Chargers vs. Steelers: Chargers offensive line dealing with injuries

The Chargers are sliding, and things could be all-the-more difficult on Sunday against the Steelers, as they could be without up to three offensive linemen due to injuries.

USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers face a reeling San Diego Chargers team in Week 14 on Sunday, and while the Steelers are getting healthier -- quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is expected to start -- the Chargers could be without up to three offensive linemen because of injuries.

In a report from Dave Bryan of the Steelers Depot on Friday, tackle Jeromey Clary (with a knee injury), guard Tyronne Green (a hamstring injury) and tackle Mike Harris (with an ankle ailment) all did not practice on Thursday and are not expected to play in Sunday's contest.

In their last three games, the Steelers' defense has racked up a total of 10 sacks.

Also on San Diego's injury report were wide receiver Eddie Royal and linebacker Donald Butler, neither of whom participated in the team's practice on Thursday. It was the second day of practice missed this week for both players, and their respective statuses are uncertain.
