Chargers wide receiver Dontrelle Inman had three receptions on five targets for 88 yards in Sunday's win against the Browns after both Malcom Floyd and Stevie Johnson had to exit the game with injuries.
Floyd suffered a concussion and Johnson pulled a hamstring in this game, leaving Keenan Allen and Inman the only two healthy wide receivers for the afternoon. Inman knows the offense and has performed well in spot duty before, so he should be productive if he forced to play a larger role in the coming weeks, but the injuries to Floyd and Johnson obviously need to be monitored closely.
Should Jones miss any time, Branden Oliver and Keenan Allen are likely next in line to take over kickoff and punt return duties.
The coaches opened the second half with Inman in the lineup and the team down 28-7, and the little-used receiver was able to reward the gamble with an excellent half of football, picking up all his receptions in the second half. It was the first time this season Inman had even seen a target in a game, but he was able to pick up three first downs, including one on a crucial fourth-and-10 with less than a minute left in the fourth quarter and his team down seven points. The Chargers tied the game two plays later before winning in overtime.
Inman may have earned himself a significant role in his team's Week 17 matchup with the Chiefs, especially if Keenan Allen is unable to return to action.
Carrethers had already been ruled out for Sunday's game so his absence won't be unexpected. The team does have all three of its questionable players available for action, as linebacker
