 Latest Chargers Player Notes
Jul 19 2017 - Mike Williams
  WR Mike Williams reportedly may need back surgery that would end his rookie season.

Williams, 22, was diagnosed with a herniated disk in the lower back after his first practice during rookie minicamp last month and did not practice again. It is unclear if the injury took place before minicamp.

  TE Antonio Gates is entering his 14th season -- all 14 of them have been spent working out at Chargers Park. But all that ends on Thursday. The Chargers will report to training camp next month in neighboring Orange County. "It's a bittersweet moment because these memories are still here and they will always be here for myself and the guys that have been around,'' Gates said. "I just came to work every single day and I've always been appreciative of the opportunity the Chargers gave me as a free agent. I never took anything for granted. When I got here the game was super fast, the game was like a blur. Now everything has slowed down."


Jun 13 2017 - Melvin Ingram
  DE Melvin Ingram was at Monday's minicamp practice, the first of three before the Chargers wrap up that portion of their offseason workouts. Ingram arrived after agreeing to a four-year deal worth about $60 million, with around $40 million of it guaranteed. The Charger had initially placed the franchise tag on Ingram before the two sides reached an agreement. "It's a big relief,'' said Ingram, who's had 18.5 sacks the past two years. "Now that it's over it's all fun and games and you get to do what you like to do."

Mar 2 2017 - Melvin Ingram
  LB Melvin Ingram was retained via the franchise tag. Coach Anthony Lynn said Ingram does more than pester quarterbacks. "He's a big piece of the puzzle," Lynn said. "He's an outstanding pass rusher, but he plays the run well. His stats -- I think he had (eight) sacks or something like that -- but when you look at his impact on the game, his quarterback hits, hit pressures, he just did an outstanding job. I love the way he plays the game." The Chargers were eager to keep the tandem of Joey Bosa, the NFL defensive rookie of the year, and Ingram together.


Feb 17 2017 - King Dunlap

After Gates, who earlier tied Tony Gonzalez with his 111th career scoring catch, was unable to collect a Philip Rivers pass, Josh Lambo kicked a 29-yard field goal. Gates was being tracked by numerous Chiefs defenders. "It was drawn up perfectly," Gates said. "I knew the second touchdown was going to have be a spectacular catch. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make a catch." Gates carved his name in the NFL record book with his 2-yard, second-quarter touchdown that delivered a 10-3 Chargers lead.
