The first day of training camp has just completed and here are a couple of notes from the day.

From what it sounds like, someone does not know what the red jerseys on the quarterbacks mean. Charlie Whitehurst was hit during practice and busted his knee. He had to sit out after the hit and the extent of the injury is not known yet. He was able to walk off the field on his own power though.

Jared Gaither had cramping in his back and had to get it iced . He was taken off of the field on a cart, but the injury does not sound serious.

Marcus Gilchrist left the field with cramps and Ryan Mathews had to have one of his toes re-wrapped. Mathews also showed up to camp as a blonde.

Corey Liuget came into camp at 299 pounds after playing last season at a weight of about 315. Will the weigh loss help or hurt him?

Brandyn Dombrowski did not pass his physical with a cyst on his foot and is expected to miss about 2 months. He was not put onto IR, but that could be a possibility as the season gets closer.

So far, Larry English has not gone down with an injury, so the people that had the first day of training camp in the pool LOST! Sorry!

Practice will be open to the public on Saturday, so get out to Chargers Park to check out the new look team.
