Chargers Lose Tolzien, Fill Six of Eight Spots on Practice Squad

You may have spent the last two days barbecuing or laying on the beach, but A.J. Smith and the Chargers coaches have been hard at work cutting players and then signing some of them back.

They filled eight of the six practice squad spots with guys that they cut. Here's the list:

 

 

Scott Tolzien, the Wisconsin QB that everyone at Chargers Park was impressed with, did so well against the 49ers that they claimed him off of waivers. Center Colin Baxter was claimed by the Jets and Seyi Ajirotutu lands with Rod Chudzinski, Ron Rivera and Legedu Naanee with the Carolina Panthers. Ogemdi Nwagbuo has not yet been signed.

I don't pay enough attention to practice squads to know what to make of this group. I know that the Chargers usually try and have one guy from each position group (Oline, Dline, RB, WR/TE, LB) and that's what they have here. I wasn't impressed by Bryant or Taylor, and have to imagine that they're at risk of being replace at some point during the season.
