Lamp (knee) is beginning training camp on the PUP list, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Lamp is working his way back from a torn ACL, so his placement on the PUP list comes as no surprise. The team has stated in the past that Lamp is progressing well in his recovery, and the hope is that he'll be ready for Week 1. A second-round pick from 2017, Lamp will be expected to compete for a starting role at right guard when he returns to action.
General manager Tom Telesco said Lamp (knee) is progressing in his recovery but there isn't a timeline for the offensive lineman to return to action, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.
Lamp is bouncing back from a torn ACL in his right knee and has been held out of practice at times during the team's offseason workout program. While the 2017 second-rounder could possibly open training camp under some restrictions, there at least doesn't seem to be any concern over Lamp's availability for the start of training camp in late July.
Lamp underwent a minor procedure on his right knee this offseason, Steve Wyche of NFL Network reports.
Lamp missed his entire rookie season while recovering from a torn ACL in the right knee, so it's somewhat concerning that he required a follow-up procedure. Even so, head coach Anthony Lynn suggested that Lamp could be back to full health in the near future, so it looks like the 24-year-old will remain in the mix for a starting role at guard once training camp arrives.
Lamp (knee) is nearing a full recovery following the torn ACL he suffered last season.
The 2017 second-round pick has already participated in early offseason workouts, suggesting he's at least closing in on 100 percent health. According to coach Anthony Lynn, Lamp is "right on schedule" as far as a complete recovery is concerned. Barring any unforeseen setbacks, Lamp looks poised to get 2018 started on the right footing.
Lamp (knee) said Wednesday that he's resumed running and remains in line to take part in offseason workouts with the team, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports. "I'm feeling really good so far," Lamp said. "I'm five months post [surgery], and coming along really good. The training staff and I have been working Monday through Friday, and we've been starting to run and do things like that."
A second-round pick out of Western Kentucky last April, Lamp was set to compete for a starting gig at guard for the Chargers before an ACL tear suffered on the third day of padded practices in training camp ended the rookie's season before it even started. Fortunately for Lamp, the timing of his injury and the surgery that followed should put him on track to be a full participant in training camp during the upcoming summer. The 6-foot-4, 310-pound Lamp could again be in the conversation for a starting role at guard.
