The San Diego Chargers injury report has been released and we likely will be without our starting safety and kick returner for the game against the Cincinnati Bengals
Here is the report:
Fluker, Jacoby and Addae are doubtful. Troutman and Tourek Williams are out. Flowers, Mager and Attaochu Probable. Emanuel questionable
— Ricky Henne (@ChargersRHenne) September 18, 2015
Jacoby Jones and Jahleel Addae both hurt their ankles against the Detroit Lions and both are listed as doubtful on the latest injury report. Neither of them hit the practice field this week with the Chargers. If Addae is out, which he likely will be, Jimmy Wilson will take the starting role in the secondary. Wilson will need to come up and help against the run game. The Bengals likely will plan to feed the rock to their running backs until we can prove that we can stop it.
DJ Fluker has also been listed as doubtful on the official injury report. We didn’t think he had any chance of playing in this game on Sunday.With Fluker out, Chris Hairston will get his first start as a guard in the NFL.
The biggest question mark will be with the rookie Kyle Emanuel. He has been listed as questionable for this week. He made a big impact in his first game of his career. He has been making impact plays any time that he steps on the field. If he is not able to play on Sunday, at least we will be getting Jerry Attaochu back on the field to take the starting role opposite of Melvin Ingram.
Having the whole group healthy for Sunday would be huge against a solid team.
