Chargers add to offensive line
By Bill Williamson
The Chargers signed veteran tackles Anthony Davis and Michael Toudouze. Both players are vying to make the bottom of the roster. The Chargers are looking for some camp insurance because starting left tackle Jared Gaither has practiced just once this summer.
He will miss Thursday’s preseason opener against Green Bay and may not play next week against Dallas. Undrafted rookie Mike Harris has been playing for Gaither. Gaither should be ready for the regular season, but Harris is very likely nearing himself a roster spot with his unexpected extensive work.
Meanwhile, there is a chance Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers won’t pay at San Diego on Thursday because his starting left tackle, Marshall Newhouse, is out because of a concussion.
