Orlando Franklin "Playing this week"

Orlando Franklin traveled with the Chargers to Green Bay and ran up and down the sidelines before the game but was inactive for his third straight game since suffering a high ankle sprain versus the Minnesota Vikings.

He made no bones about whether he expects to play on Sunday versus the division rival Oakland Raiders.

“I’m playing this week.”

That would be a boost for Philip Rivers and the depleted offensive line, which has lost three starters over the course of the season. A lot however, remains to be seen about the status of wide receiver Keenan Allen, who looked to be on course to for a record day with 14 catches and 157 yards before a hip injury forced him out of the game in the third quarter.

On Monday, Allen said he was feeling much better.

“I’m feeling better than I was at the end of the game. Got in, got treatment, just trying to work and get back. My mindset is definitely going on Sunday, we’ll see what happens. It was tough watching the team try to grind it out, go get a victory and not being able to help. That sucks.”
