Training Camp Recap: Aug. 18

Posted by Christopher Smith on August 18, 2011 – 10:12 AM

Thursday morning’s practice session was early for San Diego. The Chargers got practice waking up at a different hour, as breakfast and treatment both began by 4:30 a.m. PT. The team left the hotel for Valley Ranch at 6:15 a.m. PT.

The Chargers and Cowboys got a competitive two-hour practice, beginning with a punt coverage period. Then they split into two fields: San Diego offense vs. Dallas defense; Dallas offense vs. San Diego defense. There were plenty of reps to go around.

The teams seemed aimable, with former Charger Igor Olshansky greeting San Diego’s offensive line with a smile. Only one brief scuffle broke out during practice as the teams managed to stay civil despite the intensity, an obvious notch above normal practice.

The temperature climbed to the upper 90s by the time Thursday's practice finished. These ambulances served as a friendly welcome, the first thing to greet the Chargers at Valley Ranch.

ILB Takeo Spikes takes a squeeze of water on the sideline.

Head Coach Norv Turner catches up with Jason Garrett (right), now the Dallas head coach. Garrett played quarterback for the Cowboys under Turner.

RB Ryan Mathews gets off the bus for Thursday's joint practice.

TE Antonio Gates makes a short catch across the middle.

WR Patrick Crayton finishes a "third down" play. Crayton, a former Cowboy, was swarmed by the Dallas media after practice.

SS Bob Sanders tries to cut off Dallas TE Jason Witten.

G-T Tyronne Green gets some 1-on-1 work with a Dallas defensive lineman.

QB Philip Rivers leads the starting offensive huddle.

Mathews makes a cut downfield, setting up a block by WR Malcom Floyd.

Rivers talks to the WRs between repetitions.

Stay true and keep pounding,
Christopher
