San Diego Chargers starting LT Jared Gaither is still not practicing, so undrafted free agent Mike Harris was told that he will start against the Oakland Raiders on Monday Night. He will have to deal with a tough crowd and the big rivalry.

The Chargers are looking to add a veteran left tackle through free agency. If they bring a vet in, he would still have to learn the system, so this first game will be in the hands of the rookie.

Let’s pray Harris can get the job done. Do we believe?
