Injured Chargers RG Jeromey Clary (hip, PUP) has agreed to a $2.95 million pay cut.

Recovering from hip and shoulder operations, Clary has slashed his salary from $4.55 million to $1.6 million, likely saving his roster spot. Clary is shaping up as a candidate to spend the first six games of the season on reserve/PUP, leaving third-rounder Chris Watt in the driver's seat at right guard.

Chargers rookie OG Chris Watt was removed from Saturday's practice for precautionary reasons.

Watt was carted off due to heatstroke, but is expected to be fine. The No. 89 overall pick, Watt has reportedly shown well early in camp. With Jeromey Clary on active/PUP, Watt should continue to push for first-team reps at right guard.

Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman has had a "productive start" to training camp.

"He's done a nice job the past couple of days," said coach Mike McCoy. "He had a nice offseason also." The top of the Chargers' wide receiver depth chart is set, but Inman could carve out a role as a reserve receiver and special teams player. Inman posted a 50-739-6 line for the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL last season.

Chargers rookie G Chris Watt was carted off the field during Saturday's practice.

The severity of the injury is unknown. Watt kneeled for several minutes on the sideline before being carted off the field. He walked very slowly into the training room. Watt has been working at right guard with Jeromey Clary still recovering from offseason surgeries to both his hip and shoulder.

Chargers teammates have nicknamed seventh-round WR Tevin Reese "Sweet Feet" for his speed and acceleration.

"Kid can smoke," observed backup QB Kellen Clemens. Reese stands just 5-foot-10, 163, but ran 4.46 at the Combine with a 41-inch vertical. "That's how DeSean Jackson was -- little and fast," said WR Malcom Floyd. "He shocked the NFL." Reese is competing for one of San Diego's final wide receiver spots.

Chargers first-round CB Jason Verrett (shoulder) opened camp with the starters.

Verrett lined up on the right side with Richard Marshall on the left, and Brandon Flowers was the second-team left corner. The Chargers have successfully morphed from one of the league's worst corner situations to a mediocre one. Verrett's quicker than expected return to health is a bonus.
Jul 24 - 12:15 PM

Antonio Gates (personal) rejoined the Chargers Wednesday.

Gates missed spring workouts due to an undisclosed family circumstance. He's now back with the team and set to run with emerging stud Ladarius Green in two-tight end formations. Over the final eight games of last season (including playoffs), Gates managed just 3.0 catches for 27.8 yards per day with one touchdown.

Chargers placed RG Jeromey Clary (hip) on the active/PUP list.

Clary underwent offseason hip and shoulder surgeries and was still on crutches last month. There have been rumblings he may not be ready for the opener and could open the season on reserve/PUP, which would keep him sidelined the first six weeks. Rookie Chris Watt will handle starter's reps in Clary's place.

Chargers first-round CB Jason Verrett (shoulder) isn't expected to practice before August.

The Union-Tribune San Diego's Tom Krasovic predicted earlier this month that Verrett would be ready for camp, but August was always his timeline. Verrett underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in March. He needs to return before the third preseason game, or he could be looking awfully green come Week 1.

ESPN Chargers reporter Eric Williams believes walk-year RB Ryan Mathews could be headed into his final season in San Diego.

This is quite possible, but Williams' reasoning is based on the fact that the Chargers now have Danny Woodhead and Donald Brown locked up long term. While both are useful players, neither has the early-down talent Mathews' possesses. If Mathews can stay healthy for the second-consecutive year, there's a good chance he'll be back with the Bolts in 2015. Mathews turns 27 in October.

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports Donald Brown is ticketed for "grunt work" in San Diego.

The word comes straight from GM Tom Telesco. That is not to say Brown will receive zero touches, but Ryan Mathews will remain the Bolts' primary grinder, with Danny Woodhead monopolizing passing-down looks. Brown will be tasked with picking up blitzes and other dirty work. We wouldn't expect more than 5-6 touches per game. He does make for a slightly intriguing deeper-league handcuff.
Jul 22 - 6:46 PM

Chargers signed RB Danny Woodhead to a two-year contract extension through 2016.

Financial terms are not yet available, though Woodhead is currently scheduled to make $1.75 million this season. That figures to be bumped up. Heading into his age-29 campaign, Woodhead set new career highs with 76 catches and 106 carries in 2013. He'll remain the Bolts' primary passing-down back this season. Ideally, Woodhead is an RB3/flex in PPR leagues.

The Union-Tribune San Diego's Tom Krasovic says rookie CB Jason Verrett (shoulder) is expected to be ready for camp.

Verrett was expected to be out until at least August recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum. The early return helps his chances at earning a starting job in camp, and at the very least Verrett should contribute in sub packages as a rookie. The additions of Verrett and newly-signed Brandon Flowers should make the Chargers secondary a more formidable force this season.

According to the Union-Tribune San Diego, Ryan Mathews weighed 227 pounds at Chargers minicamp, down nine pounds from that time last year.

We now have conflicting reports on his weight, as a June 17 U-T San Diego story stated Mathews "weighs 222 pounds, up seven from last August." We typically prefer running backs to play at lighter weights, where they can be more fluid and explosive. Mathews is currently training in Los Angeles to prepare for camp.
Jul 17 - 11:01 AM

Chargers RG Jeromey Clary (hip, shoulder surgeries) missed all of spring practices and was still on crutches as of mid to late June.

The U-T San Diego calls Clary a "player to watch" due to uncertain health. The Chargers did draft Chris Watt in the third round, and he could threaten Clary's job even at 100 percent. With or without Clary, San Diego's offensive line should be plenty functional in 2014 after a rock-solid 2013 showing.
