Tuesday’s sessions heated up — literally. With the temperature pressing into the mid-80s, the Chargers took on their final full-squad two-a-day of training camp.

RB Darren Sproles skitters upfield the day after returning to practice following a minor shoulder injury.

The heat approached 90 degrees during the afternoon. What might’ve been a normal or good day in places like New Orleans, Jacksonville or Atlanta still was uncharacteristically warm for this summer in San Diego.

WR Jeremy Williams made this one-handed snag in the end zone late Tuesday, sparking some chatter among his teammates.

Lineman Tyronne Green offers to escort Sproles down the field.

CB Antoine Cason attempts to disrupt WR Malcom Floyd's route near the line of scrimmage.
