Good morning. Ricky Henne of Chargers.com provides an update on San Diego Chargers reserve quarterback Brad Sorensen.

Henne writes that Sorensen has a better grasp of the team’s offense in his second season. The Southern Utah product is probably a year away from pushing for the No. 2 job. How he plays during exhibition play will be an important part of measuring Sorensen’s development.
