Chargers back at practice following 1st game

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Chargers returned to practice on Saturday ready to recuperate after their first preseason game.

"The most important thing is to get them back into the flow of things," coach Mike McCoy said. "They are sore, there are bumps and bruises from playing a physical game. A lot of guys played a lot of snaps."

Not everyone was back in action two days after San Diego beat the Dallas Cowboys 27-7. Among those sitting out of practice were defensive end Lawrence Guy, defensive backs Brandon Flowers and Marcus Cromartie, wide receivers Vincent Brown and Tevin Reese and offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger.

The Chargers declined to disclose their injuries or when they might return.

Outside linebacker Dwight Freeney and defensive end Corey Liuget practiced after missing Thursday's game.

San Diego released injured linebacker Alvin Scioneaux and signed free agent linebacker Victor Aiyewa. The 6-foot-1, 219-pound Aiyewa played in five games with the Green Bay Packers last season and had four tackles. Aiyewa, who also spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before going to the Packers, is expected to play inside linebacker for the Chargers.

"He was the guy we had targeted on our list to bring him in," McCoy said.

Scioneaux hurt his knee in Thursday's game and will be placed on injured reserve if he clears waivers.
