Woodhead broke his ankle in Week 3, leaving San Diego without it's primary third-down back and a key target out of the backfield. But he seems to be back to 100 percent during the Bolts' offseason training work, and that should give the team's offense an added dimension.
"Hopefully (the offense is) a little bit better than it was at this point last year, but we'll see," he said. "It's a day-to-day process. We want to be great, and we think we've got a lot of good guys and a lot of good pieces. So we're excited about it."
Woodhead had more than 1,000 total yards in 2013, but had just 72 total yards when he went down last season.
"I feel really, really good," Woodhead said. "I really do. As far as the injury goes, that is something I'm not even thinking about. I'm thinking about trying to get better. I'm focusing on working on what I can do to be better than I was last year. Obviously I wasn't able to play a lot of games, so I should say I want to be better than I was that first season here."
Woodhead totaled over 1,000 all-purpose yards when healthy in 2013 with San Diego and scored eight touchdowns.
"It's been a long process," Woodhead said. "But definitely it makes you hungrier when the game is taken away. It makes you realize how blessed you are to play it. Not that I didn't understand that before, but when it is taken away for such a long amount of time, it makes you even hungrier. You miss being out there with your brothers. I'm excited for this season. I'm always excited, but my mentality might even be younger and hungrier than ever before."
The Chargers added three players to the practice squad Tuesday as well: running back
"We're going to miss him. But we've got to move on," McCoy said.
Woodhead injured the ankle when he was tackled on his first run of the game, and the injury will likely require surgery, according to the report. He has been diagnosed with a severe high ankle sprain and fractured fibula, injuries that will likely end his campaign.
At this point, the team has not given an update on his status.
