San Diego Chargers’ inside linebacker Donald Butler has missed two games this season due to a groin injury and looks to be on track to miss his third against Washington.

Butler said, like any player would after a bye week, that he’s feeling better but is being cautious. “I’m taking it one day at a time,” Butler said. “I’m not getting too far ahead of myself. I feel better every day since I started resting it and gotten stronger every day. One day at a time.” Safety Eric Weddle also missed practice though head coach Mike McCoy claims he “will be fine.” Weddle has a callus removed last week and Monday was just seen as a rest/rehab day for the All-Pro defensive back. Some good news is that for the first time since September 18th, the five starting offensive linemen practiced together. Guard Chad Rinehart practiced for the first time since injuring his tow in week 3 against the Tennessee Titans. King Du...

AROUND THE WEB
The San Diego Chargers enter their bye week at 4-3 and are in contention in AFC. They are coming off back-to-back wins and are playing very well in all three aspects, offense, defense, and special teams. Their next opponent is the Washington Redskins (2-5) who were gaining some momentum of their own the past couple weeks after a slow start. The Chargers will have the tough task of...
There were plenty of reasons Keenan Allen was thrilled when he was drafted in the third round by the San Diego Chargers.
Among others, he relished the opportunity to play with Philip Rivers, remain in California and enter an offense he thought had the chance to be something special.
However, one reason some may not know is that he became a big fan of the Chargers due to his wide...
Philip Rivers the former NC State Standout has been on fire this year. Number 17 is coming off a historic game against Jacksonville jaguars, for the record he completed his first 14 passes in the game which is a team record and became just the 37th QB in history to cross 30,000 yard threshold for […]
Chargers tight end Antonio Gates said he can understand Brandon Meriweather's frustration after being suspended for multiple helmet-first hits against defenseless receivers.
Meriweather has been vocal this week, saying, ''I guess I've just got to take people's knees out.''
''Now whether he does it or not, you understand at one point when they...
WR Rankings – Week Nine
Keenan Allen has solidified himself as the Chargers number one receiver and a top-25 talent in the league at his position. Allen comes in as a top ten option this week against Washington’s forgiving pass defense.
Darrius Heyward-Bey finds himself ranked as a WR2 for week nine with a game against the Texans on the slate. We expect the Texans to focus on...
Running backs coach: Hey Danny, nice practice. Before I forget, I meant to congratulate you on the birth of your son. You must be so thrilled.Danny Woodhead: [voice cracking] Thanks, sir. It’s been a crazy week. We didn’t want a hospital birth, so the baby was delivered at skate park instead. My parents said I was an idiot afterward but it went down so smooth. Baby just slid...

Antonio Gates has been terrific this season. Hopefully he continues his run come Sunday when the Chargers face off against the defenseless Redskins. It seems to me this team defends their name more than it does it’s...
NFL Hall of Famer Lance Alworth is getting back his Super Bowl ring, 25 years after it was stolen.
The San Diego County Sheriff's Department said Tuesday the 1971 ring was scheduled to be sold Nov. 20 at an auction house in Laguna Niguel with an opening bid of $44,000. The ring was reported stolen in 1988 from a San Diego bar that displayed sports memorabilia.
Philip Rivers' revival has him again performing like one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.
Robert Griffin III doesn't look to be anywhere close to approaching that lofty level.
Rivers and the San Diego Chargers emerge from a bye in search of their first three-game winning streak in almost two years Sunday when they visit Griffin and the struggling Washington Redskins...
