    The last I heard about Byrd was that he was rehabbing and he's out of the hospital

    I have heard that his chances of ever playing football again, is very low.

    Byrd's become a Twitter maven as of late. Can't post what he tweets here. Not exactly 'PG' rated material.

    Curtis Brinkley should be ready to go. Byrd said via Twitter that he will not be playing until 2011.

    Via Twitter .. Byrd says he'll be back on the practice field in 2011. If you ask him something, he'll answer .. ;)

    i heard on the radio that Byrd has been activated from the PUP list.
    prolly about a month ago, but I can't seem to find any articles any where.

    I'm excited about these two young guys and what they might be able to bring to the team!

    Obviously we might not see Byrd for a while yet, but if he comes back and does well...that would have to be one of the great side-stories to come out of the NFL!

    I can't wait to see what Brinkley can do! I hope we have some diamonds in the rough with Brinkley and Mason.

    If the Chargers believe one of these guys will step up then I think that puts a stop to us getting an allround back like Ryan Mathews.

    I can see us trying for Gerhart or Dwyer (maybe even tate)...shame...cos I would love to see Spiller in a Chargers uniform!

    If any of the top DTs aren't there at 28, we still should draft Mathews. Mason will most likely replace Sproles when he's traded and Brinkley will probably be on the practice squad for a few years. Unless a guy like Jared Odrick or Brian Price is on the board, we should draft Mathews.

    Odrick might be on the board, but the chargers don't need a DE that high. Price doesn't it our scheme.

    I think this Boonah boy might have something, look forward to seeing him get his chance. He is 100% motivated no doubt about it, guy is raring to go.
