Lessons from Chargers preseason loss against Saints - William Struthers
The running back room is still without Melvin Gordon, but they had a decent showing on Sunday, especially considering their offensive line wasn’t much help. With Justin Jackson and Austin Ekeler locking up the first and second string spots, a lot of people expected Detrez Newsome to be the third player to round out the group; instead, Troymaine Pope showed that might not be the case.

Coach Anthony Lynn was asked why the former Miami product didn’t see the field until late in the game and he told reporters that he was playing in the fourth quarter with younger players because he’s a little rusty coming off the knee injury and the team is trying to get him more reps to get him caught up, per ESPN’s Eric D. Williams.

A third-round selection by the Chargers last year out of NC State, Jones dropped 20 pounds this offseason and is playing fast and physical inside for the Chargers. Jones should help the Bolts' desire to generate more of an interior pass rush. "The sky's the limit of what he can be," Chargers defensive end Melvin Ingram said. "You see him do moves at times and the way he practices -- he has the chance to be very special. He's gonna show the world."
