WR Eddie Royal back at Chargers practice

After missing about three weeks of action due to a strained groin, San Diego Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal @EddieRoyalWR returned to practice Wednesday. Head coach Norv Turner said Royal looked like his usual fast self.
Royal and quarterback Philip Rivers will now try to continue what they started at the beginning of training camp.
"Philip and Eddie got that chemistry real fast," Turner told the North County Times. "Eddie is a bit more the style receiver that we're used to. He's very comfortable with our system and our routes, and Philip was very comfortable throwing the ball to him."

Fantasy Analysis:

Royal is probably not worth drafting in fantasy leagues, but it is critical that the Chargers' slot man stays in the lineup. With Vincent Brown out with a broken ankle and Robert Meachem not yet on the same page with his QB, Royal's presence could be a big help to Rivers. Right now, he needs more guys like Antonio Gates -- guys he can trust. Rivers is FFToolbox's No. 10 QB. I fully agree with that ranking.
