Donald Butler Full Participant on Thursday Practice


Donald Butler looks like he is on pace to be starting in the middle of the Chargers defense on Sunday against the Denver Broncos. Butler and Te’o will be in the middle of the defense for the 3rd time this season. Te’o and Butler also were on the field against the Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders games. It will be good to have both starting backers in the middle of the defense. Andrew Gachkar and Reggie Walker did a decent job in the middle during their opportunities.

Hopefully he is at full speed out there. I am sure that Peyton Manning will test him and Manti Te’o out a lot during the game. We will see how the Chargers are going to use Te’o during the game also. The Broncos force teams to keep certain personnel on the field with their hurry up offense and the Chargers try to take Te’o off of the field during passing situations.

I wonder what defense the Chargers will keep on the field the majority of the time this weekend.

    7 int’s as a Senior last year, Im not sure I mind if Te’o plays in passing situations so long as he is playing zone. I cant see him staying on a TE or RB 1 on 1

      I thought the same, but Pagano seems to think otherwise. Confuses the crap out of me

        That’s what I keep whining about. He has players with great skill sets, and doesn’t use them. Or just doesn’t trust them. If he get’s beat, let em’. Te’o can’t learn anything watching from the sidelines taking “mental reps”.
