OVERHEARD: "Tre' just likes to talk in general, which is OK," said Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn, when asked if the secondary was communicating more on Wednesday. Of course, Lynn was referring to new safety Tre' Boston, who's always talking and has become one of the vocal leaders of the defensive backfield.

ROOKIE REPORT: After playing well against the Seattle Seahawks last week, rookie defensive back Desmond King had another strong performance during practice, looking comfortable as a nickel defender with Casey Hayward resting a hamstring strain. Third rounder Dan Feeney got a handful of reps at right guard and remains part of the competition with Kenny Wiggins for the starting job.

PLAY OF THE DAY: There were two actually. Chargers WR Geremy Davis, made a nice, one-handed catch on a fade route from quarterback Kellen Clemens. And safety Dwight Lowery extended for a low ball on a deep pass to Keenan Allen, picking off a Philip Rivers' pass for an interception.

INJURY UPDATE: Chargers CB Casey Hayward tweaked a hamstring midway through practice and the team shut it down for the rest of the day. Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said he didn't think it was anything serious. Other players that did not practice on Wednesday include RB Kenjon Barner (concussion), DE Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring), TE Jeff Cumberland (legs), TD Sean McGrath (knee), CB Craig Mager (unknown), CB Trovon Reed (hip) and LB Denzel Perryman (ankle).

Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley did not like the energy his defense played with during his team's 48-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in team's preseason opener last week. However, Bradley said Wednesday's practice in full pads was much better. "I showed multiple times plays being made and not a lot of enthusiasm," Bradley said. "But again, I think it's being out there for the first time and maybe playing with some guys you haven't played with, and getting a feel for that."

OVERHEARD: LB Nick Dzubnar, who turned 26 years old Tuesday, gets an opportunity to compete for the starting middle linebacker job with Denzel Perryman out at least two months after ankle surgery. Dzubnar said he's more comfortable in a 4-3 defensive scheme because of his time in college at Cal-Poly. "This is my wheelhouse," he said. "A lot of zone drops, a lot of good eyes on the QB, you just break and play ball. I like it a lot".

Eric D. Williams ESPN Staff Writer 

INJURY UPDATE: The big news is Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said that LB Denzel Perryman will have ankle surgery on Tuesday and is out at least two months. That's a significant setback for the Chargers, who were hoping to avoid some of the rash of injuries they dealt with last season. Along with Perryman, RB Kenjon Barner, DE Jeremiah Attaochu, TE Jeff Cumberland, TE Sean McGrath, CB Craig Mager, CB Trovon Reed and DT Kaleb Eulls did not practice on Tuesday. Lynn said Barner is in the NFL concussion protocol program and Attaochu is week to week with a hamstring injury. WR Andre Patton returned to practice. CB Brad Watson, who did not play against the Seattle Seahawks, had his left hand wrapped in a club and practiced.
