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 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.

Everyone is talking about Jared Gaither’s decision to stay on the field Sunday night rather than come out after injuring his groin. His choice to remain in the game backfired when he gave up a strip sack of Philip Rivers. This afternoon, the left tackle opened up about what was going through his mind at the time.
“I got hurt. Simple as that. I tried to fight through the injury and it didn’t work. I thought I could still perform and do the job, otherwise I wouldn’t have stayed out there. In the heat of the moment, all I was thinking about was finishing, helping the team and fighting through the injury that I felt.”
Gaither’s groin is getting better each day, and he is hopeful he can suit up vs. the Broncos.
“I’m feeling good. I’m getting better every day and I’m really looking forward to Monday night. I don’t want to gauge anything or speculate, but I’m working hard on maintaining where I’m at and getting better. My goal is to play, and that’s where my focus is.”
