    “It was a dream come true,” Waters said yesterday, a day after making his NFL playing debut, more than a year into his career. “I just feel like I really contributed to the team. It just felt great to get out there.”

    Waters, an inside linebacker by trade, was in for 19 plays at outside linebacker, where he has been working due to the Chargers' depth shortage there. He also continues to work inside.

    “Anything to get on the field,” said Waters, who was inactive all last season and the first five games of 2008, first rehabbing following ACL surgery and then trying to earn his way onto the field.

    Everyone should play

    Linebacker Jyles Tucker is expected to play Sunday against Buffalo after being sidelined two weeks by a strained hamstring, and Chambers should play after sitting a week with a sprained ankle.

    Turner also said defensive end Luis Castillo (biceps strain), running back Darren Sproles (ankle sprain) and safety Eric Weddle (shoulder sprain) should all play.

    Waters on those first two kick offs didn't make the tackle but he came in their and cleaved through the Patriots wedge like a knife through butter. I love his energy and he's definitely going to be out there more often - now let's see him keep it up

    I want to see more of him on the field, especially in place of Wilhelm. What a problem to have at LB: Cooper, Phillips, Siler, Dobbins, Tucker, Waters, Harris, Merriman. Did I miss anyone? Rotate em' all in and cut them loose!

    Waters was moving around very well out there. He has the best change-of-direction I've seen from on of our ILB's in a while. Hopefully he continues to get his development time. It would be nice for him to be a force by the end of this season.

    Merriman won't be a factor until next year. We do have depth and the guys like Waters, Siler and Tucker will get better as the games pile up.
