Chargers hurting at receiver

The San Diego Chargers' offense is facing another obstacle as it tries to get out of a slump.

Receiver Eddie Royal (hamstring) is doubtful and fellow receiver Robert Meachem (hamstring) is questionable to face visiting Kansas City on Thursday night. This isn’t going to help an offense that has not scored a touchdown in the past six quarters.

Newly signed receivers Danario Alexander and Seyi Ajirotutu both should get a chance to see some action against the Chiefs.

For Kansas City, defensive end Glenn Dorsey (calf) and cornerback Stanford Routt (hamstring) are both questionable to play. They were both limited in practice Wednesday.
