  • Chargers' Justin Jones: Sits out practice

    Jones (calf) didn't participate at Wednesday's practice, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Jones picked up the calf injury during the season opener and was inactive Week 2, and he's not practicing again to start this week. The 25-year-old likely will need to practice in some capacity the next two days to have a chance of suiting up Sunday at Kansas City.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: No practice Wednesday

    Bosa didn't practice Wednesday due to a foot/ankle injury, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Bosa played 82 percent of the defensive snaps in each of the first two games, and the injury isn't expected to affect his availability for Week 3. The 26-year-old has seven total tackles, one sack and a forced fumble.

  • Chargers' Tristan Vizcaino: Miss proves crucial in loss

    Vizcaino (illness) made three of his four field-goal attempts and did not attempt an extra point in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cowboys.

    Vizcaino never attempted a kick longer than 46 yards, but the missed 44-yard try to essentially end the first half predictably came back to haunt the Chargers. The offense has been dynamic with quarterback Justin Herbert throwing for 300-plus yards in back-to-back games, but struggles near the red zone have allowed Vizcaino to attempt six kicks through two games. It's hard to imagine that changing much in a likely high-octane matchup against the Chiefs in Week 3.

  • Chargers' Asante Samuel: First career pick

    Samuel recorded four tackles (one solo) and an interception in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cowboys.

    Samuel recorded his first career interception on a badly overthrown pass by Dak Prescott, returning it 26 yards to set up the Chargers in great scoring position. The rookie second-round pick has been a pivotal starter through two weeks while averaging close to 90 percent of the defensive snaps, more than exceeding expectations to date.

  • Chargers' Larry Rountree: Poor outing in loss

    Rountree lost a combined two yards on his only target and carry in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cowboys.

    One week after recording eight carries for 27 yards, the rookie sixth-round pick took a back seat to Justin Jackson from a yardage perspective (29 total yards) and snaps (16 to 10 in favor of Jackson). The snap totals at least reflect a close competition for the backup role behind Austin Ekeler, but the extra usage of both Rountree and Jackson could essentially boil down to whether or not the Chargers are playing from behind.

  • Chargers' Justin Jackson: Marginally more snaps in Week 2

    Jackson carried the ball four times for 21 yards and also caught his lone target for eight yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cowboys.

    Jackson still didn't see his first snaps until the second half, but at least the undrafted free agent out-snapped Larry Rountree, albeit by a relatively slim 16-10 margin. It appears as if Jackson is more trusted in come-from-behind situations, at least as a substitute for All-World pass-catcher Austin Ekeler.
