Royal, McClain questionable vs. Raiders
By Eric D. Williams
SAN DIEGO -- For a third straight week, the San Diego Chargers will go into a game mostly healthy.
Receiver Eddie Royal and fullback Le'Ron McClain were the only players on San Diego's injury report listed as questionable. Royal has not practiced on a regular basis since suffering a toe injury against Indianapolis on Oct. 14, however, he's only missed one game due to the injury.
McClain was a limited participant on Friday due to a hamstring injury, so his availability is in question for Sunday’s contest against Oakland. Tight end Antonio Gates also was a limited participant on Friday. However, Gates' issue was not injury related, and he’s expected to play on Sunday. Gates was listed as probable on the team's injury report.
Linebacker Bront Bird (ankle), right tackle D.J. Fluker (ankle), receiver Keenan Allen (shoulder), linebacker Jarret Johnson (hand), running back Ryan Mathews (foot), safety Eric Weddle (hamstring), cornerback Shareece Wright (foot) and center Nick Hardwick (not injury related) all fully participated in practice on Friday and are probable for Sunday’s game.
