Chargers Announce Injury Report vs. Broncos

Posted by Ricky Henne on November 16, 2012 – 3:58 PM

The Chargers announced their official injury report a short while ago.

Aubrayo Franklin (knee) is out.

Jared Gaither (groin) is doubtful.

Ryan Mathews (neck) and Dante Rosario (hamstring) are questionable.

Antwan Barnes (hamstring), Atari Bigby (quad), Chris Carr (knee), Tyronee Green (ribs/illness), Melvin Ingram (knee), Mike Scifres (rt. ankle) and Eric Weddle (knee/illness) are all probable.

Franklin suffered a deep bone bruise in his knee during the second quarter of Sunday’s game in Tampa Bay.  He is expected to be out a couple weeks.  By missing the game, he will become the first Chargers defensive starter to miss a game this season.

If Gaither does not suit up on Sunday, and it is looking at this moment that it is likely he will miss the game, it will be the second week in a row he missed with the groin injury.

Mathews suffered a stiff neck as a result of a vicious third quarter collision with the Bucs’ Quincy Black.  He missed the practice on Wednesday and Thursday but returned on a limited basis on Friday.

Finally, Rosario’s hamstring injury flared up in the middle of Thursday’s practice.

    The chargers go as far as Gaither will take them. If he (the left tackle) is out, then both tackles on offense struggle to protect the QB. Rivers stats suffer as a direct result of this. AJ must get a LT with first pick in next draft.

    Gaither always hurt. Trade him. Mathews always hurt. Trade him. Get rid of AJ, keep Norv. Next year draft offensive lineman #1 in the draft to protect Rivers!! If Rivers is protected we win… all the time!!!! Just draft those damn OL’s early in the draft, will we ever learn??

    jesse ,WHAT KEEP NORV> you are crazy he is one of the biggest problems we have FIRE NORV and get a real coach

    get rid of them all start fresh

    Hey at this point start over trade gaither,mathews,rivers, stock up on picks. get rid of A.J. now and get rid of norv no matter what, and rebuild next few years at least the fans would support that. I am sick and tired of supporting the chargers for 30 years and getting no commitment to win a championship from the spanos owners. The fans deserve a champion not mediocrity.

    It’s not Norv Turners fault!! If we had Jackson, Sproles, Cromartie and maybe even Michael Turner,,, we would be doing much better.

    Everyone we get rid of, does better on another team! It’s AJ’s fault!! I agree! fire him and KEEP NORV! Why does everyone blame him!

    We have no LT and no RT! This is why Rivers messes up because he is always under duress!

    I’m excitied for this defense moving forward..with that being said depending on what if’s a lot this year is going to kill us..id much rather suffered with the rookies all season..Cuz look now were sending poor Harris up all day against von miller!!! And norv is. Going to blame yet praise the effort by the rookie..but that’s the scape goat..rivers gets at least one turnover via int/fumble.. I hope we get more TO’s though..cause when manning throws picks..its usually in bunches..go bolts!!

    San Diego will get blown out tomorrow. Denver is elite and SD is a mess. Denver 38 SD 14

    This game is the Chargers season.
    If they win, they are only 1 game out, and in the thick of the Wildcard, and divisional spot.
    If they lose, it all ends in Denver!!

    AGAIN… it’s all on the Offensive Line Play. Rivers was hired for his arm, NOT his scrambling skills. bETTER ol ALSO MEANS BETTER AT OPENING “HOLES” FOR rb’S. The OL is what has broken down over time. Defense, we need better pass rushing ability. I would put the blame on AJ as the owner of the “tool shed”. The Coashing staff can only work with the tools thay have. I still would love to see the Bolts m ake and win the big show before I kick the ole bucket. OLD bolt fan from eastern PA.
    TEAM.. don’t hand Denver the game, play with all your heart for 60 minutes. yes all 60 minutes are required.
    Take no prisoners, CHARGE !!

    Norv Shoulders all the blame when it isn’t his fault and so does Rivers at times. Norv has a great football mind, he really does! It’s not his fault his players find the absolute CRAZIEST ways to lose!! Rivers has PLENTY of football left in him and he’s and AMAZING passer, although not the most mobile. But is why we need to focus on that O-line.not another running back, not another wide receiver. If we only seriously focused on that O-line and protecting Phillip these last few years we’d sadly be fine right now. I watch every Charger post game interviews, Phillip and Norv are both humble and they have great football minds. We don’t need another coach.

    Kenny V Cromartie really? Come on he is a joke Florence is someone we should have kept. Rivers is making poor decisions it may be because he has to think under duress but lets call it like it is he cant scramble he is not clutch in then 4th with a chance to win, kc last year saints broncos this year. he had one step to go out of bounds last week and threw the dagger in our own back to tampa defender. Norv aj the line nobody to blame but rivers.

    Well I hope you watched the game “J”. If you don’t understand the O Line Play by now you’ll never get the game. It really is a team sport. Yes this ole guy played Semi Pro back in the early 80’s. Gaither was our hope on the blind side, and you see what happens on the left side when he’s not playing. The rightside tackle can’t move fast enough and most always ends up on his heels, even when he’s fast enough to react to the outside pass rush he’s always pushed back. The Bolts should learn to call offensive plays much earlier so they can use the 25 second clock to make adjustments to defensive lineups. But yet AGAIN, whats the point without STRONG O line play from the big guys up front. We are now out of time in my eyes, as we also need to hope for Denver to also lose a game or two. It’a always best to depend on our own play VS other division teams to lose.

    All bullshit aside man,Ive been thnkin about this for awhile nd ive been holdin my peace 4 a long tym nd im dne. Philip has been full of shit 4 the pas year nd a half. I say trade him 4 Colin Kaepernick

    Sadly I agree Zachster… and yea that explanation of picking offensive plays sooner makes lots of sense. It helps me to understand the O-line much more. Still AJ has been trying to compensate for not picking offensive lineman early in the draft by recruiting free agent lineman. and there’s reasons why they are free agents. they are like used cars. beat up a little bit. this is why Gaither is always hurt. We need a new GM this much I am sure of. One that will draft the proper protection for Rivers. I love Rivers. I’d like to see SD win a championship too in my lifetime. I’m only 35 but by this time… I’m getting worried!!

    oops haha Zachster thought you were talking to me. I didn’t get to watch the game unfortunately. I just moved to Oakland (yuck Raiders) and they played the Raider game instead. But I knew exactly what was going on just by watching the score. I KNEW Philip’s pocket was breaking down constantly :(
