    Dielman sits; McMichael scare

    Tuesday, August 10, 2010 at 7:42 p.m.

    Randy McMichael went down with a scream midway through this afternoon's practice after being rolled up from behind by Mike Tolbert.
    McMichael stayed on the ground as his teammates were noticeably shaken. McMichael figures big in the Chargers' offensive plans this year, as the team now has three experienced players at the position, all with speed and ability to catch.
    McMichael got up a few minutes later and returned to practice.

    • Brandyn Dombrowski, who had missed three practices with a tight groin, returned to the field, and the man who replaced him slid over one spot. Tyronne Green worked with the first team at his natural position of left guard, in place of Kris Dielman. The three-time Pro Bowler jammed his neck on Monday. It is not known how long he'll be out.
    • Antonio Gates returned to practice after one day off with a tight hamstring. Also back working full was Buster Davis, who had missed five practices with a sore hamstring. Mike Tolbert (hamstring) worked more than he had but was limited in team drills. Darrell Stuckey was in full pads and did some individual work but did not participate in team drills.
    • Larry English (foot), Scott Mruczkowski (ankle) and Brandon Siler (ankle) remained sidelined.
    • Ryan Mathews is constantly working on his pass receiving. He often spends the special teams period playing catch, as he did today with Gates. And he continues to catch 50 passes from the JUGS machine after every practice.
    • Seyi Ajirotutu is improving rapidly. The ball he stole from cornerback Brandon Hughes on a slant today was just the latest sign of his asserting himself as he becomes more comfortable. As the preseason starts, it might actually be a race between he and Jeremy Williams for that final receiver spot.
    • Coaches have talked about Antwan Applewhite at ILB, and he's worked him there in games. But he's having a nice camp (as an OLB). Even with Donald Butler down, it's likely James Holt who will take his spot while Applewhite remains outside.
