Chargers at Falcons Week 9 Injury Report: Friday

The Chargers have six players who've been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

COSTA MESA – The Chargers completed their final practice of the week and released game designations ahead of the Week 9 matchup against the Falcons.

Eight players were given a game designation, and six of which have been ruled out. WR Keenan Allen (hamstring), K Dustin Hopkins (hamstring), TE Donald Parham Jr. (hamstring), OLB Chris Rumph (knee), DL Jerry Tillery (back) and WR Mike Williams (ankle) will all not play.

WR DeAndre Carter (illness) and LB Amen Ogbongbemiga (groin) are listed as questionable.

The Falcons ruled out cornerback A.J. Terrell (hamstring) and guard Elijah Wilkinson (knee). Safety Erik Harris (ankle) was a new add to the injury report and he is considered questionable.

Meanwhile, running back Cordarrelle Patterson's game status has yet to be determined. He practiced each day this week for the first time since his five-week stint on injured reserve. He could make his return against the Chargers, as Falcons coach Arthur Smith said they'll make a decision on Saturday to state whether or not Patterson will play.
