 Cincinnati,  OH  (SportsNetwork.com) - San  Diego Chargers wide receiver Eddie
 Royal  is active  for  Sunday's  AFC Wild-Card  Round  against the  Cincinnati
 Bengals.
 
 Royal caught three passes for 34 yards and a touchdown during San Diego's Week
 17  win that vaulted the team into the playoffs, but the 27-year-old speedster
 did  not  practice all week  due to  a lingering toe  injury and was listed as
 questionable on the final injury report.
 
 Running  back  Ryan Mathews (ankle) is  in the lineup despite missing practice
 on Wednesday and Thursday and being limited during Friday's session.
 
 Defensive lineman Sean Lissemore will not play due to a shoulder injury.
 
 As  for the  Bengals,  tight ends  Tyler Eifert  (neck)  and Jermaine  Gresham
 (hamstring)  are back  in the lineup after they both missed the regular-season
 finale against Baltimore.
 
 Cornerback  Terence  Newman, as expected, will  not play due to a knee injury,
 while defensive end Wallace  Gilberry (concussion) and center Kyle Cook (foot)
 are active despite being listed as questionable.
