Key linebacker could be watching on from the sidelines in week 10.
Jarret Johnson could find himself out of action again this week after the San Diego linebacker aggregated a hamstring complaint after his side’s loss to Washington.
After pulling up from the 30-24 defeat at the hands of the Redskins fine, Johnson suffered the setback at training on Thursday.
He has been out for two weeks with the same injury before taking part in the week nine clash against Washington and he is now listed as questionable as the Chargers (4-4) look to take on the high-flying Denver Broncos (7-1).
If Johnson is unable to play it will be a massive blow for San Diego, as they will lose their best pass-rusher before a game against the best passing offence in the NFL this season.
“We’ll take it day-to-day,” San Diego coach Mike McCoy said. “We’ll see how he is on Sunday morning, and we’ll go from there.”
“Their offensive line is talented, and we’ve had time to look at them, scout them out. At the end of the day, it comes down to one-on-one matchups. So whether there’s three, four or five guys rushing, it doesn’t matter who you’re going against, because you’re going to have a battle. And you need to win it.”
Thomas Keiser is likely to be the next in line if Johnson can’t play as the Chargers defence looks to make a dent in the Broncos’ offensive line, which has only allowed 11 sacks on Peyton Manning this season.
