The preseason is over and Week 1, complete with much more exciting football, is on the horizon.

The Los Angeles Chargers concluded the preseason on Thursday night against the San Francisco 49ers. To say it has been a rough preseason for the Chargers would be an understatement and that has nothing to do with how the team performed on the field.

Melvin Gordon chose to hold out for more money (and still is), Russell Okung faced a life-altering condition and Derwin James suffered an injury that will keep him out for most of the season.

Each of those situations will have an impact on the 53-man roster.

And speaking of the 53-man roster, just who is going to be a part of it? Now that the preseason games are over, the team has until 4:00 pm ET on Saturday to trim their roster from 90 players down to the 53 mandated by the league.

That’s a lot of guys looking for new jobs.

That leaves Tom Telesco and his staff with some tough decisions to make. But between training camp practices and four preseason games, they’ve seen all that they can see before the Indianapolis Colts come to visit in Week 1.

So who will be on that final roster, you ask? Read on to find out.
