Chargers defensive end Chris McCain discussed his reasons for kneeling during the national anthem before Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. McCain said that kneeling for the anthem is not a sign of disrespect, but simply showing support for other NFL players protesting against social injustice: "I feel that now we understand as a community our own Commander and Chief, a guy that we're supposed to lean on and be here to protect us, but clearly he is not. He's not on our side."

Kareem Hunt continues to rack up massive numbers in Andy Reid's offense. Hunt rushed for 172 yards today versus the Chargers (on 17 carries) and ripped off a 69 yard score on a cutback run. Legit talent.

Melvin Gordon back on the sideline after getting checked out in the locker room. Looks like he might play.

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon has a knee injury and is questionable to return. Gordon missed practice on Thursday due to soreness in his knee.

Chargers are lucky rookie safety Rayshawn Jenkins' personal foul penalty for knocking down Kansas City kicker Cairo Santos cost them just a field goal. Chargers have turned it over three times but because of the play of the defense, only trail by seven after a Younghoe Koo 29-yard field goal to end the half.

Flagrant face mask on Branden Oliver that I clearly saw from the press box. How do seven NFL officials on the field miss that?

Not sure you want an outside linebacker like Nigel Harris trailing a speedy WR like Tyreek Hill in coverage on that 30-yard TD from Alex Smith. Where was the safety help over the top?

The Chargers locking arms during the national anthem. Melvin Ingram took a knee. Chris McCain, Darius Philon, Brandon Mebane, Damion Square and Tenny Palepoi sat down.
