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 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.”

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said rookies Uchenna Nwosu and Kyzir White both have sore knees and did not practice Tuesday. However, Lynn said both are expected to play this weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. CB Trevor Williams (ankle), LB James Onwualu (groin), WR Dylan Cantrell (knee), TE Cole Hunt (knee), DT Justin Jones (ankle) and TE Hunter Henry (knee) also did not practice. RB Justin Jackson (hamstring) returned to practice.

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn had this to say when asked by reporters about the possibility of Antonio Gates still returning to the team. Tight ends were responsible for five drops against the Cardinals. “We've talked to Antonio and we're still talking with him," Lynn said. "I don't know where that's going to go. We need to make more plays at the tight end position. We dropped some balls today that should have been caught. I expected that to get better.”

That rookie could start: Second-round selection Uchenna Nwosu was impressive, recording two tackles, a sack and two quarterback hits. Nwosu was part of a second-unit defense that included fellow rookies Derwin James and Kyzir White. All three played with a lot of energy. White finished with three tackles, a tackle on special teams and a nice block on a punt return.

In the battle for the No. 2 quarterback job behind Philip Rivers, Geno Smith appeared to seize control of the competition by completing 14 of 23 for 218 yards, including a 47-yard TD strike to receiver Geremy Davis. However, Smith also lost a fumble and threw an interception off a tipped pass intended for Davis. Cardale Jones started the game and had an uneven performance, finishing 6 of 12 for 50 yards, with no touchdowns and no interceptions. Jones was sacked once, posting a 61.1 passer rating. Second-year running back Austin Ekeler showed his rookie season wasn't a fluke, finishing with 64 yards from scrimmage, including a 39-yard reception and 20-yard run.

Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said becoming a better tackling team has been a point of emphasis during training camp, and is something he will closely evaluate from his defense against the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday.
