Chargers CB J.C. Jackson hints at playing vs. Chiefs

Star cornerback J.C. Jackson could be making his debut as a Charger against the Chiefs on Thursday night.

Jackson, who’s listed as questionable, posted a picture on his Instagram story this morning of him during training camp with the caption: “Y’all know what time it is!!”

Jackson did not play in the season opener against the Raiders due to an ankle procedure he had in August.

“I think he’s headed in the right direction, but I think there is still a lot to be decided before game time on Thursday night,” Staley said.

Having Jackson back for primetime will be critical for a defensive backfield that will be tasked with covering a plethora of pass-catchers, including the talented tight end Travis Kelce.

We will know if Jackson is indeed playing about 90 minutes before kickoff when the inactive list comes out.
