Training Camp Recap: Aug. 16

Posted by Christopher Smith on August 16, 2011 – 7:40 PM

Just like that, training camp is over at Chargers Park.

Yes, it officially continues another week through Tuesday morning, but Monday will be a day off for the players. The team leaves for Dallas tomorrow afternoon and will practice three more times before Sunday night’s game.

Head Coach Norv Turner cancelled the Wednesday practice. Dallas also will not practice Wednesday.

“We’re traveling tomorrow and we’ll have two very good practices (with the Cowboys) Thursday and Friday,” Turner said.

He planned to consider nixing the Wednesday practice but left it on the schedule to make sure the players went hard this week. After what he deemed “outstanding” practices Saturday, Sunday and Monday, he let the players know they’d have Wednesday free before Tuesday’s session started.

“I thought it would really energize practice and it did,” Turner said. “We had an oustanding practice. We had a physical practice. And we had a high-energy practice. When you go out and do that, I think you get better.”

WR Travon Patterson tries to keep the ball from crossing the plane during a special teams coverage drill.

WR Richard Goodman tries his hand at the drill as Cris Dishman watches.

LB Darryl Gamble, one of the stars of the preseason opener, tries to get around T Stephen Schilling in a 1-on-1 pass rush drill.

FS Eric Weddle watches as RB Ryan Mathews tries to find running room through the left side of the line.

OLB Shaun Phillips and ILB Jonas Mouton try to snag RB Mike Tolbert.

Weddle lines up an interception during a defensive back drill.

Stay true and keep pounding,
Christopher
