SAN DIEGO -- Chargers outside linebacker Jarret Johnson hopes to play against Kansas City on Sunday, six days after having surgery on his left hand.

Johnson is listed as doubtful. He was hurt during a loss at Miami on Sunday.

The Chargers (4-6) have lost three straight games and are essentially playing for their season.

That's why Johnson hopes to play despite having his hand in a cast.

Says Johnson: "This is a very important game for us and everybody needs to carry their weight."

Also Friday, outside linebacker Melvin Ingram said he won't play Sunday. He just returned to practice this week as he recovers from an ACL tear.
