    From Chargers.com: T Nick Becton was signed today and Fozzy was released to make room on the roster. Becton was here for training camp.

    G - T Steve Schilling was re-signed a couple of days ago. For the game versus Dallas tomorrow, in addition to the names on the back of the jerseys the guys on the O-line should wear the " Hello, My name is..." name tags on the front of the jerseys. I hope this jigsaw puzzle of an offensive line can hold up tomorrow!

    As long as it's not a cloud of dust, and the returner only makes it out to the 19...

    Hopefully, whoever our returner is will only field one kickoff today---and if he only makes it out to the 19 it will be the Cowgirl's 19.

    Royal is now listed as WR-KR on the official roster.

    So the leading WR will be returning kicks?

    I hope Tutu is active for this game.

    Imagine they'll use Allen for PRs too. Look this is a temporary move until Dunlap is ready to go, which will likely be next week. Foz was released and told he'll be brought back in a week or so. I wouldn't be overly worried about it; the Chargers depth is just atrocious now and it wasn't that stellar to begin with.

    Tutu was on special teams, I guess they moved the rookie Allen in as the next receiver. And I personally, am glad that they did. (It's a fantasy league thing...)

    Brown. Royal is still a target, and will probably get more red zone targets than the other two. Allen is an up & comer who the team will try and work in as much as possible.

    Hawkins will likely be the KR/PR - no way they risk Royal on this. It's unfortunate but Fozzy hadn't done alot since he got to SD, he kinda ended up in the Bryan Walters model

    The way the talking heads wrote it up, as long as Royal is in the game and drawing up double coverage, it frees up all of our other receivers. And as you saw last week, that is a good thing.

    It is, but I think Gates might be drawing them this week...

    ^^^ If that happens, then they will be going right back to Royal and the other hot receivers. Even the rookie might get a crack at his first TD for this game...
