San Diego Chargers - PlayerWatch
WR Keenan Allen has had consecutive 100-yard receiving games. The last Chargers rookie to accomplish that Don Norton in 1960, the franchise's first season. Allen is 157 yards shy of a 1,000-yard receiving season.
WR Eddie Royal (toe, chest) didn't work and that is a red flag in that Royal wasn't able to play Sunday. It appears his chest injury is more serious than his toe ailment.
Philip Rivers will always be linked to Giants' QB Eli Manning. The pair were traded for each other about hour after the Chargers selected Manning with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2004 draft. Rivers has a better completion percentage since they became pros, 64 percent to 58 percent, and fewer interceptions, 101 to 162. But Manning has more regular-season and post-season wins, touchdown passes, and of course, Super Bowl titles.
LT King Dunlap (neck) was a full participant and that's a good sign in regards to Sunday.
CB Richard Marshall figures to get his second straight start over Derek Cox on Sunday. Cox signed a $20-million contract in the offseason as a free agent, but he has been a bust.
WR Lavelle Hawkins (knee) was a full participant.
C Nick Hardwick (neck) didn't practice on Wednesday. But that is seen more as a precautionary move and he should start on Sunday.
TE Ladarius Green has two touchdowns receptions this season, one in each of the last two games.
DE Lawrence Guy (toe) was a full participant.
DE Corey Liuget (knee) was a full participant and should start on Sunday.
T D.J. Fluker (knee) was a full participant and will start against the Giants.
OLB Jarret Johnson (hand) was a full participant and should start on Sunday.
