  • Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Out with undisclosed injury

    Guyton (undisclosed) did not practice Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    Guyton left Tuesday's practice after one-on-one drills, walking immediately to the trainers tent, so it's not a surprise the speedy wideout was unavailable Wednesday. Coach Brandon Staley waved off any sort of concern regarding the injury suggesting the team was just being cautious with Guyton, but declined to list when the wide receiver might return to practice.

  • Chargers' Tyron Johnson: Held out with foot/ankle issue

    Johnson (foot/ankle) didn't practice Tuesday, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

    Johnson reportedly looked good early in training camp but then suffered a minor foot/ankle injury over the weekend. He's competing for the No. 3 receiver role with Jalen Guyton and rookie Josh Palmer.

  • Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Falling behind for No. 3 job

    Guyton has been outplayed by Josh Palmer and Tyron Johnson (foot) through the first week of training camp, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    The three are competing to be the Chargers' No. 3 receiver, a role Guyton handled for most of last season, though he drew only 55 targets on 920 offensive snaps. While the team could get its third wideout more involved now that TE Hunter Henry is gone, the role still figures to entail a lot of blocking and clear-out routes. The blocking responsibilities might work in Guyton's favor, but Johnson is probably the better deep threat and Palmer is the only one the Chargers really have an investment in as a rookie third-round pick.

  • Chargers' Tyron Johnson: Dealing with foot issue

    Johnson is tending to a foot/ankle injury in the early stages of training camp, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Johnson sustained the issue while coming down after a catch Saturday, per Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register. While the first two spots on the Chargers' wide receiver depth chart are set in stone with Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, Johnson is vying with Jalen Guyton and potentially rookie third-rounder Josh Palmer for the No. 3 role. Johnson fared well as an undrafted first-year player last season, averaging 19.9 YPC and 15.3 YPT on his 26 targets.

  • Chargers' K.J. Costello: Signs with Chargers

    Costello signed with the Chargers on Sunday.

    Costello joined the Chargers for rookie minicamp earlier in the offseason, and he'll now compete with Chase Daniel and Easton Stick for a backup role during training camp. The 24-year-old appeared in six games during his senior season at Mississippi State in 2020 and threw for 1,283 yards, six touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

  • Chargers' Justin Jackson: Returns from COVID-19 list

    Jackson returned to practice Thursday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    Jackson has been cleared to practice after a two-day stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He's competing with Joshua Kelley, Larry Rountree and Darius Bradwell for depth roles behind Austin Ekeler, though the No. 2 running back -- potentially Jackson -- could see quite a few carries. Injuries have limited Jackson, a 2018 seventh-round pick, to 29 games in three seasons with the Chargers.

  • Chargers' Jared Cook: Improving connection with QB

    Cook is already gaining a "solid rapport" with quarterback Justin Herbert throughout the early portions of training camp, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran tight end was one of the Chargers' few notable offseason additions, but the early returns at least appear to be promising, as he and Herbert hooked up on a couple of passes throughout practice. Cook is expected to get plenty of time off throughout training camp heading into the regular season, so much so that the 34-year-old likely will play sparingly in the team's three preseason games, if he makes an appearance at all.

  • Chargers' Justin Jackson: Moved to Reserve/COVID-19 list

    Jackson was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

    Assuming Jackson doesn't take too long to recover, the issue shouldn't really hinder his ability to contribute on offense in 2021. However, he was already set to compete with Joshua Kelley for backup duties behind Austin Ekeler and got some added competition in the form of Larry Rountree. Jackson will start a bit behind his teammates in getting up to speed in a new offense, which certainly doesn't help his cause.

  • Chargers' John Hurst: Hits PUP list

    The Chargers placed Hurst (undisclosed) on the PUP list Tuesday, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The reason behind Hurst's placement on the list is unclear, but it will prevent the second-year wideout from getting a chance to make an early impression in training camp. When he's cleared to participate, Hurst will likely need to make a big splash in a short timeframe in order to claim a 53-man roster spot.
