For the Chargers, receiver Eddie Royal is expected to play despite missing practice all week long and being listed as questionable with the toe injury he’s battled since October.
The Bengals had the pleasure of not seeing him in San Diego earlier this year, and his impact on the game could be significant as he’s going against a very young and raw Kirkpatrick.
The Bengals will undoubtedly be focusing their coverage on Keenan Allen, so expect Royal to draw a number of targets.
