Kevin O’Connell’s time with the team was short but it was needed for the offensive weapons to get reps in practice. Charlie Whitehurst is ready to take the ball again, so O’Connell’s services were no longer needed. Kevin was released today after his work with the team.
Charlie Whitehurst will be the backup quarterback on the team unless he is injured. If he goes down with a serious injury, then look for the Chargers to sign another veteran onto the team.
