The LA Chargers have battled injuries all season to the point where they definitely have held the team back. Every team in the NFL has to deal with injuries but the number of injuries that the Bolts have suffered is outright absurd.
Luckily, it appears that the team is finally starting to turn a corner when it comes to health. Chargers fans got to see the closest thing to a full-strength offense against the Miami Dolphins and what do you know, the Chargers came away with a shocking victory.
Chargers fans have already received terrific injury news about Rashawn Slater, who might return to the lineup before the end of the regular season. The good news keeps coming for fans, as the Chargers are going to be welcoming back a key pass-catcher in Week 15 against the Tennessee Titans.
It might not seem like a big deal to get the TE2 back in the fold but it absolutely is. This is a team that has struggled in the red zone this season and Parham is one of its best red-zone targets. Not only that, but Parham is undoubtedly the best blocker in the tight-end room. That is going to help improve a run game that desperately needs the help.
Donald Parham's return isn't the only positive injury news for Chargers fans.
On top of getting Donald Parham back in the fold, the Chargers could be getting several other impact players back into the fold for Week 15. The trio of Bryce Callahan, Sebastian Joseph-Day and Trey Pipkins were projected as limited (it was a walkthrough day) for Wednesday's practice. All three players could return in Week 15.
Derwin James was projected to be a DNP on Wednesday but fans should not rule out him potentially returning in Week 15. Brandon Staley said that the team is going to try and get James back this week but is going to err on the side of caution to ensure he is healthy to finish the season.
Even if James does not return in Week 15, this is a promising response by Staley that indicates the quad injury is not that serious and should not be something that keeps James out long-term.
Unfortunately, Staley did not have any updates for Joey Bosa. There was speculation that Bosa could return to practice this week and potentially even play against the Tennessee Titans. Staley could be playing it coy but I would not hold your breath on Bosa returning in Week 15.
