Jason Verrett and Brandon Flowers not expected to play Thursday


After I posted up a piece on the different things that I wanted to watch this Thursday with the San Diego Chargers playing against the Dallas Cowboys, I get this news:

Jason Verrett and Brandon Flowers both will likely be sitting on the sideline for the game. Both were listed by name in the article that I just posted!

I guess we will have to see Steve Williams and Shareece Wright get some playing time on defense. Richard Marshall has been getting some love in training camp as well. They are not the corners that I would want to see in the first preseason game, but they will have to do.

Why does it seem that every year we have a rookie miss some time in the preseason? Every season it is some high draft pick that has to wait some time before they are able to get on the field? I am sure it happens to every team, but it is annoying as hell! As long as these guys are healthy during the regular season, that is all I am asking for!

    As long as their 100% come day 1, I’m good with it!

  • arnie

    I’m cool with this. To me this speaks volumes of the two CB that there is no doubt they will be playing. I’d rather wait until the red shirt is off, of he’s a 100%. As for flowers I think it’s safe to say schaub

  • Stefanie Smith

    I just checked on the Chargers’ website and they are still saying that Flowers is playing. Who knows? Guess we will have to wait until Thursday.

    So we play our starters from last season’s playoff run. That group surprised everyone. Teams want to try and go deeeeeeep on the Bolts…we go very deep with depth – thats fantastic- I love me some Tom Telesco !

  • Marcel West-Bailey

    I saw some Vines on the Chargers page and Flowers was getting beat by everybody. Hopefully that’s caused by his injury
