The Chargers don’t know yet whether cornerback J.C. Jackson will be able to play tonight against the Chiefs.

Jackson will go through pre-game warmups and then be a game-time decision, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

The Chargers signed Jackson to a five-year, $82.5 million contract with the idea that he’d make a big difference in their secondary, but he had to miss Week One after August ankle surgery. If he can play tonight, he’d be a major boost to the Chargers’ defense against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ excellent passing game.

The Chargers and Chiefs kick off tonight at 8:20 p.m. ET in the first game of the NFL’s new Thursday Night Football package that airs only on Amazon Prime Video. We’ll know when the inactives come out at 6:50 whether Jackson is ready to go.

  1. Better get this guy on the field. Can’t make fun of Belichick for not expending cap on a big contract if the guy isn’t playing at the big contract level.

  2. If Jackson doesn’t play Mahomes is going to light up the Chargers (he may light them up anyway, but w/o Jackson he surely will). This game can get ugly real fast.

    BB is the master. Other than Brady stumbling into an All Star offense in TB during the start of a pandemic, he knows when the player gets the big head and walks, while having a replacement.

    My guess is Jackson slipped this offseason after the ink dried and forgot who made him.

    His name is Bill Belichick.
