Good morning, Chargers fans!
UPDATE: Despite what the schedule says on the team’s official site, it looks like the Chargers going with just helmets for Friday’s practice. While a bummer, Brandon Staley is likely hoping to stay as healthy as possible before Sunday’s scrimmage.
The Chargers were off on Thursday to prepare for their second and third full-padded practices which will take place today and tomorrow. The weekend will culminate with their intra-squad scrimmage on Sunday. Another day of pads popping is exactly how I’d like to head into the weekend. As always, feel free to use this post to talk about anything and everything.
And now for today’s links.
