Report: Chargers’ Travis Benjamin Out 2-3 Weeks with Foot Injury – Timothy Rapp
The 28-year-old was signed by the Chargers before the 2016 season. He posted solid if unspectacular numbers that year, catching 47 passes for 677 yards and four touchdowns. He didn’t take a major step forward in 2017, posting 34 receptions for 567 yards and four scores.
How do the Los Angeles Chargers get Austin Ekeler More Involved? – Ernie Padaon
I love that the Chargers have been finding ways to get them both on the field at the same time. Ekeler has been lining up in the slot and forcing other teams to match a linebacker up with him. Linebackers can’t really keep up.
Corey Liuget’s return from suspension adds push to Chargers’ pass rush – Eric Williams
“Corey’s one of the better run-stoppers in this league,” Lynn said. “When he was in there this preseason, the front seven looked a lot better. And so it’s going to be nice to have him back.”
Three wild alternate Drew Brees timelines, and how NFL changed – Bill Barnwell
While the Chargers expected Rivers to take over at some point during the 2004 campaign, Brees turned his career around. With the help of second-year tight end Antonio Gates, Brees‘ interception rate fell, his completion percentage and yards per attempt rose dramatically, and he finished with a passer rating of 104.8, making the Pro Bowl in the process. Brees has posted an above-average passer rating in each of the ensuing 14 seasons.
AFC Notes: Raiders, Fins, Bengals, Chargers – Dallas Robinson
Chargers linebacker Kyzir White underwent a minor knee operation on Monday and will miss Week 5, head coach Anthony Lynn told reporters, including Williams (Twitter link). White isn’t expected to miss much time, however, and should be back “sooner rather than later,” per Lynn. A fourth-round rookie out of West Virginia, White has started three games for Los Angeles this season, racking up 12 tackles in the process. Jatavis Brown should see more snaps in White’s absence.
