Reinforcements arrive for Chargers D - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
Veteran defensive backs Cassius Vaughn, a cornerback, and Brandian Ross, a safety, were signed to the roster Wednesday. Both could be active this Sunday in Denver. Of the two, Vaughn has more familiarity with his new setting.

Rivers believes Chargers just need to reload - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
Thirteen starting quarterbacks have gone down with injury this year. Not every quarterback ages like Tom Brady, 38. For all of Rivers' talents -- quick release, fast thinker, large body, resilience and toughness -- former Chargers coach Norv Turner often said luck also plays a role in such a games-started streak.

2015 Team Player Awards Announced - Ricky Henne
In a season where the offensive line was decimated by injury, Barksdale was a stalwart as the only lineman to start every game.  Signed in late May, the 6-5, 326-pound veteran has been a rock at right tackle, and even shifted over to left when called upon.

Former Pro Bowler Kassim Osgood "Retiring a Charger" - Ricky Henne
"What makes the Chargers special is everyone on the team.  The front office is phenomenal, from the PR staff to the equipment guys and everyone else.  It just felt truly like a family atmosphere there. And it was really good interacting with the fans, who are some of the craziest around!  It was a community environment where you could really blossom as a young player and learn how to become a true professional."
