It’s officially football season for the San Diego Chargers.

The team began its Fall Camp on Tuesday at Chargers Park in Murphy Canyon with mostly rookies and a few veterans.

Starting today the entire team will be at the practice facility, gearing up for their first preseason game Aug. 9 against the Green Bay Packers at Qualcomm Stadium.

On Tuesday, though, it was all about the new guys.

“These two days were dealing with our young guys getting back into the swing of things before our veterans get here. We (officially) start practice Thursday,” head coach Norv Turner said.

“The first two days are instillation and we will start over again on Thursday,” Turner added. “It is an opportunity to hear it again, hear it in the huddle again, and hear it in practice."

“Not the volume or numbers but certainly a lot of the main stuff to get them more comfortable.”
