San Diego Chargers Injury Report, Week 11: Malcom Floyd, Marcus McNeill Out

The Chicago Bears (6-3) square off against the San Diego Chargers (4-5) this Sunday afternoon at 3:15 p.m. as they begin their four-game tour through the AFC West division.

Unlike the relatively healthy Bears -- whose injures have mostly come on the offensive line, including the Gabe Carimi injury and the Chris Williams injury -- the Chargers injuries span the whole roster and include major contributors.

The Chargers No. 2 wide receiver Malcom Floyd and starting left tackle Marcus McNeill have both been ruled out of Sunday's game. Floyd has over 400 yards receiving this year despite missing the last two Chargers games.

Also likely to be without the services of two other starting offensive lineman, LG Tyronne Green (doubtful) and RG Louis Vasquez (doubtful), the Chargers may have to deploy a makeshift line on Sunday. If both guards are indeed unable to play on Sunday, the Bears defense -- which is tied for fourth in the league with 13 interceptions -- may be able to harass quarterback Phillip Rivers with uncommon ease.

With LB Takeo Spikes (probable), DT and former Bear Antonio Garay (questionable), LB Shaun Phillips (out), and SS Steve Gregory (probable) all injured, the Chargers defense promises to be replete with injured starters or backups, giving the Bears offense, which has scored a sixth-best 26.3 points per game, a significant edge.
