The initial practice squad includes:
- WR Michael Bandy

- OLB Emeke Egbule
- DL Breiden Fehoko

Facyson, 26, wound up going undrafted out of Virginia Tech back in 2018. He later signed a three-year contract with the Chargers and managed to make the 53-man roster each of his first three years in the NFL.
The Chargers declined to tender Facyson a restricted offer this offseason, making him an unrestricted free agent. However he ultimately re-signed with Los Angeles.
In 2020, Brandon Facyson appeared in 13 games for the Chargers and recorded 14 tackles and a forced fumble.
