The team will start Darren McFadden at running back Monday night against the Chargers. Cable was asked why last year's fourth overall pick got the job. "I just think for everything that he is in terms of being multiple, running the football, catching the football," Cable said. "He's shown a high level of consistency all through camp and certainly brings some explosiveness like we're trying to build with this offense." The decision was made easier because last year's starter Justin Fargas isn't fully healthy and is uncertain to play the opener. But the team needed to make the change, and Fargas could find himself behind McFadden and Michael Bush when he is ready.

Henderson says the Chargers are looking at local sites only because they will have to prove to the NFL that they gave San Diego every chance. Also, if the Chargers wait until after the 2010 season to announce they are leaving, they will only be obligated to pay $25.8 million of the remaining debt from the 1998 remodel of the stadium. If they make the announcement this season, it will be more than double that.
