Amidst the news of playoff berths

 and coach firings http://www.thechargerslockerroom.com/authentic-darius-philon-jersey , Monday has brought a significant piece of news to Chargers fans: Hunter Henry is on schedule to suit up for this weekend’s game.The other side of that good news is that Melvin Gordon is also expected to play.Austin Ekeler also did a great job yesterday, and that solidifies a very impressive offensive corps. The offense is looking to be at nearly full strength for the first time this season, and it couldn’t come at a better moment.Henry suffered a noncontact ACL tear during organized team activities in May and has missed the entire regular season. Following the injury, the Chargers signed off-and-on love-interest tight end Antonio Gates to a one-year contract. That contract, by the way, wasn’t signed until the week before the season began, so it truly has been a rollercoaster of concern for the Chargers faithful this season.Gates performed admirably through the season Womens Adrian Phillips Jersey , and he lead the Chargers’ tight ends in catches (28), receiving yards (333) and touchdowns (2).Henry should make quite an impact if he’s at 75% strength or better. In his rookie season, he scored the second-most touchdowns by a rookie tight end in the last decade (8, only behind Rob Gronkowski), and scored the fifth most touchdowns by a rookie tight end in NFL history.In 2017, he finished the season with 45 receptions for 579 yards and four touchdowns. He left the season in late December with a kidney laceration, but was expected to be a force this year until his ACL injury derailed so many plans.We will see how well he practices this week Drew Kaser Jersey , and all eyes will be on the field this weekend as he adds another valuable weapon to Philip Rivers’ impressive arsenal.-Jason “Love me some tight ends” Michaels Michael "The Money Badger" Badgleycame in with that "Jersey Confidence" as a rookie and not only won the kicking job for the Chargers, but went on to set multiple team records, as well.No matter..."

Well http://www.thechargerslockerroom.com/authentic-hunter-henry-jersey , it looks like fans can put an end to the praying and “I can’t watch this kick” moments. Badgley looks like he’s here to stay.Basic InfoHeight: 5-10Weight: 183College: Miami (FL)Experience: 1Years with team: 1Contract Status“Michael Badgley signed a 3 year, $1,710,000 contract with the Los Angeles Chargers, including an average annual salary of $570,000. In 2019, Badgley will earn a base salary of $570 Womens Joe Barksdale Jersey ,000, while carrying a cap hit of $570,000.” - Spotrac.comThe GoodAfter far too many years of allowing the kicker to decide the fate of the Chargers, the team may have finally, FINALLY found their savior. Badgley was arguably the biggest breath of fresh air in 2018 as he gave the Bolts some stability at a position that saw them host a league-high seven kickers across the 2016 and 2017 season.Badgley was ALMOST PERFECT in his first year as a NFL kicker. He went 15/16 with his only miss coming from 50+ yards. Not to mention the fact that he set the franchise record for longest made field goal at 59-freaking-yards. On extra points, he was just as efficient, missing only one of his 28 attempts after he signed with the Chargers.The BadThere’s really no reason to believe that things with Badgley will head south anytime soon. However Casey Hayward Jersey , without ignoring the last couple of years and the carousel of kickers that have come through this team, it’s hard not to tuck away a smidgen of pessimism just in case the dumpster gets set on fire again.Not many kickers come in as a rookie have the amount of success that Badgley had. It’s almost too good to be true at this point but that doesn’t mean we can’t just take it all in stride and enjoy it while it lasts.Odds of making the roster/What to expect in 2019He’s essentially a lock to make the roster at the moment. The Chargers did not bring in any competition for him and I would have been extremely surprised if they had. The punter spot is now the area with the biggest need for consistency and the Chargers took an obvious step in attempting to fix it by bringing in CFL-transplant Ty Long and former Notre Dame punter Tyler Newsome as a UDFA.I expect more of the same from the Money Badger until he shows otherwise. Maybe not perfection, but something pretty dang close.Fun fact: Badgley also set the team record for field goal percentage at 93.8% (minimum of 15 attempts).
