AFC Notes: Chargers, Chiefs, Raiders


Chargers OLB Uchenna Nwosu said new addition OLB Kyler Fackrell is going to be a huge piece of the defense.

“He’s been in the league for six years, so he’s played a lot of ball,” Nwosu said, via Chargers Wire. “He has a lot of wisdom and intelligence behind him. We know that if anything ever goes wrong, we can always count on him.


New Chiefs OG Joe Thuney has been impressed with the offensive line’s work ethic in practice. 

“The locker room is a really hard-working group,” Thuney said, via Chiefs Wire. “I think everyone just wants to try to take steps and make progress, myself included. It’s been great being out on the field with those guys and looking forward to some more of it.”

Thuney also praised fellow new OL Orlando Brown Jr. along with the entire Chiefs organization.

“Everyone’s been great,” Thuney said. “The organization is top class, everyone’s been so welcoming, I feel great here, really happy to be here. In regards to Orlando, he’s a great guy. We’ve been working together for a little bit of time now, and it’s going well. Just taking it day by day, but he’s a great guy and a really great player and got to take it a day at a time.”


Raiders’ DL Solomon Thomas says he misses football after spending last season on the sideline due to a season-ending injury.

“I missed football,” Thomas said, via Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Last season, I had to spend the whole season on a couch. I had fun watching, but I missed the game. So now just being able to come to practice and be in the locker room gives me energy. It’s been a long journey. It was a mental struggle for sure. Anytime I looked too far forward, I would get stressed, I would get frustrated. But I had a great treatment team, and when I could take it day by day and just put in the work, we got better and better every day and we’re ahead of the curve.”
