Some starters will lose their jobs on the LA Chargers.

The LA Chargers are fully underway in training camp and we are oh so close to Charger football returning. Sunday, August 23, marked three weeks until the Bolts will be back in action when they take on Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1.

There have been quite a few developments in training camp thus far. While it has not been the normal training camp, as there have been no preseason games, there have still been some interesting narratives to follow.

One of the narratives that we have missed out on is the position battle narratives. While that is certainly alive and well, it is not as prominent as previous years as we do not have games in front of us for the fans to analyze.

However, just looking at how the roster is built and the way that the team makes decisions, we can pinpoint certain players that are most likely going to lose their starting jobs in 2020. Whether they were starters last year, or will be starters to begin the season and lose it during the year, three players are on Bolts are prime candidates to go ride the pine more.

Note: Tyrod Taylor is NOT included in this list.

We thought it would be valuable to establish this early on but Tyrod Taylor is most likely not going to lose his starting job to Justin Herbert in 2020. We broke down why Herbert won’t start a single game (barring an injury to Taylor) in a previous article.

Let’s get into the candidates.
