Practice Report: Who Impressed on Monday?

TOP PLAYS:

Damion Square gobbled up the running back for a huge tackle for loss.

Tyrell Williams had a long catch-and-run on a perfect rainbow throw by Kellen Clemens.

Jahleel Addae high pointed the ball for an interception before weaving his way toward the end zone.

Desmond King came off the edge for a would-be sack.

Brett Boyko opened up a massive hole for Branden Oliver to burst through.

Derek Watt caught an outlet pass crossing over the middle and turned it into a nice gain.

Kellen Clemens connected with Isaiah Burse on a deep bomb.

Tenny Palepoi got Defensive Coordinator Gus Bradley juiced with a monster run stuff.

Sean McGrath made a leaping grab along the sideline over a defender.

Kenjon Barner made a nice juke to run by a defender and gain more yardage.

Cardale Jones threw a bullet to Da'Ron Brown where only the wideout could snare it.

Austin Ekeler used his hands to corral a pass and run upfield.

Chris McCain lived in the backfield, using his speed to get a pair of sacks.

Melvin Ingram came around the edge for a strip-sack.

Michael Davis stayed stride-for-stride with the speedy Tyrell Williams to break up a pass.

Brad Watson had a pair of nice plays, including his first interception of training camp.

WHO IMPRESSED:

Ricky Henne's Take:So much is said about Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa, but I thought some of the unheralded members of the defensive line had a nice day.  Tenny Palepoi was his usual energetic self, earning praise from Defensive Coordinator Gus Bradley after one particular run stuff. Chris McCain showed his trademark speed around the corner, easily "sacking" the quarterback on a pair of rushes.

Hayley Elwood's Take:I was really impressed with Sean McGrath today.  The tight end competition behind Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry is fierce, and McGrath made a case for himself.  Those who know Sean know he's a favorite in the locker room, but he had a series of catches today that were impressive.  The best was when he was stride for stride with a defensive back looking to take in a pass.  As he neared the ball, he took a step to cut in front of the DB to complete the catch despite the defensive player attempting to get his hands on the ball. 

ODDS AND ENDS:

Philip Rivers and Antonio Gates were given the day off.

The team announced three transactions, signing tight end Mike Estes and wide receiver Cameron Posey while waiving/injured Asante Cleveland.

Practice is open to the public again on Tuesday at Jack Hammett Sports Complex.  Gates open at 9:00 a.m.

BOLTS QUOTEBOOK:

*"We're competing (there) right now. Right now Kellen (Clemens) is doing a nice job in that number two spot.  But it's all in a competition. We'll see how it plays out in the games." – *Head Coach Anthony Lynn

*"Right now I think communication can always get better. Communication and technique. We're out there. We're a feisty group. Once we hone into our true selves, hone in and stay in our technique, stay true to us and don't allow other teams to get us outside of our comfort zone, we can be a great team." – *Safety Tre Boston
