Bolts Hurting Again on Trip to Maryland

Injury list features seven starters

The Chargers injury report for Sunday's game against the Ravens is not as long as it has been for pretty much every other game this season:

Name                               Injury             Status

G Orlando Franklin        Ankle             Out
ILB Manti Te'o                 Ankle             Out
S Eric Weddle                Groin              Out
OLB Tourek Williams    Foot               Out
ILB Denzel Perryman    Biceps           Doubtful
TE Antonio Gates           Knee             Questionable
NT Sean Lissemore     Hamstring    Questionable
CB Craig Mager             Hamstring    Questionable
RB Melvin Gordon         Ankle              Probable
C Chris Watt                  Groin               Probable

In case you missed the subtitle of our story, that makes seven starters (eight if you count Tourek Williams, who was being counted on as a quality special teams performer) that are dinged up heading to Baltimore.

The offensive line has actually done a really nice job lately in pass protection. Quarterback Philip Rivers has only been sacked four times in his last 127 dropbacks. It's the run blocking that's been a problem, something they'll have to find a way to improve upon on the Inner Harbor.
