Chargers WR Eddie Royal returned to practice on Wednesday. Royal has missed most of training camp with a leg injury and missed the last few days because of family issues. Royal believes it will not take long for him and Rivers to get back in sync. I felt like the foundations that was built in OTAs [was solid], Royal said of working with Rivers. It is just building on that. Every rep that I get with Philip is going to be important. I just need to focus in on the little things that I missed out on. Source: CBS Sports

With just a couple short weeks until the opening kickoff of the 2012 NFL season, it’s finally time to make my official predictions, knowing full well they will be shot to pieces faster than Carson Palmer can throw 10 INT’s. Still, gotta fill the time somehow, right?
Last year, I took a huge risk and predicted a Patriots-Packers Super Bowl. (Having something whispered in my...
For years, the San Diego Chargers stood as the most fearsome team in the AFC West. The combination of Philip Rivers and LaDainian Tomlinson dominated the division. Tomlinson and the team ultimately parted ways in 2010, and since then the division has been somewhat shaky and completely up for grabs. That was never more evident [...]

The Chargers practiced Wednesday without three of their offensive line starters, raising questions about how much quarterback Philip Rivers will play in San Diego's next preseason game at Minnesota.
Coach Norv Turner said Rivers doesn't necessarily need more preseason action to be ready for the season opener Sept. 10 at Oakland.
''Philip would be ready to play if...
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune doesn’t believe Chargers running back Ryan Mathews will get on the field until week three of the regular season.
“@loffyloff: You think Chargers sit Mathews 1st couple weeks? Or hurry him back week 1?” >Won’t hurry him. I think it will be wk 3 vs. ATL.

A popular fantasy sleeper for the 2012 NFL season, Vincent Brown, may have had his season end before it even started as Brown broke his ankle in last week’s preseason game. The Chargers are optimistic that he can play this season and will not put him on IR, but an 8 week prognosis (which would have him return around week 5 or 6) seems awfully optimistic for such a major injury...
Too often the blame for failed seasons is placed squarely on a player or coach's shoulder.Fans seem to forget that most coaches work with their general manager on player personnel, and the GM has a very powerful say in who to sign/release or draft/trade.While it's easy to be critical of front office management during high exposure times like the Draft or the Colts' collapse...
Chargers center Nick Hardwick later suffered a concussion in practice, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Hardwick is considered day-to-day, a team spokesman said, putting his availability for Friday's preseason game in question.

Cowboys wide receiver Dwayne Harris accuses Chargers cornerback Quentin Jammer of taking a cheap shot at him according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. Harris made a catch and a split second later he was sent flying by a hit from Jammer. He caught me right on the chin, Harris said. My face still hurts a little bit. Ill get a little ice on it, and Ill be OK....
The Chargers are a talented bunch of players that have underperformed at times. We review their top options, some of whom aren’t expected to play Friday.
Preseason NFL football is upon us. And as Marv Albert will say, “we’ve reached extensive garbage time.” Seriously, pre-season football is nearly as uninteresting as pre-season baseball. However, you’ve always got to find a little good in everything right? Of course!
And what’s better than what I would consider to be the best cheerleading squad in the entire...
