Chargers Vs. Broncos Inactives: Antonio Gates, Jonathan Wilhite Out; Brian Dawkins, Marcus Thomas To Play

The Denver Broncos might had an issue at safety if Brian Dawkins wasn't ready to play on Sunday, but his ankle is feeling well enough that the Broncos have kept him active for Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers. The only real surprise on the Broncos' inactive list is cornerback Jonathan Wilhite. He was ill all week and was listed as questionable. The Broncos will need to install someone else as the blitzing cornerback and Champ Bailey is going to be back in the lineup.

For the Chargers, tight end Antonio Gates leads the team's inactives, but this was expected. He likely won't return for a couple of more weeks. Now the Broncos will need to contend just with Vincent Jackson catching passes from Philip Rivers.
