The Chargers are open to second-year pro OG Forrest Lamp unseating Michael Schofield at right guard.
Just activated from the PUP list on Monday, Lamp doesn't have a ton of time left to get in shape and win the starting job, but the Bolts would certainly love it if he did. More likely might be Lamp beginning the year on the bench before replacing Schofield some time in September or October. Aug 14 - 3:54 PM

Chargers activated OG Forrest Lamp (knee) from the active/PUP list.

The No. 38 overall pick of the 2017 draft missed his entire rookie season with a torn ACL. He underwent a "minor" follow-up procedure during the offseason. The Chargers were committed to bringing Lamp along slowly and it appears the approach worked. If he can stay healthy and get in shape over the next three weeks, Lamp could begin the year as the Chargers' starting right guard.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco said RG Forrest Lamp (knee) remains without a timetable to return.

Lamp was limited during spring workouts. There's concern he may be dealing with a setback after a "minor procedure" this offseason. Lamp is questionable to be ready for training camp.

NFL Network's Steve Wyche reports Chargers OL Forrest Lamp, who missed his entire rookie season with a torn ACL, underwent a "minor procedure" over the offseason, and has yet to resume working out.

Per coach Anthony Lynn, the No. 38 overall pick of last year's draft will supposedly be cleared soon. Another surgery is never good news but it is still possible Lamp will be ready for training camp. Provided he can get healthy, Lamp will be penciled into one of the Chargers' guard spots.

Chargers OL Forrest Lamp (knee) is the leading candidate to start at right guard.

Lamp was in line to start as a rookie before missing the entire year with a torn ACL. The Chargers expect him to be ready for training camp and are counting on him at one of their guard spots. With Matt Slauson a free agent, Dan Feeney could start opposite Lamp.

Chargers OG Forrest Lamp (knee) is on track for training camp.

Lamp is five months into his ACL rehab. He's been cleared to run but looks likely to sit out OTAs. After missing his entire rookie year, a healthy Lamp should upgrade the interior of the Chargers' offensive line.
Feb 14 - 7:02 PM

Chargers GM Tom Telesco is hopeful 2017 second-round OG Forrest Lamp (ACL) will be ready for OTAs.

Lamp suffered a torn ACL early in training camp. "The positive about him getting hurt early is he’ll be on the field early," Telesco said. "Hopefully at some point in OTAs he’ll work back in." The Chargers' offensive line took a step forward in 2017, and Lamp's healthy return will only help the situation.

Chargers second round RG Forrest Lamp is out for the season with a torn ACL.

It's a huge loss that downgrades what looked like an improved interior line. With Spencer Pulley stepping forward as the Bolts' starting center, the Chargers figure to turn to Matt Slauson and third-round pick Dan Feeney at the guard positions. The Chargers have had terrible luck with their draft picks, as first round WR Mike Williams' season also in jeopardy. Lamp will miss his entire rookie year, but should return near full strength in 2018.

ESPN Chargers reporter Eric Williams wrote second-round RG Forrest Lamp "has looked the part so far."

After cutting Orlando Franklin and D.J. Fluker, the Chargers could end up starting both Lamp and fellow rookie Dan Feeney at their guard spots this season. Lamp is competing with Kenny Wiggins at right guard, and it sounds like he has the early edge.

Chargers signed second-round OG Forrest Lamp, fifth-round CB Desmond King, sixth-round OT Sam Tevi and seventh-round DL Isaac Rochell to four-year contracts.

The Chargers also signed first-rounder Mike Williams on Thursday, avoiding a Joey Bosa-like holdout. Making the conversion from left tackle, Lamp is a high-end athlete for an interior lineman.

Charges GM Tom Telesco expects second-round pick Forrest Lamp to stick at guard as a rookie.

Lamp was a dominant left tackle at Western Kentucky, but he lacks ideal arm length. Nevertheless, Telesco wouldn't rule out a move to tackle down the line. Lamp wouldn't be the first short-armed lineman to succeed at tackle.

Chargers selected Western Kentucky OG Forrest Lamp with the No. 38 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Lamp (6’4/309) was a four-year starter on the Hilltoppers’ line, briefly playing right guard as a redshirt freshman before moving to left tackle after three games and manning the blind side the rest of his career. Mike Mayock called Lamp’s 2016 game against Alabama "the best OL tape I’ve seen in years." Lamp lacks ideal length with 32 ¼-inch arms, but possesses massive hands (10 5/8") and posted the second-highest SPARQ score among offensive linemen at the Combine. Lamp’s likeliest NFL position is on the interior, but it wouldn’t be shocking if he stayed at tackle in the mold of Texans LT Duane Brown.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the Dolphins are not "locked in" on Western Kentucky OG Forrest Lamp at No. 22 overall.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline spoke to "several people" last week who believed Miami was "locked in" on Lamp. That doesn't sound like it's the case, as Salguero adds that multiple other things would have to happen for the Dolphins to settle for Lamp. Miami's brass has no inclinations to take a guard early in the draft. Pass rushers and cornerbacks are perceived as more pressing needs.
