After a week of uncertainty caused by the wildfires, the San Diego Chargers announced today that they will play Sunday’s NFL game against the Houston Texans in San Diego as scheduled.

“Qualcomm Stadium will be ready for NFL football by this weekend,” San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders said in a release distributed by the Chargers. “The city will be able to provide sufficient public safety personnel to manage a professional football game without impeding ongoing wildfire recovery efforts. I informed the Chargers late Thursday that should they decide to play their game at Qualcomm this weekend, the stadium will be ready.”
