San Diego Chargers Notes, Quotes 2008-08-25
--Tight end Antonio Gates (toe) is off the PUP list and is practicing with more regularity. That said, the toe is still bothering him and he has told some close to him it's going to be a long season as he tries to compensate for the pain he is still feeling. "It's one of those things where it feels really good one day and you come back another day and it's sore."


--To build some team spirit, coach Norv Turner cancelled the last morning practice of training camp and sent the players off to a local water park to have fun. "I thought it was a great break for our guys," Turner said. "The roar that came out of the meeting room when I said those two words -- water park -- was pretty loud."

--Center Jeremy Newberry continues to run with the starters, as Nick Hardwick is likely to miss the first month of the season with a foot injury. "I'm approaching it as whatever this team needs me to do, I'll do it."

--Defensive end Luis Castillo is easing back into action after being slowed by a bad back. "If this were the regular season, I'd be playing," Castillo said. "We're being smart with it and now we'll start pushing it a little bit."

--The Chargers attracted 28,507 fans to their 13 open training-camp practices. That topped last season's total of 23,158.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "There are a lot of guys that probably played the most they've played in an NFL game to this point. I told them it's a lot different making a play compared to putting together 12 to 15 plays in a row and operating and managing the game." -- Coach Norv Turner, on his backup players, after leaving most of the starters on the bench in the 7-6 loss to the Rams.
