Vincent Jackson Status Update: Chargers WR Is Healthy, Will Start

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson has struggled with nagging injuries all season, but he practiced a full week for the first time all season this week. Jackson was shut down by Darrell Revis last week agains the Jets, but will get a bit of an easier match up against the Chiefs secondary.

Even with his injuries, Jackson has been having a solid season so far with over 400 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns. With the Chargers getting tight end Antonio Gates back for the second week in a row, that should help out Jackson. Gates should draw more coverage in the middle of the field and attention in the redzone, leaving Jackson with some better match ups in the secondary.
