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.
