    The Chargers will have to make a couple changes to their starting lineup in Sunday's AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Broncos.

    Right offensive guard Jeromey Clary is not playing with a shoulder injury, so Johnnie Troutman steps in to start on the offensive line, something he's done nine times this season.

    Defensive tackle Sean Lissemore is also inactive, so Cam Thomas, who has played some of the best football in his career, gets the nod.

    Running back Ryan Mathews will be available and is, so far, in the starting lineup. He tested his injured ankle on the field before the game and decided he'll give it a go.

    The other inactives are QB Brad Sorensen, WR Lavelle Hawkins, S Brandon Taylor, CB Marcus Cromartie, and and OT Kenny Wiggins.

    On the Broncos side, starting defensive end Derek Wolfe is out, as is cornerback Tony Carter, who scored a pair of touchdowns against the Chargers in Denver's 35-24, historic comeback win at Qualcomm Stadium two years ago.

    Denver also left running back Ronnie Hillman, the former SDSU Aztec, off the active roster for the game.
