(NOTE: Post will be filled in as info becomes available)

A couple legitimate concerns here:

- Depth at corner could again be tested with Joyner and Roberson both sidelined.

- The Rams are limited in offensive capability. Taking Jared Cook out of the mix would not help at all.

- There's a fair question to be asked how vital Cory Harkey is to the running game. I'd prefer that not to be answered for us by having him sit out injured.

- A late injury to the long snapper? That's one of those things that's weird and rare and yet has the capability to threaten the Rams with a susceptibility to a big mistake on ST whether he's replaced with someone with less rapport in punting and field goal situations or if he plays injured and it leads to a mistake (Greg Zuerlein Week 8 performance anybody?).

Here's what the Chargers will be dealing with.
