Chargers consider Melvin Gordon at kick returner - Eric Williams
"We’ll see how it goes," Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said. "I think that’s something we’re going to discuss over time. I’m not going to say definitely no or definitely yes yet. We’ll see. That’s going to be a battle back there."

Chargers TE Hunter Henry not just a pass-catcher, he can also block - Eric Williams
"If they can't key on you run or pass, it's really hard for the defense to cover you, especially when they think it's a run then you bust out and you're passing," Henry said. "Once you get a step on them, you can run past them."
