Can you name any WR for Colts or Chargers?

You know the old saying, you cannot tell the players without a program? The Chargers and Colts will be putting that to the test this week. At least at the receiving corps.

Colts WR Austin Collie has already been ruled out for this week, and QB Peyton Manning will be looking to household names such as TE Jacob Tamme and WR Blair White. Guys who just jumped off the board early in your fantasy drafts. Or not.

The Chargers have just as many injuries, too.

Chargers TE Antonio Gates (foot) missed practice on Friday and is being listed as questionable. Gates had limited participation in practice on Thursday, but could not go on Friday. Gates told reporters that he was sore after Thursday’s workout. Backup TE Randy McMichael (hamstring) was limited in practice and is listed as probable.

WR Patrick Crayton (wrist) has already been ruled out, while RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) missed practice and is listed as doubtful. RB Mike Tolbert is again a great option, especially against the Colts.

WR Malcom Floyd (hamstring) was limited in practice and WR Legedu Naanee (hamstring) was a full participation on Friday, both are listed as questionable.

WR Vincent Jackson will return this week, and despite being in great shape, there are concerns about his football condition. But he certainly figures to see his share of targets.

But does any of this even matter to Manning and Chargers QB Philip Rivers? Both have been posting awesome stats with some nearly unrecognizable receivers.
