The injury report took several new twists and turns this week, none of which are welcome (as if any are to begin with...). Anyways. During the game last Sunday, Chris Williams suffered a wrist injury, was taken back for surgery, and was instantly placed on injured reserve. Friday, Gabe Carimi joined him with his knee injury. Safety Anthony Walters, also with a knee injury, also hit injured reserve. And DJ Moore first gets ejected from Sunday's game, tweaks his ankle in practice on Thursday, gets fined on Friday and is now Doubtful for Sunday against the Chargers. Such is life in the NFL, I suppose.
As far as the Chargers, injuries have hit them hard, with starting tackle Marcus McNeill already out and two other linemen listed as doubtful. Defensive end Luis Castillo will also be sitting this one out, as will receiver Malcolm Floyd and linebacker Shaun Phillips.
