San Diego does not have three starters on the offensive line, as they will have backups at left tackle, left guard and center.
The game could come down to how well the Browns pressure Rivers, who ranked fifth in the league coming into today with 890 passing yards. Rivers is completing 74.5 percent, and has a rating of 100.5.
The move with Haden was a bit of a surprise. He clearly was in discomfort Friday when he met the media, but he talked about fighting through -- especially given it was Rivers the Browns are facing.
The ripple effect could put Justin Gilbert on the field more, but the Browns last week went to safety Jordan Poyer as their fourth corner. It’s possible Poyer could play nickelback as well and cover the slot receiver.
Consider Williams being out as well, and the Browns' situation with injuries may have a greater effect on the game than the Chargers.
