Chargers to practice with Cowboys
By Bill Williamson
SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Chargers will have some late-training camp visitors this month.
The Chargers announced they will host the Dallas Cowboys for two combined practice on Aug. 20-21 at Chargers Park. The practices are not open to the public.
The workouts will occur after the Chargers host the Cowboys at Qualcomm Stadium on Aug. 18. Often, when teams practice together, the combined workouts occur prior to the preseason game.
Thursday evening post-practice notes:
- Receiver Robert Meachem was practicing Thursday after he left Wednesday night’s practice with an injury, Meachem is fine.
- Several veterans were given the day off Thursday to rest.
- Running back Ryan Mathews looked good in goal-line situations. He is going to have an increased role, so his work at the goal line is important.
- Fourth-round pick Ladarius Green had a nice day of practice. The tight end looks comfortable in the red zone. He still needs to learn how to block, but he has NFL-ready hands.
