Chargers get down to 75-player limit - Bill Williamson
It was previously reported that receiver/returner Roscoe Parrish was cut. He was out played by Micheal Spurlock, who should make the team. The other interesting name cut was running back Michael Hayes. There was a thought early in the preseason that he could make the team.

Parrish among first cuts - Scott Bair
Eddie Royal has an Roscoe Parrish jersey hanging in his locker from the receiver's days with the Buffalo Bills. On Monday, that was all that remained of the free-agent signee at Chargers Park.

Chargers QB Philip Rivers to play Thursday - Bill Williamson
The Chargers were without three starting offensive linemen, so keeping Rivers out was the smart move. Getting him some work against the 49ers is also the smart move, because it would not be wise for Rivers to face Oakland on Sept. 10 without the benefit of playing for three-plus weeks.

ANIMATED: Harrison Smith's Big Hit Could Lead To Big Fine - Scott Schroeder
Smith was noticed for something not quite so positive during the Vikings preseason game on Friday night, however, as he laid a huge hit on San Diego Chargers wide receiver Mike Willie. It was enough to get his Vikings' teammates excited, as the GIF below shows, but it also might end in Smith picking up the first fine of his career.

Ingram unlikely to be sidelined long - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
"It's what we hoped it was, what it looked like it was when he came to the sideline," coach Norv Turner said. "He's a day-to-day guy. Hopefully, he'll be back and able to play in this game Thursday."

Turner 'encouraged' by O-line health - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
"It may sound crazy, but I was really impressed with the physical style that our offensive linemen played," Turner said. "We didn't play very well together. We've got a lot of guys that have to get on the same page. But physically, there were really some good performances. That's a starting point."

Vincent Jackson brings bang to the Bucs - Kevin Acee (UT$)
Meet the new Vincent Jackson, same as the old Vincent Jackson, just a little more of a sage and seemingly a lot happier in a place he’s very much wanted.
