Chargers Overview

Players of note who did not play: QB Phillip Rivers, RB Melvin Gordon, RB Austin Ekeler, WR Keenan Allen, WR Tyrell Williams, WR Mike Williams, WR Travis Benjamin, TE Virgil Green

  • The battle for the primary backup job behind Phillip Rivers continued into this fourth preseason game with Geno Smith getting the start over Cardale Jones. Smith played the first half going 4-of-6 for 16 yards and adding another 26 yards on the ground. Jones played the second half going 3-of-6 for 21 yards. Smith appears to be set as the #2 as he started over Jones and Jones didn’t do anything in this game to unseat Smith.
  • RB Detrez Newsome is a John Hansen favorite as a potential contributor if Melvin Gordon went down. He posted 7/35 rushing in this game.
