Even though it is only week one, injuries will impact the game against the Indianapolis Colts. How will it affect the Los Angeles Chargers’ gameplan against the Colts?

While the preseason is tough on most teams, it has been particularly tough on the Chargers roster.

With injuries, medical conditions, and contract holdouts depleting the Chargers roster of both starters and depth, the team you will see this Sunday will be quite different than the one you would see in a game of Madden.

However important those players may be, remember that last year the Chargers lost two of their best players for most of the year, yet the season turned out quite well.

When players are injured, the team is required to adjust their gameplan to fit the strengths of the backup players as well as the weaknesses of the opposing team.

Below is how the Chargers injuries will impact their gameplan against the Colts, as well as an analysis of how significantly the injuries will impact the team.
