After last week's pummeling at the hands of the reigning Super Bowl champs, the San Diego Chargers are back in action this Sunday against a struggling San Francisco 49ers team.

Through two preseason games, the 49ers have been outscored 57-3, with a most recent outing against the Denver Broncos ending in a 34-0 drubbing at the new stomping grounds of Colin Kaepernick and Co.

Speaking of Levi's Stadium, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reported on Wednesday that field conditions at the $1.3 billion stadium had become hazardous to players, forcing head coach Jim Harbaugh to move the session east of the stadium to the team's practice field.

The grounds crew has been hard at work laying new sod at the stadium, and Chargers head coach Mike McCoy was assured by 49ers team officials that the field would be ready for Sunday's game. 

According to Eric D. Williams of ESPN, San Diego is expected to play its starters into the third quarter on Sunday. With this being the third week of preseason games, teams across the league are expected to get more out of their first-team units as the start of the regular season approaches.

Sunday's batch of games will also be the last before the first wave of roster cuts. On Aug. 26, all rosters are mandated to cut down from 90 to 75. For a number of players striving to make the final cut, Sunday's game will play a vital part in the trimming process.
