The San Diego Chargers have a huge game this week against the Chicago Bears as they hope to keep pace in the shockingly competitive AFC West, but they're going to be doing so at far less than full strength. The team recently announced its inactives list for the game, and five different starters won't be suiting up.
Here's the full list of inactives, reported by Peggy Kusinski of NBC Chicago:
- WR Malcom Floyd
- OG Kris Dielman
- OG Louis Vasquez
- OT Marcus McNeil
- CB Marcus Gilchrist
- WR Bryan Walters
- OG Tyronne Green
The key guys missing here are Floyd, Vasquez, Dielman and McNeil. They're also starting Antwan Barnes in place of Shaun Phillips, who is still recovering from a foot injury. The Chargers are seriously undermanned along the offensive line right now, so expect the Bears to be aggressive to trying to pressure San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers.
