 Latest Chargers Player Notes
Sep 18 2017 - Joe Barksdale
  RT Joe Barksdale, who briefly left the game on Sunday with a foot injury, should be good to go against the Chiefs.


Sep 18 2017 - Desmond King
  DB Desmond King got a decent grade from head coach Antony Lynn on Sunday, although Lynn said King has to get off the blockers quicker in the running game.


Sep 18 2017 - Jason Verrett
  CB Jason Verrett, who is bouncing back from knee surgery, wasn't able to go on Sunday. Head coach Anthony Lynn isn't sounding overly optimistic on when Verrett, a Pro Bowler, might return. Verrett's career has been marked by stints of him being injured.


Sep 18 2017 - Joe Barksdale
  RT Joe Barksdale left the game with a leg injury.


Sep 18 2017 - Philip Rivers
  QB Philip Rivers was 31 of 39 for 282 yards with a touchdown. But it wasn't enough as the Chargers sunk to 9-25 in their past two-plus seasons. Rivers' lone touchdown was a record-setter, however, as TE Antonio Gates caught it for his 112th career touchdown. That score snapped his tie with Tony Gonzalez for the NFL record for tight ends. "It was awesome," Rivers said. "Too bad it didn't happen in a win. but it was awesome. It's a lot of touchdowns, a lot of years, a lot of tight ends that have played in this league. Certainly a special accomplishment for him." Rivers has had a hand in 85 of those touchdowns, the most ever by a quarterback-tight end tandem.


Sep 18 2017 - YoungHoe Koo
  Younghoe Koo's 44-yard field-goal attempt with nine seconds remaining was off the mark. It was the second straight game that the rookie Koo had a chance to win or tie in the closing seconds. One was blocked and this one was wide right. He also misfired from 43 yards earlier in the game. "He didn't kick well," Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said. "We'll see how he responds." A downcast Koo said his erratic effort failed for a simple reason. "I just pushed it right," he said. "It's definitely frustrating."


Sep 18 2017 - Antonio Gates
  TE Antonio Gates caught his 112th career touchdown in Sunday's loss to Miami. That score snapped his tie with Tony Gonzalez for the NFL record for tight ends. "It was awesome," Philip Rivers said. "Too bad it didn't happen in a win. but it was awesome. It's a lot of touchdowns, a lot of years, a lot of tight ends that have played in this league. Certainly a special accomplishment for him." Gates laid on his back and thrust both hands into the air after the reception, which came when he reached above Nate Allen for the score. Gates was immediately mobbed by his teammates and the resulting dog pile will long be remembered. "It was amazing," Chargers running back Melvin Gordon said. "It was phenomenal that I got to be a part of it." An undrafted rookie from Kent State, Gates has been a big contributor, just not in these parts. He became a star in San Diego, where he became the franchise's career leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown catches. "It's finally come to an end," Gates said of his long pursuit at NFL immortality. "Six weeks of hearing about when I'm going to break the record."


Sep 15 2017 - Jason Verrett
  CB Jason Verrett was the only change to the Chargers' injury report on Thursday. Verrett (knee) didn't practice as the team continues preparing for Sunday's game against the visiting Miami Dolphins. He also did not practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game.


Sep 14 2017 - Jason Verrett
  CB Jason Verrett was the only change to the Chargers' injury report on Thursday. Verrett (knee) didn't practice as the team continues preparing for Sunday's game against the visiting Miami Dolphins.


Sep 14 2017 - Rayshawn Jenkins
  S Rayshawn Jenkins remains in the concussion protocol.


Sep 14 2017 - Tenny Palepoi
  DE Tenny Palepoi completed his four-game suspension for a PED violation last season and has been reinserted onto the roster.


Sep 14 2017 - Sean McGrath
  TE Sean McGrath (knee) was a full participant.


Sep 14 2017 - Dontrelle Inman
  WR Dontrelle Inman (groin) was a full participant.


Sep 14 2017 - Jerry Attaochu
  LB/DE Jerry Attaochu (hamstring) was a full participant.


Sep 14 2017 - Kenny Wiggins
  RG Kenny Wiggins, who played much of Monday's game with a sprained ankle, was a full participant on Wednesday.


Sep 12 2017 - Hunter Henry
  TE Hunter Henry is expected to play a big part in the offense. But he wasn't targeted in the opener.


Sep 12 2017 - Casey Hayward
  CB Casey Hayward led the NFL with seven interceptions last year. This year, he's starting in the opposite direction. He had one potential pick-six slip through his hands and he got beat on several big plays as well.


Sep 12 2017 - Kenny Wiggins
  RG Kenny Wiggins suffered a sprained ankle during the game. But head coach Anthony Lynn was upbeat about Wiggins' availability on Sunday.


Sep 12 2017 - Mike Williams
  WR Mike Williams, the Chargers' top draft pick, did not play Monday. He was deactivated after missing practice in the week leading up to the opener due to a lower back injury that also kept him out of most of training camp.


Sep 12 2017 - Korey Toomer
  LB Korey Toomer ripped the ball out of the hands of Denver running back Jamal Charles, giving Los Angeles possession at the Denver 38 with the Chargers trailing by 10 points. The Chargers scored on the next play to get within three, but lost 24-21.


Sep 12 2017 - Philip Rivers
  QB Philip Rivers completed 22 of 33 for 192 yards and three touchdowns with one interception. He led a furious comeback from a 17-point deficit entering the fourth quarter. However, the Chargers lost 24-21 when Younghoe Koo 44-yard field-goal attempt was blocked. "We just waited too long to get started, but then you could feel it," Rivers said. "We've been on both sides of those kind of games where teams start roaring back like that. We were going pretty good. We just came up short."


