However, it seems Cesaire is on track to play Sunday in Tennessee. But his status is worth watching during the game. Especially with one of Cesaire's strengths being his knack for batting down passes at the line of scrimmage -- he had two in last Sunday's win at Kansas City.
But with a freshly repaired thumb, that might change.
If Cesaire has to be spelled early or more often, Ryon Bingham gets the call and he has been playing well of late. He has 1.5 sacks in seeing more playing time with Luis Castillo down. Both Cesaire and Bingham have played well while being asked to do more during Castillo's absence.
Castillo is hopeful he can return Dec. 24 for the game against Denver.
But first comes Tennessee and mobile quarterback Vince Young. The Chargers will need a solid rotation of defensive linemen to keep them fresh in chasing Young. Having Cesaire available would be a big help.
--OLB Shawne Merriman (calf) didn't practice on Thursday and has yet to work this week. He will likely test it Friday. He should play Sunday.
--RB Darren Sproles (knee) didn't practice. He will try to go on Friday.
--C Nick Hardwick (foot) was limited in his participation. He's pretty sore, but will go Sunday.
--DE Luis Castillo (ankle) didn't work but the team is upbeat over his rehab after surgery. He's shooting for the second-to-last regular season game as his return date.
--LG Kris Dielman continues to practice and play through a sore knee.
