After missing Weeks 3-6 and the kicking game being greatly affected, the team also designated him to return Wednesday, which is a sign that he’s progressing well from his hip injury. Offensive starters A.J. Cann (foot/ knee), DJ Chark (ankle), and Andrew Norwell (ankle) were also limited. Cann especially will be one to watch as his backup, Ben Bartch, also was on the injury report for a shoulder injury.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are getting some help for their defense. The team announced Wednesday that defensive end Aaron Lynch decided to come out of retirement and was reinstated from their reserve/retired list to their exempt/commissioner permission list. Lynch, who had signed a one-year contract with the Jaguars on May 5, was expected to provide leadership and experience to a young defensive front that includes Pro Bowler Josh Allen and first-round pick K'Lavon Chaisson, but he voluntarily walked away in August after a few days of training camp.
Anthony Lynn and the Los Angeles Chargers are rested and ready to go after their bye week. The Chargers had some of their injured starters return to the practice field Wednesday as preparations ramp up for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but this remains a banged up team that is looking to snap a four-game losing streak. Lynn is hoping defensive end Melvin Ingram and defensive tackle Justin Jones can return this week.
