Welcome to the Snap Report, a weekly feature where we'll look at the players involved in each offensive and defensive snap and track how players earn and lose playing time as the year continues. These snap counts come from the NFL. Ok, here's a look at the offensive snaps through week two.
Here we can clearly see Danny Woodhead taking playing time away from Ronnie Brown, something Charger fans were no doubt expecting upon the free agent signing. Looks like the staff was being patient with Woodhead after his preseason injury but I would expect this trend to continue for the foreseeable future. The injury to Malcolm Floyd creates a huge opportunity for Keenan Allen to make an impression in his debut season.
And here's the snap report for the defense.
Those not impressed with Bront Bird's first week performance were probably pretty happy during week two. Bird snaps dropped almost 70 percent from week one to week two, with the newly signed Reggie Walker filling most of the void. Someone to keep an eye one could be Jarius Wynn, who has put together two relatively solid performances to start the season. Richard Marshall was not impressive in pass coverage during week one and it cost him playing time in week two. Johnny Patrick was the beneficiary of this demotion, however it's doubtful his PFF pass coverage rating of -2.3 during week two alleviated the coaching staff's concern with the cornerback situation.
Which players do you think have made the most of their playing time so far?
