The Los Angeles Chargers have now released what will likely be their final injury report of Week 6 ahead of their Sunday night home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Friday offering shows a few interesting developments.
Ending the week listed as doubtful for the Chargers are failing to practice all week are kicker Michael Badgley (right groin), safety Nasir Adderley (hamstring) and running back Justin Jackson (calf).
After practicing on a limited basis on Friday, Chargers defensive end Melvin Ingram (hamstring) ends the week listed as questionable. Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said on Friday that Ingram might play Sunday night against the Steelers.
“He’s a veteran player, and he knows how to take care of himself,” Lynn said. “So if he tells me he can to go, then I trust him.”
Tight end Hunter Henry (knee), who has been sidelined since Week 1, practiced fully on Friday and also enters the weekend listed as questionable. Lynn spoke about Henry on Friday as well.
“We’ll come out tomorrow, and we’ll have a jog through and see how he feels,” Lynn said of Henry when he addressed the media on Friday. “If feels good, then yeah, I’ll put him out there for a few plays.”
Practicing fully on Friday for the Chargers were wide receiver Andre Patton (quadricep), linebacker Thomas Davis (not injury related), cornerback Casey Hayward (back), punter/kicker Ty Long (left foot), and linebacker Denzel Perryman (ankle). None of those players were given game status designations on Friday so all are expected to play Sunday night against the Steelers.
