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 have a chance to climb over the .500 mark this Sunday in Cleveland. Here are some key notes to get you ready for the game at the Browns.
• San Diego leads the series with the Browns, 14-7-1. The Chargers have won four straight matchups, seven of the last eight and nine of the last 11. That includes three straight wins in Cleveland. The team’s last loss in Cleveland came in 2001.
• The Chargers lead the NFL in run defense, allowing just 71.2 yards per game. Four opponents were held under 60 yards: Oakland (45), Tennessee (38), New Orleans (53) and Denver (57).
• Philip Rivers is 2-0 versus the Browns and has a 118 quarterback rating in the two games (37-53-584, 2 TDs, 0 ints).
• Rivers has an overall record of 40-8 in games in which he has a passer rating of 100.0 or higher. He is the Chargers’ all-time leader in completion percentage (63.7%) and his percentage in 2012 is 66.5%.
• Rivers has started 102 consecutive games. Eli Manning is the only quarterback with more consecutive starts (126).
• Antonio Gates (8,007 yards receiving) moved into fourth on NFL’s all-time list for yards receiving among tight ends. He is 178 yards behind Dallas’ Jason Witten. In Week 3, he became only the fifth tight end in NFL history with 600 career catches.
• Gates has 78 touchdown catches, three behind the Chargers’ all-time leader, Lance Alworth, who has 81.
• The tandem of Rivers-Gates has connected on 51 touchdown passes, most by a QB-TE tandem in NFL history.
• Eric Weddle’s nine interceptions over the past 22 games (since 2011) leads the NFL.
• Shaun Phillips has 64.5 career sacks, fourth in team history. Phillips needs one sack to tie Lee Williams (65.5) for third, and he needs 2.5 to tie Gary “Big Hands” Johnson (67) for second. Phillips leads the team with 4.5 sacks, 11 pressures and six quarterback hits. He will make his 99th start on Sunday.
• Mike Scifres’ has 516 career punts, including 206 inside the 20-yard line. Of all of the players with 500 career punts, Scifres has the highest percentage of punts landed inside the 20 (39.9%) in NFL history. He needs just three punts to tied Dennis Partee for second-most punts in team history (519).
• Quentin Jammer has a chance to make an interception in a third-consecutive game for the first time in his career on Sunday.
• Norv Turner has 114 career wins, tying Don Coryell on the NFL’s all-time wins list. Turner has the best winning percentage in team history (52-34, .605 in regular season and 55-37, .598 overall).

• Twenty-one of the 53 active players are new to the active roster this year: 11 of 25 offensive players and 10 of 25 defensive players.
• The Chargers play the sixth toughest schedule in 2012, based on their opponents’ .520 winning percentage in 2011.
• The Chargers will travel the third-most regular-season air miles of any team in the NFL (25,766). Only Oakland (28,692) and Seattle (26,200) will fly more air miles than the Bolts in 2012.
