Eddie Royal and Ryan Mathews to play for Chargers

The San Diego Chargers will have both Eddie Royal and Ryan Mathews on the field when they play against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

While Mathews was listed as probable and Royal as questionable neither seemed in danger of missing the first round of the playoffs.

With the weather being a problem, Mathews could see 20-plus carries on Sunday. He finished the season with 1,255 yards rushing (4.4 avg) and six touchdowns on the ground. He added another receiving touchdown on 26 catches.

Royal caught 47 passes in the regular season for 631 yards and eight touchdowns.

Inactive for the Chargers are NT Sean Lissemore, S Brandon Taylor, WR Lavelle Hawkins, CB Marcus Cromartie, OT Kenny Wiggins, OL Steve Schilling, and QB Brad Sorensen.
