The starting offensive line from the beginning of the season remains unchanged with Trent Scott, Dan Feeney, Mike Pouncey, Michael Schofield, and Sam Tevi getting 100% of the offensive snaps. Forrest Lamp again got exactly 2 snaps, both as an extra lineman.
Obviously with Hunter Henry out Virgil Green saw his snaps increase from 26 in week 1 to 59 in week 2. Sean Culkin also saw a jump from 1 snap in week 1 to 16 in week 2. However overall, TEs played 9 less snaps combined than they did in week 1, and that’s with 4 more snaps on offense as a team overall.
The Chargers opted to run more multiple WR sets this week as every WR, with the exception of Mike Williams who played the same number of snaps at 41, played more snaps than they did in week 1. Travis Benjamin saw 14 more snaps and Dontrelle Inman saw 12 more than they did in week 1.
The Austin Ekeler/Justin Jackson work split stayed basically the same from week 1 with Ekeler getting 73% of the snaps (75% in week 1) and Jackson getting 27% this week (25% in week 1).
Brandon Facyson is still the plan at CB2. Facyson has been on the field for 100% of the defensive snaps since Mike Davis went down in week 1.
Melvin Ingram had a lighter workload this week, his snaps dropping from 60 in week 1 down to 50 in week 2. To make up for that Uchenna Nwosu saw his snaps double from 14 to 27.
The team also found more ways to get Rookie Jerry Tillery on the field as he saw a slight bump from 21 snaps in week 1 to 27 in week 2 despite the amount of defensive snaps dropping by 2 overall.
Rookie 2nd round pick Nassir Adderley also saw 1 snap on defense in week 2, up from 0 in week 1. Look for this number to increase substantially in week 3 with Adrian Phillips out for the foreseeable future after breaking his forearm.
Nick Dzubnar continues to be a featured piece on special teams, despite not having much impact other than a missed tackle. There’s really nothing else of note here other than Denzel Perryman saw 3 snaps on special teams, up from 1 in week 1. Not sure if that means he’s feeling healthier or they’re just trying to make him the highest paid special teamer in the league.
