The NFL preseason is halfway over and by this point, teams around the league should have a pretty good idea of how their roster is going to look.

Still, two preseason games remain and for a handful of players, those two weeks will be crucial.

NFL rosters contain 53 players entering the season. At this point, it’s likely that 40 of those positions have been penciled in for the Los Angeles Chargers. But like most every team, there are still several questions that must be answered before the season starts,

Coming into the offseason, the Chargers were looking for consistent improvement along the offensive line, more depth at defensive line and a reliable replacement for Tyrell Williams, just to name a few.

How many of these issues have been resolved and how many are still lingering? Have any new issues popped during the course of the offseason? That will all be discussed here.

Still, on the preseason slate, the Chargers will battle the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers. During those games, the team will attempt to have everything made crystal clear before going behind closed doors and putting together the 53-man roster.

Here are the decisions that don’t yet have a clear answer ahead of those two games.
