Los Angeles Chargers Daily Links: Philip Rivers looked excellent in limited game action

Your daily dose of Los Angeles Chargers news & notes from around the web.

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Chargers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Chargers' Hunter Henry Could Return In 2018? - Dallas Robinson
Without Henry available, the Chargers will begin the season with Virgil Green as their top tight end, while Sean Culkin, Braedon Bowman, Je’Ron Hamm, Cole Hunt, and Ben Johnson are also on the roster. However, Los Angeles is still negotiating with franchise icon Antonio Gates, who reportedly won’t play for any team besides the Chargers.

Hunter Henry unlikely to return for Chargers in 2018, but not ruled out - Eric Williams
"It's just about executing and being efficient," River said. "No pre-snap penalties -- none of that stuff -- but there's an element of preparing, I think more so for me. I like to do it not so much as it is preparing to go win the game, but more so to get me into that in-season mode of preparing -- watching the pressures, watching the third downs, going through and studying the game play sheet.

Rivers, Chargers look sharp early in 24-14 win over Seahawks - Greg Beacham
JJ Jones returned a punt 72 yards for a touchdown late in the first half, and Mike Williams caught a 25-yard touchdown pass from Geno Smith in the second half of a solid performance by the Chargers (1-1) in the preseason home opener of their second season at compact StubHub Center.

Philip Rivers Leads First-Team Offense to Masterful Start - Ricky Henne
Head Coach Anthony Lynn opted to keep Rivers and the starters in for another drive, and it got off to a good start when number 17 evaded the rush and hit Gordon, who then ran upfield for a 16-yard gain. The running back gained another first down with his feet. Unfortunately, the drive ended when Rivers’ pass for Allen on 3rd-and-6 fell incomplete despite what looked like sure-fire defensive pass interference.

Seahawks suffer 24-14 defeat, fall to 0-2 in 2018 preseason - The Great Mookie Alexander
Just like last week, the Seahawks defense had the change to get the ball back by making a three-and-out stop, only for the opposition’s run game to get the conversion. Detrez Newsome broke through for a 31-yard gain that put the Chargers into field goal range, and Roberto Aguayo iced the game shortly thereafter.
