Next man up was the rookie from Florida International University, Tourek Williams.

The depth on the defensive side of the ball is paper-thin. If the Chargers expect to compete, they have to be relatively healthy on that side of the football and there will have to be a few backups that step up and make good plays. Williams will be one of those guys.

Freeney is excited about the kids potential, but we still haven’t put the pads on yet;

We will see. The pads are on today and we will all see what the reactions are then. Hopefully he is still shining bright like a diamond (sorry for the Rihanna).
