The Chargers will have running back Ryan Mathews in the lineup against the Broncos on Sunday afternoon, but they won’t have their starting right guard.

Jeromey Clary, who injured his shoulder in practice on Wednesday and did not practice for the rest of the week, is inactive for the game, forcing the Chargers to shuffle their starting offensive line. Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego reports that the Chargers will shift Chad Rinehart to right guard and install Johnnie Troutman at left guard against the Broncos.

Mathews also missed practice this week, but the ankle he injured against the Bengals checked out well enough for him to get the green light on Sunday. Center Nick Hardwick, right tackle D.J. Fluker and wide receiver Eddie Royal, who were all listed as questionable, are all active as well.

Broncos tight end Joel Dreessen was listed as probable with a knee injury, but is inactive for the first time since the third week of the season. Running back Ronnie Hillman, defensive end Derek Wolfe, quarterback Zac Dysert, cornerback Tony Carter, guard Chris Kuper and defensive tackle Sione Fua round out the inactives.

Quarterback Brad Sorenson, wide receiver Lavelle Hawkins, cornerback Marcus Cromartie, defensive lineman Sean Lissemore, tackle Kenny Wiggins and safety Brandon Taylor are also inactive for San Diego.

    So what happens if the court rules 30 minutes before kickoff that the Steelers should be on the field? I guess if they aren’t there the Chargers will have to fill the spot.

    Three hours left on the clock for the Dolts. Lightning doesnt strike the same place twice.

    That may be true, but electricity runs continuous through wires when the switch is on. And San Diego has that switch on. Get ready to be electrified. Not a Chargers fan, but rooting due to wanting the AFC championship played in New England.

    Chargers win easily with running game and defense. 31-17. Peyton is still awesome, Denver just has a lot of holes outside their passing game.

    We have six rings.

    People really need to try to understand how important the Steelers are. Without us, there is no NFL. Our rings speak for themselves. Your trophy case cries at night.

    It seems likes Steeler fans are the only ones that make any sense around here. If we weren’t robbed blind by Rigger Goodell and his goons, we would still be marching.

    I never cry about football, it’s nothing but pure joy from my perspective. I don’t have lack of focus to cry.

    Broncos will make a statement at mile high today.
    Mathews has had a similar season as Moreno (Moreno having a few less yds but 4 more TD,s) and one back is healthy the other is not.
