Cassel will start Thursday night’s game at San Diego because Brady Quinn has not been cleared to practice due to a concussion, regaining the starting job — at least for one week — that he lost after a dismal five-game stretch to start the season.
The Chargers lost their third straight game, 7-6 at Cleveland on Sunday. But Scrifres’ punting added two percent to the Chargers’ chances of winning the game. Scrifres averaged 46.5 yards on six punts and had just two punts returned against him for a total of 7 yards.
The Chargers kicker passed a team physical Tuesday morning and was released. He receives all of his $1.2 million termination pay and becomes an unrestricted free agent, able to sign with any team.
