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.

Antwan Barnes missed last week’s game in Tampa Bay with a strained hamstring. The good news is that he returned to practice today in a limited fashion and feels he has a strong chance to play on Sunday.
Here’s what he had to say.
“I felt excellent today. I still have a bit more work to do, but I feel pretty good. It’s up to the coaches to decide if I’m good enough to go on Sunday, but I feel like I did well today. I’m going to leave it in their hands. I’ve had injuries like this numerous times, and this is the earliest I’ve ever come back from it. So I feel good.”

The Chargers just announced their injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Antwan Barnes is listed as doubtful.
Jared Gaither, Corey Liuget and Demorrio Williams are questionable.
Atari Bigby, Chris Carr, Robert Meachem, Shaun Phillips and Eddie Royal are all probable.
Barnes injured his hamstring late in the game against the Chiefs and had to be helped off the field. He has not practiced all week, instead watching the team from the sidelines with his leg wrapped up.
Meanwhile, Gaither (groin) and Liuget (hamstring) were limited in practice on Wednesday before being kept out on Thursday and Friday. Williams, meanwhile, has been limited the entire week after injuring his abdomen against the Chiefs.
The rest of the injuries to Bigby (quad), Carr (quad), Meachem (hamstring), Phillips (finger) and Royal (hamstring) do not appear to be serious and they all are expected to play.
