Chargers WR Royal, LB Johnson active against Skins

Posted: Updated:

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Receiver Eddie Royal is active for the San Diego Chargers against the Washington Redskins despite a hurt toe injury that kept him out of practice all week.

Royal enters Sunday's game with a career-high six touchdown catches this season.

Also active for San Diego is linebacker Jarret Johnson, who returns after missing two games with a hamstring injury. He's tied for the team lead with three sacks.

The Chargers are without linebacker Donald Butler (groin) and guard Chad Rinehart (toe).

Tight end Fred Davis is inactive again for Washington, which gets both starting safeties back: Reed Doughty returns after missing one game with a concussion and safety Brandon Meriweather returns from a one-game suspension for helmet-to-helmet hits.

Redskins safety Jose Gumbs is out with an ankle injury.

    Keenan Allen really did think about quitting last summer."It was just a thought," the San Diego Chargers' top wide receiver said. "But it was tough."Allen was referring to his initial training camp, when the third-round pick from California could do little right.
