That guy could start: Second-year pro Mike Williams is fourth on the depth chart at receiver. However, the Clemson product is playing like someone who could see significant targets on game days, as Williams hauled in a 25-yard catch for a score from Geno Smith in the second half, his first touchdown in exhibition play.

After struggling to defend the run against the Arizona Cardinals last week, the Los Angeles Chargers were stout up front defensively in facing the Seattle Seahawks, holding them to 3.7 yards per carry in the first half. The Chargers also had a goal line stand and held Seattle's starting offense to just six points, sacking Russell Wilson twice. J.J. Jones, an undrafted rookie out West Georgia, had the highlight of the game for the Chargers, breaking loose for a 72-yard punt return for a score. Jones could challenge Travis Benjamin for the starting return job. Undrafted rookie RB Detrez Newsome also had another good day, finishing with 78 rushing yards.

Highlight reel touchdown catch by Mike Williams,as he went high over Seattle Seahawks CB Akeem King to make the grab for a 25-yard score. That's the type of play Williams has been making all training camp.

J.J. Jones shows some explosiveness and speed on a 72-yard punt return for a score. Jones has a shot to earn a spot on the back end of the roster if he can prove that he can handle the return duties for the Chargers.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco and head coach Anthony Lynn will fly to Stockton, California on Friday, the team's off day, for the memorial service of Faye Spanos, the wife of Chargers owner Alex Spanos, who passed last week at the age of 92. The Chargers will continue to wear a pink decal on their helmets with Faye's name on it to honor her memory for the rest of the season. Pink was Faye's favorite color. The Chargers will have a moment of silence for Faye before the team's first home game against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday.

Went to Rams and Chargers camps today. They're both supremely talented on offense and defense. The biggest discrepancy is their kicking situation. Greg Zuerlein, coming off back surgery, nailed a 60-yard field goal with ease and looks totally healthy now. He might be the best kicker in the league again. For the Chargers, neither Caleb Sturgis nor Roberto Aguayo have separated themselves. Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said opening with two kickers on the active roster is "a possibility."

Chargers kicking competition Day 4: Caleb Sturgis finished 7 of 7 with a long of 53 yards. Roberto Aguayo finished 4 of 7, missed from 41, 50 and 53.

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn gave several starters the day off today, including Philip Rivers, Keenan Allen, Melvin Ingram, Casey Hayward, Melvin Gordon, Denzel Perryman, Jahleel Addae, Virgil Green and the entire offensive line.

Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt said Philip Rivers had thrown just one interception in training camp, so it's no surprise the defense was excited to get back-to-back interceptions from Desmond King and Casey Hayward against the veteran quarterback on Tuesday, in a practice closed to the public. Rivers finished with just 10 interceptions in 2017, and it continues to be a focus for him this year. “There's no question that Coach (Anthony) Lynn made it a point of emphasis on being better in the turnover department on both sides of the ball,” Whisenhunt said. “And Philip worked hard at it.”
