Chiefs vs Chargers injury report for NFL Week 7 game

After beating the Minnesota Vikings in week 6, the Kansas City Chiefs players are preparing themselves to face off against the Los Angeles Chargers on Oct. 22 at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. After losing by one point in week 1, the Chiefs won all five of their next games, and they are undoubtedly favorites against the Chargers.

However, the Chargers are in the third spot of the AFC West with a 2-3 mark, and after going down to the Dallas Cowboys in week 5, the upcoming game will be a do-or-die situation for them to keep alive the playoff hope. With this highly anticipated encounter, let’s take a closer look at the injury reports of both teams.
