Chargers decide to cancel scrimmage at SoFi Stadium

Following the lead of various franchises, the Chargers are canceling this Thursday’s scrimmage at SoFi Stadium.

NFL Combine - Day 2

After arriving at SoFi Stadium on Thursday for the team’s first intra-squad scrimmage of training camp, the players and coaches have decided they will not go through with their scheduled practice.

The Bolts join over a half dozen other teams in the NFL who have canceled all football-related activities for the day, including the Cardinals, Jets, and Packers.

“We can’t give up hope. That was the sense a little bit,” Lynn said in front of NFL Network’s cameras with his team backing him.

The decision comes following Wednesday’s rash of boycotts by the NBA’s playoff teams in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man from Kenosha, Wisconsin.

A number of teams from MLB also made their own statements over the last 24 hours, refusing to play a number of games Wednesday, while a number of other clubs are still deciding on whether or not play Thursday night.

No other updates have been made available at this time and it remains to be seen if the Chargers will reschedule the scrimmage for a later date.
