Bosa's mom: 'Wish we pulled an Eli Manning' - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
A source authenticated a Facebook comment left by Cheryl Bosa on Sunday afternoon. In it, she voices frustration at the situation. "It bums me out for him so much," she wrote to a friend. "Wish we pulled an Eli Manning on draft day."

Chargers intern struck in PB hit-and-run - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
"We're asking for everyone to keep him and his family in their prayers right now," said Bill Johnston, Chargers director of public relations. "He hasn't been with the team very long, but he's made a lot of good friends here. A lot of people are praying for him."

Joey Bosa's Mom: 'Wish we pulled an Eli Manning' - Michael Lombardo
Manning is still a hated figure in San Diego, where the perception is he felt he was "too good" to play for the Chargers.

QB Mike Bercovici shines in Chargers' scrimmage at Qualcomm - Eric Williams
“I always grew up idolizing Philip Rivers,” Bercovici said. “At the time there was no team in Los Angeles, so the thing to do was to get up early and take the train to San Diego to watch your favorite NFL team growing up. So it’s pretty awesome to be here."

Chargers' D.J. Fluker more comfortable in second year at guard - Eric Williams
“So far, so good,” Fluker said. “I’m getting more comfortable there. The communication is the key for us -- being able to echo the calls out and everything. Other than that, I think everything has gone smoothly.”

Branden Oliver Looks for Blueprint Year - Ricky Henne
As McCoy alluded, the 5-8, 208-pound running back has been up to his usual tricks thus far in training camp. One of Oliver’s trademark moves is the manner in which he finishes each carry.  The 25-year old constantly keeps his feet moving, and nearly always falls forward at the end of his runs.  As he explained, it’s a habit he formed at a young age when he didn’t have the same athleticism he does now.