Sep 12 2017 - YoungHoe Koo
  K Younghoe Koo had a 44-yard field goal attempt in the closing moments of Denver's 24-21 victory over the Chargers. Koo's kick would have tied the game.


Sep 7 2017 - Keenan Allen
  WR Keenan Allen has passed the one-year mark since his devastating knee injury last season. Allen has looked good all through camp, showing a burst and an ability to make sharp cuts.


Sep 7 2017 - Nick Dzubnar
  LB Nick Dzubnar, who went from running with the first team after Denzel Perryman went down to being cut, has been brought back on the practice squad.


Sep 7 2017 - Sean McGrath
  TE Sean McGrath was limited in Tuesday's practice. The team didn't work on Wednesday.


Sep 7 2017 - Austin Ekeler
  RB Austin Ekeler, an undrafted rookie who made the Chargers' roster, will be asked to contribute on special teams. He is listed as the team's top kick returner.


Sep 7 2017 - Desmond King
  CB Desmond King, who was among the pleasant surprises of camp after being a fifth-round pick, is adding to his nickel-back responsibilities. King will back up Travis Benjamin on punt returns.


Sep 7 2017 - Drew Kaser
  P Drew Kaser not only won his positional battle but he is back holding for kicks as well. Kaser fumbled a snap against the Raiders last year on a field-goal attempt that helped fueled Oakland's rally. He was replaced by Kellen Clemens but now Kaser is back holding.


Sep 7 2017 - Kenny Wiggins
  RG Kenny Wiggins held off rookie Dan Feeney in their battle for a starting role. While Wiggins won out, Feeney is in the team's plans and could be inserted if Wiggins, who struggled at times last year, falters.


Sep 7 2017 - Kenny Wiggins
  QB Kellen Clemens returned to the team after being waived and he slid right back into his backup spot on the depth chart. Cardale Jones, who the team kept briefly over Clemens, is No. 3 behind Clemens and Philip Rivers.


Sep 6 2017 - Keenan Allen
  WR Keenan Allen has passed the one-year mark since his devastating knee injury last season. Allen has looked good all through camp, showing a burst and an ability to make sharp cuts.


Sep 6 2017 - Nick Dzubnar
  LB Nick Dzubnar, who went from running with the first team after Denzel Perryman went down, to being cut, has been brought back on the practice squad.


Sep 6 2017 - Sean McGrath
  TE Sean McGrath was limited in Tuesday's practice. The team didn't work on Wednesday.


Sep 6 2017 - Austin Ekeler
  RB Austin Ekeler, an undrafted rookie that made the team, will be asked to contribute on special teams. He's listed as the team's top kickoff returner.


Sep 6 2017 - Desmond King
  CB Desmond King, who was among the pleasant surprises of camp after being a fifth-round pick, is adding to his nickel-back responsibilities. King will back up Travis Benjamin on punt returns.


Sep 6 2017 - Drew Kaser
  P Drew Kaser not only won his positional battle, but he is back holding for kicks as well. Kaser fumbled a snap against the Raiders last year on a field-goal attempt that helped fuel Oakland's rally. He was replaced by Kellen Clemens, but now Kaser is back holding.


Sep 6 2017 - Kenny Wiggins
  RG Kenny Wiggins held off rookie Dan Feeney in their battle for a starting role. While Wiggins won out, Feeney is in the team's plans and could be inserted if Wiggins, who struggled at times last year, falters.


Sep 6 2017 - Kellen Clemens
  QB Kellen Clemens returned to the team after being released and he slid right back into his backup spot on the depth chart. Cardale Jones, who the team kept briefly over Clemens, is No. 3 behind Clemens and Philip Rivers.


Sep 1 2017 - Sean McGrath
  TE Sean McGrath's bid to return to the team is seemingly derailed by a knee injury.


Sep 1 2017 - Drew Kaser
  K Josh Lambo will return to his role.


Sep 1 2017 - Josh Lambo
  K Josh Lambo will return to his role.


Sep 1 2017 - Donavon Clark
  G Donavon Clark suffered a knee injury against the 49ers.


Sep 1 2017 - Joshua Perry
  ILB Joshua Perry suffered a head injury in the 49ers game and his status will be determined.


Sep 1 2017 - Korey Toomer
  ILB Korey Toomer was among the first-string players to see playing time in the preseason finale. Toomer continues to look good, and that's comforting to a unit that lost Denzel Perryman (ankle) for two months.


Sep 1 2017 - Kyle Coleman
  ILB Kyle Coleman was added to the roster on Aug. 15, but he's proven to be a quick study. Coleman returned an interception 30 yards for a touchdown against the 49ers.


Sep 1 2017 - Austin Ekeler
  RB Austin Ekeler aided his bid to make the roster with a solid showing in the final preseason game. Ekeler, from Western (Colorado) State, had a team-high 50 yards on eight carries and added 58 yards on three receptions.


Sep 1 2017 - Cardale Jones
  QB Cardale Jones showed plenty of good and bad during his stint against the 49ers. What stood out was the two turnovers by Jones, which didn't help his bid to unseat Kellen Clemens in the backup role. The Chargers love Jones' potential, but they might be forced to have three quarterbacks if they want to keep him.


Sep 1 2017 - Mike Williams
  WR Michael Williams, the team's top pick and No. 7 overall, is likely to start the season on the PUP list. Williams, who has a back injury, didn't play in any preseason games and hasn't practiced since the rookie minicamp.


Aug 29 2017 - Nigel Harris
  ILB Nigel Harris, once a dark horse to make the cut, could slip by. Not only has he played well but starter Denzel Perryman (ankle) is out the first two months.


Aug 29 2017 - Isaac Rochell
  DE Isaac Rochell, a seventh-round pick, might have earned a spot with his special-teams play. He needs a solid game on Thursday.
