The RT battle is still at a stalemate

Some were displeased at the placement of Storm Norton above Trey Pipkins on the unofficial depth chart, but it's clear that it doesn't mean much at this point. Effectively what the placement and -OR- designation tells you in the case of RT is that the incumbent Norton has the job until Pipkins could take it from him.

The bigger storyline here is there hasn't been much movement at all in the battle to this point. In the macro, that was probably always going to be the case until the preseason gets underway. But it is a *little* disappointing that it's been crickets so far.

At the scrimmage, Pipkins allowed three pressures while Norton allowed two pressures and a sack. Statistically they've been pretty identical in camp to this point without either taking a lead (or falling behind, for that matter).

I'll be curious to see how the Chargers dispense the snap counts and offensive line locations for the two in the preseason that Remember, Rashawn Slater isn't playing in the preseason at all like he did in spurts last year. A likely configuration in the right tackle battle is that we could see Norton and Pipkins on the field together at RT and LT against the Rams this week.

There's not heads or tails to be made of this positional battle right now.
