    Michael Turner ran well last night. He could have easily rushed for 100+ yards. He finished with 70 tards on only 8 carries.

    With Pro Bowl running back LaDainian Tomlinson resting, Turner got the majority of the playing time with the first unit Thursday night in the Chargers' exhibition season opener against the Green Bay Packers.

    It's a big summer for Turner as he attempts to seize the job left vacant after the team released Jesse Chatman, Tomlinson's productive backup last season.
