Donald Butler doubtful, Jarret Johnson questionable for Chargers


The Chargers could be without starting inside linebacker Donald Butler for a second consecutive contest.

Butler is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game at Jacksonville after missing his third practice of the week with a groin injury.

Andrew Gachkar started in Butler’s place in the Chargers’ Week Six win vs. the Colts.

Outside linebacker Jarret Johnson (hamstring) is questionable on the club’s injury report after practicing on a limited basis on Friday. Wide receiver Eddie Royal (toe) is also questionable, but he has not practiced this week.

Seven Chargers are listed as probable, including rookie right tackle D.J. Fluker (calf).

The only Chargers player officially listed out for Sunday is left guard Chad Rinehart (toe). Johnnie Troutman has started for Rinehart in each of the last four games.
