The Chargers were at full pads on Tuesday for two hours of practice.
Bolts training camp was the most competitive.
The team is off Wednesday before welcoming the Saints to town for joint practices on Thursday and Friday.
Here are three notes from today’s practice:
The Chargers put together an action-packed overtime period that saw the rookies going up against the reserves with the score at 31.
The Easton Stick were in first place but their drive stalled near midfield after the midfielder came under pressure from Khalil Mack and Derwin James Jr.
Then, Justin Herbert’s unit had two receptions at their own 25-yard line, but they went three-and-out as Michael Jackett was forced to fail to complete a third-down pass to Mike Williams.
The Steak Group came out but couldn’t gain any momentum. Kenneth Murray, Jr. penned a run for the loss on second before a false start pushed the offense to third and well before the punt entered.
Undrafted rookie AJ Finley may have made the camp play when he came up with a diving interception on a pass intended for Gerald Everett.
With the Stick group starting in defensive territory at their own 41-yard line, they picked seven yards to set up a 52-yard field goal attempt from Cameron Decker. But the potential match winner was wide as Herbert’s group took 42 alone.
With only two minutes remaining on the clock, Herbert hit Donald Parham Jr. for a 20-yard touchdown before passing to Keenan Allen (seven yards) and Everett (19 yards) putting the offense in the red zone.
The third unit reduced the clock within 20 seconds before Decker came back and kicked a 29-yard field goal for a 34-31 win for rookies that nearly took the 10-minute overtime session.
