Today, the Los Angeles Chargers started the third phase of their offseason schedule: organized team activities. Here are all the updates you need to know from the first day of action.

The only full absentee from the group was star defensive end Melvin Ingram. His pass rushing partner, Joey Bosa, was at practice after working out away from the team during the voluntary parts of the offseason. After releasing Chris McCain, Chris Landrum is now the next man up at DE, and it’s he who took starter snaps with Ingram absent.

The returning Jason Verrett was active, but didn’t take part in team drills. Trevor Williams continued as the starter.

Forrest Lamp carried out light work on the sideline, whilst coming back from another surgery he underwent around a month ago.

Former 4th round pick Rayshawn Jenkins, is the team’s current free safety over 1st rounder Derwin James. I imagine this won’t last long, but it reaffirms a previous report that the Chargers would try Jenkins at the deeper safety position.

Defensive tackle Corey Liuget was another separated from the main group. He will serve a four-game suspension to start the year after violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing substance policy. 

The Chargers also confirmed that their first day of training camp would be July 28, and will be open to fans.
