Chargers' banged-up defense goes to Philly

All four San Diego Chargers on Friday's injury report are defensive players.

That’s not exactly ideal heading into a game against the Philadelphia Eagles on a short week. The Chargers, who blew a 21-point lead in the second half to Houston on Monday night, have to face the fast-paced, Chip Kelly Eagles’ offense.

Depth can become a problem if these injuries are an issue.

Only one San Diego player is listed as out -- rookie Manti Te’o. It is no surprise. The inside linebacker has not practiced since suffering a foot injury Aug. 8. Bront Bird will continue to play for Te’o.

The other San Diego players on the report are all probable. They are defensive ends Corey Liuget (shoulder) and Sean Lissemore (elbow) and safety Brandon Taylor (knee).
