Apparently the news we brought you last night about a Larry English foot injury wasn't as bad as it might have been. He was back at practice on Monday and doing quite well, according to several reports anyway.
Could it be time to break out the Charger Kool-aid? You decide. Remember, the season is still 41 days away.
On Monday, the North County Times' Scott Bair reported:
"Top developments from Monday's practice
1. OLB Larry English is having a great camp. He was in the backfield several times during the morning workout, creating pressure he couldn't generate last season. He seems much more comfortable at linebacker -- he played defensive end in college -- a positive sign with Merriman continuing his holdout."
The same day, Bleacher Report, which publishes an internet newsletter on the Chargers had this from its analyst Jeremy Beckett:
"Believe The Hype:
Sign on San Diego reported that Larry English positively tore it up at practice today. Stating not only will he make Chargers fans forget about Shawne Merriman, but Junior Seau as well.
Apparently, English got to the quarterback on nearly every passing play.
Whats with the Change? So good, so fast, how?
English played his college ball at Northern Illinois as a defensive end. He was converted to Outside Linebacker when he became a Charger.
Although he was very close to a lot of big plays last season, he fell just short. He has devoted his off season into learning his new position, and developing a passion for it. That passion cant be denied. English is going to shock a lot of folks this year."
