San Diego hasn’t held back in playing their top stars in the preseason thus far. In the Chargers’ 20-14 loss to Seattle last week, LaDainian Tomlinson, Phillip Rivers, Antonio Gates, and Shawne Merriman all played. Tomlinson carried the ball four times for 10 yards while Darren Sproles also had four carries for 11 yards. Rivers threw for just 26 yards on 5-of-8 passing while Charlie Whitehurst threw for 193 yards on 15-of-29 passing with one touchdown and two interceptions. Rookie linebacker Larry English will miss Saturday’s game with a left hamstring injury.

The backup quarterback battle has been the main storyline in Arizona as Matt Leinart threw for 83 yards on 8-of-14 passing last week in a 20-10 loss to Pittsburgh, while Brian St. Pierre was 4-for-10 passing for 42 yards and one interception. Steve Breaston continued to impress, as he caught five passes for 52 yards in the loss. Rookie running back Chris Wells is still nursing an injured ankle and may miss his second-straight game for Arizona.
