The Chargers defense against the run has struggled this year. It could get a bit of a boost with the return of Jarret Johnson. Johnson has been sidelined with a hamstring injury and then also been sidelined with a hand injury.

With Johnson on the sideline, the Bengals were able to gash the Chargers for big chunks of yards on the ground. Thank goodness the Giants do not have a good running game. We probably will make them look decent though.

Having Johnson back on the field should be a tremendous help to  the defense. With him on the sideline, the Chargers had to use different combinations at outside linebacker and the results have been up and down. Johnson can take a majority of the snaps if he is healthy.
