Tomorrow the Chargers head out East again to face RGIII and the Redskins.  The BYE week came at a great time, so the guys have had a fortnight to rest and recover; hopefully that makes a big difference.  One thing it does mean is that the guy up top, Jarret Johnson, will be back in the starting lineup and that’s where we’ll start in the players to watch:

Jarret Johnson

JJ has been out of the lineup for the last couple of games with a hamstring injury.  He’s been an absolute beast on the outside and definitely one of the biggest playmakers on the defense.  Our D has stepped up in the last couple of games, but having a player like Johnson back can only be a good thing.  Let’s hope he gets back in there and stuffs Griffin and Morris all day long.
