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.
