Chargers DST faces tall task


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Dwight Freeney returns to practice after leg issue


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

"I know I remember when I was a rookie," Freeney said, "I just went 130 percent no matter what, and every play is game day. And maybe in the game that would have been OK, but here I can't hit (quarterback) Philip (Rivers) ... so it's kind of funny. I was laughing, actually, on the way down because I already knew what was going to happen. I was like, 'I've got a young guy here; he's probably going to clean me up.' He cleaned me up."
