English, Royal, Gatiher and Bigby All Sidelined for Practice

Injuries. Injuries. Injuries!!!!!

It is what has slowed the Chargers down in past seasons. It is something that we don’t want to see from the players early in camp. There are some players that have a history of hanging out on the sideline and it becomes a concern when they are already taking time out this early in camp. Larry English, Eddie Royal, Atari Bigby and Jared Gaither are all players that are expected to produce this season and they all had to watch practice today.

Gaither is having back spasms. In the first practice of the season he had to be taken off in a cart with a full body cramp. Royal and Bigby both have some undisclosed strain. English has a hamstring strain. None of the injuries are thought to be serious, but these guys have struggled to stay on the field before.

Brandon Taylor and Mario Henderson are getting first team reps at the start of camp. It will be a valuable experience for both of them.

The next Chargers open practice is today at 10:45am – 1pm. Share your thoughts on yesterday’s practice if you made it out yesterday.

        The scouting report said,”…Has a history of injuries…”. IT was ignored, and here we are.

  • Gilbert

    What is Eddie Royals injury?

  • 619chargers4life

    bout to head on down to the park in like 30 mins . whos coming with me ?

  • Pete Spinning

    Am I mistaken, or did English sit out in OTA’s too? I am really pulling for the comeback, but it is definitely starting out on the wrong foot. Some guys are just not up to NFL play, no matter what they looked like in college. I hope he proves me wrong. Let’s keep on the field, and GO BOLTZ!!!

  • John A Bauer

    Would it be OK if we stopped using the word hate or haters in sports come on think about it ? Then people why there are shotings about things a little more important.

  • Ernie Padaon
