Chargers just lose former first-round CB Jason Varrett deu new injury
Starting tight end Hunter Henry went down with a torn ACL in May, but Antonio Gates’ return for a 16th season seems imminent.
The Chargers went 9-7 in 2017, missing the postseason on a tiebreaker. However they appear to have solved the kicking issues that fed last year’s 0-4 start. An offense that ranked fourth should also get fresh contributions from receiver Mike Williams and lineman Forrest Lamp, the club’s top two picks in the 2017 draft. Both were victimized by injuries that ruined their rookie seasons.
Despite heavy preseason buzz, the Chargers have never won a Super Bowl and have been absent from the playoffs since 2013.
