against Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins this weekend and it would be nice to have our starting middle linebacker back in the lineup this weekend.

We will have to see his progress during the week. Hopefully he will be able to join practice this week, but it seems that the injury is lingering around for a bit.
