JOHNNIE TROUTMAN RUMORS

Troutman gets chance to hit Cardinals

The Chargers pay Johnnie Troutman to do something he enjoys. “I like hitting people,” the guard said. Troutman, preceded by Jeromey Clary last year and Louis Vasquez in 2012, is expected to be the team’s third different right guard in as many season openers when the Chargers and Cardinals meet Monday night. It’s been a progression for Troutman, a fifth-round draft pick...

The positive takeaways from the Chargers’ frustrating loss against Seattle

The Chargers got trounced 41-14 at the hands of the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks on Friday, and it is easy to pile on and tear down San Diego’s performance.

Chargers fill interior line void with Chris Watt from Notre Dame

Okay, so it’s not a sexy pick, but Chris Watt is exactly what the Chargers needed. An experienced and talented offensive guard to backup Johnnie Troutman, Rich Ohrnberger and Jeromey Clary.

After push, Johnnie Troutman will sit

Chargers coach Mike McCoy didn't sugarcoat this. Johnnie Troutman was flagged for a penalty late in the fourth quarter Sunday. McCoy didn't like it. On Monday, he called the penalty "critical." He called the mistake "unacceptable." Now, Troutman won't be in the starting lineup this Sunday. Call it a coincidence. The Chargers left guard has done...
