The Los Angeles coach appeared agitated over a question about the wide receiver s status.
Wide receiver Quentin Johnston's playing time in Sunday night's loss to the Ravens was a big topic at Chargers head coach Brandon Staley's press conference on Monday.
A frustrated Brandon Staley on Monday pushed back when questioned about why Chargers receiver Quentin Johnston did not return to Sunday's game against the Ravens despite being cleared, insisting that the reason was "not because of a lack of confidence."
The Chargers benched WR Quentin Johnston in Week 12. The rookie suffered a minor rib injury against Baltimore, but that wasn t the reason he played only 29 snaps. It wasn t that he couldn t go back into the game, it s just that we didn t feel like through the flow of the game, with where he was that it was the right thing to go back into the game, HC Brandon Staley said after the loss. We don t expect Johnston to be fantasy viable for the remainder of 2023.
Chargers WR Jalen Guyton (groin) is "likely" to play vs. the Ravens tonight, "barring any pre-game setbacks," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Guyton was limited in practice all week after the Packers loss. The last time we saw Guyton in Week 10, he played 79% of the Chargers' offensive snaps and ranked third on the team with six targets. Guyton figures to step back into a prominent role as long as that groin isn't an issue, but he'd be a desperation season-long fantasy play. Guyton's return is a ding to WR Quentin Johnston's fantasy value.
