The Chargers have some serious depth problems at wide receiver

Stevie Johnson affectionately dubbed his receiving group “The Aliens” this year.

That'd explain their mysterious disappearance from the football field, at least. Johnson (groin), Malcom Floyd (shoulder), and Dontrelle Inman (neck) might as well have been abducted.

The offense hasn't been the same since Keenan Allen (kidney) was forced out of commission. They've had to rely on a skeleton crew of tight ends and pass-catching running backs instead.

Expect that to change in the final fourth of this season. The Bolts had three active and healthy receivers once Inman was carted off the field last Sunday; they can't go into a game with that low number again.
