INJURY UPDATE: TE Antonio Gates, S Dwight Lowery and DT Brandon Mebane were given veteran days off as the Chargers held their final practice of training camp at Jack Hammett Sports Complex. The practice was closed to the public. Along with those three, TE Jeff Cumberland (hamstring), TE Sean McGrath (knee), DE Jerry Attaochu (hamstring), T Tyreek Burwell (hand), CB Trovon Reed (hip), CB Casey Hayward (hamstring), WR Dontrelle Inman (unknown), LB Denzel Perryman (ankle) and G Forrest Lamp (knee) did not practice. WR Mike Williams remains on the PUP list with a back issue, but Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said the Clemson product can run full sprints and is ahead of schedule. The Chargers still have no time table for Williams' return. The Chargers will hold their first practice at the team's new facility, the Hoag Performance Center, on Thursday.

Chargers QB Philip Rivers said he does not expect things to get heated when he faces the Rams on Saturday, 17 days after the two teams have three fights during a joint scrimmage. Rivers had a running conversation during the joint practice between Rams' defensive backs, along with former Chargers defensive coaches in Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and linebackers coach Joe Barry. "It was all in fun, just like the same chirping I do with my own teammates out here," Rivers said.

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn on if there's a rivalry between the Chargers and Rams in LA: "Not really because neither one of us have done anything yet. So you've got to do something first. Maybe the fight is between the marketing departments, I don't know."

INJURY UPDATE: CB Craig Mager returned to practice after missing the first two preseason games with a hamstring injury. The injury was the same hamstring Mager tore as a rookie, so the Chargers' training staff took extra precaution, Mager said. Left tackle Russell Okung returned to practice after missing last week's game against the Saints with an ankle issue. However, right tackle Joe Barksdale, who also missed last week, remained out with a sore foot. Lynn said that Barksdale is day-to-day. Backup tackle Tyreek Burwell had his broken right hand wrapped, but could play if he needs to this week against the Rams, Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said. Others who did not practice on Tuesday include Forrest Lamp (knee), Denzel Perryman (ankle), Jerry Attaochu (hamstring), Trovon Reed (hip), Casey Hayward (hamstring), Kenneth Farrow (ankle), Sean McGrath (knee), Mike Williams (back) and Jeff Cumberland (legs). Receiver Dontrelle Inman got dinged up midway through practice, leaving the field on his own and did not return with an undisclosed injury.

Rams coach Sean McVay, on whether he anticipates animosity in the preseason game against the Chargers (there were three fights during their last joint practice in Irvine): "I think it's going to be a great, competitive game."

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said his offense is running vanilla stuff, but still no excuse for scoring zero points on the last 17 drives. "No doubt about it, and that's something that we're going to address as a coaching staff," Lynn said. "We want to be more explosive and more dynamic not matter what we're running."

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said the "Mike" LB (Nick Dzubnar) failed to get over the top of his block on the 50-yard TD run by New Orleans RB Alvin Kamara. "He's not the only on to make a play, but that's where the hole came from," Lynn said.

Eric D. Williams ESPN Staff Writer 

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said Kellen Clemens remains his team's No. 2 quarterback over Cardale Jones. "Cardale's learning," Lynn said. "He's been here 2 ½ weeks, but he's not there yet."
