Eddie Royal inactive for the Chargers

Eddie Royal has been on the injury report for a couple weeks now but he’s always been able to play despite not practicing. After sustaining a chest injury in the team’s stunning win versus the Kansas City Chiefs, Royal will miss his first game this year.

In his absence look for the team to give Seyi Ajirotutu more snaps. Ajirotutu had the game-winning touchdown catch last week.

Also inactive for the Chargers: LT King Dunlap, OLB Jarret Johnson, SS Brandon Taylor, NT Kwame Geathers, OT Willie Smith, and QB Brad Sorenson.
