News: Weddle had nine tackle (seven solo) and forced a fumble in Thursday night's loss at Denver.
Impact: Weddle also had an interception which was nullified by a suspect defensive holding call. He continues to be one of the leaders of the defense in San Diego and does not look like he is slowing down any time soon.
News: Green had one reception on one target for nine yards in Thursday night's loss at Denver.
Impact: In a very crowded San Diego offense, Green has yet to carve out a consistent space for himself on a weekly basis. Outside of two four-catch performances in Weeks 3 and 5, Green has basically been a non-factor this season.
News: Royal had three catches on three targets for 29 yards in Thursday night's loss at Denver.
Impact: The pecking order in San Diego is fairly clear and consistent with Keenan Allen and Malcom Floyd serving as the wide receivers who always receive the most targets and Antonio Gates getting his fair share of looks from the tight end position. The Bolts also like to throw to their running backs a fair amount, so there typically isn't too much left for Royal after all is said and done. Since a spectacular Week 4 performance, Royal has averaged just two catches on three targets over the past four games.
News: Draughn did not get a single touch in Thursday night's game at Denver.
Impact: It was the second week in a row that Draughn failed to scratch the box score with Ronnie Brown handling a handful of carries in relief of Branden Oliver in both games. With Ryan Mathews and Donald Brown both expected to return from injuries in the coming weeks, it would appear that Draughn is a long way from having any meaningful role on this team.
News: Brown had one carry for eight yards and caught the lone pass thrown his way for two yards in relief of Branden Oliver on Thursday night in Denver.
Impact: Oliver dominated the touches in this game, racking up 13 mostly ineffective carries and catching seven passes. The Bolts faced a tough Denver defense and were trailing for much of the night, so the run game didn't really have a chance to get rolling. With Oliver clearly entrenched as the number one back now and Ryan Mathews and Donald Brown presumably not far from returning, Brown's value appears to be virtually non-existent.
News: There is a "fear" that Verett made his shoulder injury worse Thursday night and could miss significant time, FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports.
Impact: More information will be available in the coming days, but this would be a tough break for the promising rookie. It would also be bad news for a banged-up Chargers secondary that got toasted by Peyton Manning.
News: Coach Mike McCoy says the San Diego Chargers followed proper medical procedure after Addae had two scary reactions following hits in Thursday night's loss at Denver.
Impact: Addae immediately fell to the ground after a hit on the first play of the game. Late in the third quarter, the safety convulsed while remaining on his feet after a hit. He led with his left shoulder both times. Addae said after the game he passed the NFL's concussion test.
