Derwin James (ankle) active vs. Chiefs

Chargers S Derwin James (ankle) is active for today's game against the Chiefs. We knocked him down the Week 7 rankings for the injury anyway, and there's clearly risk to using James in IDP lineups. But he's available if you need him.

Chargers S Derwin James is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He suffered an ankle injury Thursday and then missed Friday's workout. That bodes ill for James' chances this weekend, but we haven't yet seen any specifics beyond the questionable tag. We've moved James down our Week 7 DB rankings and will watch for more on his outlook. S Alohi Gilman (toe) has been ruled out for the third straight game.
