With Ryan Mathews sidelined,
Brown got the start and ripped runs for 4 and 5 yards before Woodhead got his first touch of the night on the opening drive. Brown finished with four carries for 16 yards and two catches for 13 yards and three targets. Woodhead rushed for a 24 yards on six carries. He also caught one pass from Kellen Clemens for a gain of 5 yards. Both players were lifted after one half of work.
Woodhead and the Chargers will take on the Seahawks in Seattle on Aug. 15.
The paper still calls Mathews "the workhorse." Woodhead is "the versatile guy who can run and catch," and Brown is "sort of a hybrid of the two." The team also drafted running back Marion Grice.
"There is no such thing as a featured back any more," running backs coach Ollie Wilson said.
"Danny is an integral part of our offense," said general manager Tom Telesco. "His work ethic and on-field production were key elements last year. We look forward to having him be a part of the Chargers organization into the future."
Woodhead had 106 carries for 429 yards and two rushing scores to go along with 76 catches for 605 yards and six receiving touchdowns in 2013, mostly all career-high numbers.
McCoy said his background after working for John Fox in Carolina is using multiple running backs.
"You get in there, you get on a little bit of a roll and you’re going to stay in there," McCoy said. "Donald is a perfect fit for our system, and that’s why we went after him and got him. He understands what we want to do offensively, not only in the passing game but in the running game and pass protection. ... We'll let Donald come in there and show us what he can do, and we'll try to take advantage of what he does best and go with the flow of the game."
