Chargers WR Royal, LB Johnson active against Skins

Receiver Eddie Royal is active for the San Diego Chargers

against the Washington Redskins despite a hurt toe injury that kept

him out of practice all week.

Royal enters Sunday’s game with a career-high six touchdown

catches this season.

Also active for San Diego is linebacker Jarret Johnson, who

returns after missing two games with a hamstring injury. He’s tied

for the team lead with three sacks.

The Chargers are without linebacker Donald Butler (groin) and

guard Chad Rinehart (toe).

Tight end Fred Davis is inactive again for Washington, which

gets both starting safeties back: Reed Doughty returns after

missing one game with a concussion and safety Brandon Meriweather

returns from a one-game suspension for helmet-to-helmet hits.

Redskins safety Jose Gumbs is out with an ankle injury.
