Injury roundup: Chargers S Derwin James Jr. (ankle) game-time decision vs. Chiefs

Los Angeles Chargers safety Derwin James Jr. (ankle) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per sources.

James was limited in Thursday's practice due to tweaking his ankle. However, the three-time Pro Bowler sat out of Friday's practice, leading to a questionable designation. In four games this season, James has recorded 27 tackles and one tackle for loss.

Los Angeles will be shorthanded on defense with fellow safety Alohi Gilman (toe) and linebacker Amen Ogbongbemiga (hamstring) out for Week 7. As for the Chiefs, wide receiver Justin Watson will not play in the divisional game due to a elbow injury.

The Chargers and Chiefs kick off at 4:25 p.m. ET.
