The Chargers may be without three offensive line starters for Sunday's game versus New Orleans.
Chargers LT King Dunlap (migraines) has been ruled out, while RT Joe Barksdale (foot) and LG Orlando Franklin (back) are listed as questionable. Barksdale did not practice on Friday, a typically ominous sign. Franklin did get in a limited session. Melvin Gordon has a dream matchup against the Saints in Week 4, but he may have to overcome a significantly short-handed offensive line.
Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland (ankle) is out for Week 4 against the Browns.
He's week to week with a high-ankle sprain. Josh Norman and Greg Toler will cover the boundaries for Washington with Dashaun Phillips handling slot duties.
Bucs WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is out for Week 4.
Indeed, Shorts is still in the league. We just looked it up.
DeSean Jackson has been removed from the Redskins' Week 4 injury report.
The same was the case last week. Jackson was held out Wednesday, "limited" on Thursday, and "full" on Friday. He will start against Cleveland.
Isaiah Crowell (knee) is no longer on the Browns' injury report.
Crowell has practiced fully the last two days after being limited at Wednesday's session. He's been Cleveland's most consistent contributor on offense this year and makes for a nice RB2 play against the Redskins in Week 4.
Chargers DE Joey Bosa (hamstring) is out for Week 4.
The No. 3 overall pick in the draft has yet to play this season.
Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) is out for Week 4.
It's an upgrade to Willie Snead's matchup, assuming Snead (toe) plays. Flowers has been covering the slot between Jason Verrett and Casey Hayward.
Bucs DE Robert Ayers (ankle) is out for Week 4 versus Denver.
Ayers also missed Week 3 with the injury, and the Rams had an offensive bonanza. Ayers is the Bucs' second most talented D-Lineman behind Gerald McCoy.
