The San Diego Chargers scored 38 points without running back Ryan Mathews and Antonio Gates last week. It looks like they'll get both stars back this week. They participated in practice Wednesday as they prepare to face the Atlanta Falcons.
San Diego is slipping under the radar at this point at 2-0, but that won't be the case if they can beat Atlanta on Sunday. Here are the other injuries you should know from Wednesday's official report:
3. The Detroit Lions will get cornerback Chris Houston back from injury, and running back Mikel LeShoure back from suspension. The additions are much needed at positions where Detroit is struggling. The team might also get cornerback Bill Bentley back.
4. New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller (hamstring) is still out of practice. Cornerback Darrelle Revis (concussion) was limited. It's unclear if Revis will be ready to face the Dolphins. (If ever there's a team you don't need a shutdown corner against, this is it.)
6. The Pittsburgh Steelers had a lot of potential starters out of practice Wednesday. The full list: RB Jonathan Dwyer (toe), OT Marcus Gilbert (groin), LB James Harrison (knee), TE Heath Miller (abdomen), S Troy Polamalu (calf), WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) and WR Mike Wallace (groin). We'd be surprised if Harrison or Polamalu play this week.
