Chargers HC Brandon Staley says S Derwin James did "no damage" to his hamstring in Thursday night's loss to the Chiefs, according to Gilbert Manzano of the Orange County Register. The coach added that he's optimistic James will be back in time for next Sunday's visit to Houston. We'll see how the star safety fares during the upcoming practice week. James, of course, entered Thursday's game questionable with the hamstring issue. So he'll carry at least some re-injury risk into Week 16 as well.

Chargers S Derwin James left Thursday night's game against the Chiefs with a hamstring injury and is questionable to return. James was a game-time decision for the hamstring issue that kept him out in Week 14. It's not immediately clear whether he aggravated that or sustained a new injury, but we'd bet on a tweak of the existing injury.

Chargers S Derwin James (hamstring) is active for tonight's game against the Chiefs. He'll carry some risk with the hamstring issue that kept him out last week, but James resides low in DB1 territory in our Week 15 rankings.

Chargers S Derwin James is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Chiefs because of the hamstring injury that kept him out on Sunday. James put in limited practices Tuesday and Wednesday, but HC Brandon Staley says they want to work him out pregame to see if he's ready to play. We'll update James' status about an hour-and-a-half before kickoff.

Chargers S Derwin James is inactive for today's game against the Giants. He suffered a hamstring injury at some point late in the week that never showed up on the team website's injury report. Alohi Gilman should get the start in his place.

Chargers HC Brandon Staley says EDGE Joey Bosa cleared concussion testing during Sunday's win over the Bengals, the Los Angeles Times. Despite no concussion, Staley said he chose to hold Bosa out the rest of the game for the safety of the player, given Bosa's concussion history. (He suffered 2 in the 2nd half of last season.) That's a refreshing decision in favor of a player's safety. We'd bet on Bosa being back on the field for next Sunday's game against the Giants, but we'll watch to confirm.

Chargers EDGE Joey Bosa left Sunday's game against the Bengals with a concussion. It's a particularly worrisome situation for Bosa, who suffered a pair of concussions last November and December. We'll see how he fares this week, but you should probably expect him to miss at least the Week 14 game.

The Chargers will be activating EDGE Joey Bosa from the COVID list and expect him to play in Sunday night's game against the Steelers.

Chargers HC Brandon Staley said Wednesday that EDGE Joey Bosa is on the COVID list merely as a close contact and that he has so far tested negative. If that continues this week, he'll be ready to play Sunday night against the Steelers. We've added him to the Week 11 IDP rankings.

Chargers LB Drue Tranquill has landed on the COVID list and will miss Sunday's game against the Vikings. His place in the lineup will be taken by Kenneth Murray, who returns from IR. Murray missed the past 5 games with an ankle injury. The Los Angeles Times reports that Murray is expected to be activated Saturday.

Chargers DE Joey Bosa (ankle) and S Nasir Adderley (ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. HC Brandon Staley said he expects Bosa to play, despite missing Friday's practice with his injury. Adderley is expected to be a game-time decision. We'll update the status for each ahead of the 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff.

Chargers LB Drue Tranquill (chest) is active or today's game against the Patriots.

Chargers LB Drue Tranquill (chest) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. We'll check his status Sunday afternoon, but Tranquill isn't a high-level IDP option even if active. S Nasir Adderley is good to go after missing the last game with a hip injury. He practiced in full all week and didn't appear on the final injury report.

The Chargers have ruled LB Drue Tranquill out for Sunday's game at Baltimore with a chest injury. S Nasir Adderley is questionable with a hip injury. We'll update his status Sunday morning. Tranquill's absence should make Kyzir White a good bet to lead Chargers LBs in playing time and tackles.

The Chargers on Monday placed LB Kenneth Murray on IR. He sustained an ankle injury in Saturday's practice that initially had him questionable for Monday night's game against the Raiders. The team then downgraded him to out on Sunday. Getting him on IR ahead of their Week 4 game starts the counter earlier for Murray to return, and we're guessing it'll be a short-term stay. That said, Murray was struggling before the injury. He's fine to drop for immediate help in most redraft IDP leagues.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Murray will "likely" be back after 3 games.

The Chargers have downgraded LB Kenneth Murray (ankle) to out or Monday night's game against the Raiders. Murray shouldn't have been in your IDP plans anyway, after playing just 51% of the snaps in Week 3. Kyzir White is the top option among Chargers LBs if you still have a spot to fill in your Week 4 lineup.

Chargers LB Kenneth Murray suffered an ankle injury in Saturday's practice and is questionable for Monday night's game against the Raiders. A healthy Murray played just 51% of the snaps in Week 3, so he should be easy to leave out of your Week 4 IDP lineup. Kyzir White becomes a better play, after leading Chargers LBs in snaps last week.

Chargers S Derwin James left Sunday's game at Kansas City with a separated shoulder, but the issue didn't keep him out long. “Derwin is like, ‘Yeah, my shoulder just dislocated,’ acting like it wasn’t anything,” teammate Joey Bosa told the Los Angeles Times on Monday. “But his shoulder actually came out of the socket and he just popped it back in and came running right back out on the field.” James wound up missing just 7 of 79 defensive snaps for the game. And it looks like IDP fantasy players have nothing to worry about going forward.
