Bolts Looking at Possible Backup QB’s After Whitehurst Goes Down

Chargers backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst injured his left knee in the Chargers first practice, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Whitehurst was able to walk off the practice field on his own power.

“I’ll be all right,” he said in the locker room. “It’s not bad.

Whitehurst would downplay his injury afterward, but there was enough concern that the Chargers began making calls around the league, sending feelers to potential replacements, sources said.

Billy Volek naturally jumps out as possible candidate. He spent the past five years as a San Diego backup and remains a free agent after his March release.
