    <blockquote>By Forrest Overin

    Less than two weeks ago, Cletis Gordon was, more or less, just another face in the training camp crowd, toiling in relative anonymity. In the blink of an eye, though, things can change. Sometimes drastically.

    One moment, Darren Sproles is penciled in as the Chargers' primary punt and kick returner, and the next, he breaks a leg and is lost for the year, leaving the team scrambling to find someone to take over a job that pretty much amounts to poking a sleeping, hungry lion with a stick.

    So it is that Gordon suddenly finds himself in the spotlight, auditioning to be the club's return specialist. One of a couple dozen free agents signed by the Chargers shortly after the draft last April, the rookie from Jackson State has gotten off to a fine start, breaking loose for a 53 yard return on the opening kickoff of last week's game against the Bears.</blockquote>
