Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (neck) missed practice again Thursday. Inman suffered a scary injury in Week 13 so don’t be surprised if he’s out this week.

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson (groin) missed practice again Thursday. Johnson was unable to finish the game last week so we doubt he’ll be able to return to face the Chiefs.

Chargers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) took full practice reps again Thursday. The Chargers are very dinged up at receiver, so Green could see a lot of playing time. He played 88% of the snaps in Week 13, but only had two catches for 21 yards (on six targets) to show for it.

David Johnson passes pass blocking test

ESPN - [Full Article]

There wasn’t much David Johnson's teammates needed him to prove Sunday.

They knew the Arizona Cardinals rookie was fast and strong. He had dedicated himself to learning the playbook and was mature beyond his years. They expected what he provided -- the 99 rushing yards on 22 carries and the two receptions for 21 yards and a touchdown -- in a win over the Rams on Sunday.

But there was one thing that Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer wanted to see out of the running back: How well he could pass block.

“It’s the thing he had to prove in a live situation,” Palmer said. “He hadn’t had that many opportunities up until now but we had complete confidence in him.”

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say the Cardinals' offense went over the pressures they expected from the St. Louis Rams. Every question Palmer had, Johnson answered perfectly. His knowledge came through Sunday. This is a big deal for Johnson's future in terms of how much he's on the field, especially in obvious passing situations, and will help to keep Johnson a solid fantasy play going forward.

Stevie Johnson injures groin

In the second half, Chargers WR Stevie Johnson exited with a groin injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Dontrelle Inman was carted off with a neck injury, too, so the Bolts are very banged up at the position. Malcom Floyd, Javontee Herndon and Tyrell Williams are next up on the depth chart. This puts a little dent in the value of Philip Rivers who has some nice fantasy playoff matchups on the horizon.

Chargers wide receiver Dontrelle Inman (neck) was carted off the field in the first quarter and did not return. Chargers coach Mike McCoy after the game said Inman's initial tests showed positive signs, as the wideout was able to move his hands and feet.

Fantasy Impact:

The Chargers have been banged up at the WR position this season losing Keenan Allen. Stevie Johnson was also injured in this game with a groin issue. Javontee Herndon and Tyrell Williams are next up on the depth chart.

C.J. Anderson (ankle), Vernon Davis (concussion) injured

Broncos running back C.J. Anderson will not return to action against the Chargers with an ankle injury.

Tight end Vernon Davis suffered a concussion at the end of the first half. He will not return to the game.

Fantasy Impact:

It wasn't clear how severe the injury was at first, but recent reports say Anderson doesn't think it's a big deal. As we always say, it's tough to trust a player when it comes to injuries so stay tuned. Ronnie Hillman became the primary back with Juwan Thompson also getting carries. Anderson was off to a good start with seven carries and 42 yards.

As for Davis, Owen Daniels would become the primary TE if Davis has to miss time.

Chargers QB Philip Rivers (foot, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 13. Rivers should be fine to face the Broncos this week.

Friday, December 4, 2015, 6:28pm

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 13. With Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington both out, David Johnson should see the bulk of the touches against the Rams, who are #18 in RB aFPA. HC Bruce Arians says he could get “up to 25 touches” against the Rams, so he’s a Sneaky Start this week.

Friday, December 4, 2015, 6:28pm

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, finger, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 13. Sanders looked great last week. He’ll be out there against the Chargers on Sunday.
