Final Injury List of the Season Is A Short One for the Chargers

There are going to be a lot of names on the field this Sunday for the Chargers that fans may not be used to. Sadly, no team should be having preseason type position competitions at this point in the season.


Chargers Have Another Short Injury List, Numerous Players Return To The Field

If you don’t look at the IR list, then the Chargers are rather healthy. They’re without a ton of huge names and expensive talent, but they’re “healthy.”

Chargers Continue to Show Up for Games As a M*A*S*H Unit

San Diego will probably give it one last fighting effort this weekend as they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. If a loss comes this week though, they’ve really got to consider shutting down some players and not letting their injuries get worse.

Can The Chargers Play A Full Game Against The Broncos?

So, as the two get set to meet Sunday afternoon in the Mile High City, essentially the season is on the line for the Chargers, who limp into Denver losers of four of their last five games.



Chargers Possibly Minus A Few Hands Set For Battle With Bucs

Along with some physical injuries that the Bolts are dealing with, getting healthy mentally is also key.



Can Chargers Win The Mental Game Versus Chiefs?

Yes, the Chargers have had some injuries here and there, but by no means any worse than any other team around the NFL through two months of play.



Can The Chargers Reverse Course And Get A Win In Cleveland?

Not having met the Browns since 2009, the Chargers come into Northern Ohio with much to prove and little room for error.



Chargers Use Bye Week to Heal Physical and Mental Injuries

The most notable of the injuries is kicker Nate Kaeding, missing the last three games due to a groin injury suffered last month, as the Bolts prepared to play at Kansas City.



Chargers Look For Continued Success Against Manning

Lastly, can the home crowd prove beneficial for the Chargers? Keep in mind that AFC West rivals Denver, Oakland and Kansas City are usually well represented when playing in San Diego. If the game is tight down the stretch, some home cooking for the Chargers from their fans could spell the difference.



Chargers Roll Into The Big Easy In Relatively Good Shape

With the different story lines that will be in play Sunday night in the Superdome, the Chargers will at least go into the contest relatively healthy.
