By 1 p.m. PT this Saturday, the dream of playing professional football for the Bolts will end for 22 players when last remaining cuts are announced.
In the next two days, we can expect head coach Mike McCoy to pick the best 53 for his roster and begin turning his team's focus to the season opener on Sept. 8 against the Cardinals.
When asked about the reduction process following Thursday's game, McCoy told Ricky Henne of Chargers.com:
We have some tough decisions to make. After watching the game from the sideline, you can tell some guys stepped up and helped themselves out. But as an organization we’ll meet in the next few days and find the best 53 guys and move it forward. Then find a few guys to help us on the practice squad. But I’m proud of the way the guys worked.
Here's how the roster should break down by Saturday.
