Time to wrap up some of the notes from the game on Saturday. Here are a few more notes from the game as we move onto Minnesota.

Mike Harris is not ready (yet)On the first pass play from scrimmage, Harris was bulled over and gave up a sack. Thank goodness DeMarcus Ware sat out the game, because things could have got ugly. The offense had to help him out by sliding over tight ends and running backs on his side. His test this week: Jared Allen.

Ronnie Brown will be used a lot in the passing gameBrown led the team in receptions and was second in receiving yards in his first day of action as the lead back. He will get the majority of action with Ryan Mathews sitting sideline.

Jarret Johnson is not a good pass rusherHe never had been hyped up as a good pass rusher, but the difference between Melvin Ingram and Johnson is night and day. Would love to see Ingram get more first team action in this next preseason game.

Philip Rivers will not finish the season with ZERO interceptionsThe interceptions are a little concerning, but it is still preseason. He probably will throw one interception in the regular season.

What other things did you learn from the game?
