San Diego Chargers Training Camp Notes: August 2, 2015

New, comments

Let's all over-evaluate talent in practice as we break down the San Diego Chargers Training Camp today.

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

There were a lot of bumps and bruises today so let's try to make sense of everything that happened today during practice.

BUT good news followed after practice wrapped up.

Not too long after, Te'o returned to drills.

This is the injury that looked the worst initially.

What we know so far since we have no word on Ricardo Mathews yet.

As for practice, the intensity picked up

But then halfway through practice the urgency died.

One big standout today was the UDFA Wide Receiver out of Western Oregon Tyrell Williams

Branden Oliver is putting together a strong camp.

Joe Barksdale got a lot of work today with the first team at Right Guard after Orlando Franklin left practice and Johnnie Troutman flipped over to Left Guard. Barksdale was impressive.

It also seemed to bring some camaraderie between D.J. Fluker and Joe Barksdale as they were going over play calls and some talk of technique.

Craig Mager had his best day of camp so far. Though he had completions thrown on him, he was much better in coverage, especially when he was lined up in the slot.

Other news and notes:

This was from early on in the day before the Orlando Franklin injury.

This was fun.

-Rookies Denzel Perryman and Craig Mager looked more comfortable today and both had probably their best days of camp.

-Coaches were really stressing technique with DE Darius Philon, making him do drills multiple times until he got it right. He looks to have the power and get-off but the coaches are pushing him, hoping he can put it all together.

-With Chris Watt out today, Trevor Robinson got to work with the first unit at Center and behind him at the position was Michael Huey and Kenny Wiggins.

-There were four long outside runs today. Two by Branden Oliver, one by Danny Woodhead and the other was by UDFA Running back Dreamius Smith. Multiple Outside Linebackers over pursued and didn't secure the edge causing the big gains. "Secure the edge" was yelled out by the players before almost every snap in drills going forward making sure it didn't happen again.
