Eddie Royal fantasy prospects dim after missing practice Tuesday

Thearon W. Henderson

Eddie Royal missed practice Tuesday for the San Diego Chargers due to a hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Eddie Royal missed practice Tuesday for the San Diego Chargers due to a hamstring injury, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. He was able to do some light stretching and running along on the side.

Royal was inactive for Week 8 against the Cleveland Browns due to the same injury. With the Chargers playing on Thursday night against the Kansas City Chiefs, there is a good chance Royal will be forced to sit out again.

Fantasy Impact: Royal hasn't officially been ruled out for Week 9, but with a short turnaround from Sunday to Thursday, expect the wide receiver to be inactive. Not that he would have done much for you fantasy-wise, anyway. Royal has yet to catch more than three passes in a game this season, or go over 31 yards.
