Chargers' Whitehurst injures knee

The SportsXchange

The Chargers are considering adding another quarterback after Charlie Whitehurst suffered a knee injury in the team's first training camp practice.

Whitehurst signed a two-year, $3.05 million contract with the Chargers in March. He replaced veteran Billy Volek, who remains a free agent and is one of the options Chargers general manager A.J. Smith is likely to consider.

Whitehurst and the Chargers didn't disclose the exact nature of the injury but Whitehurst did say "it's not bad."

Starting quarterback Philip Rivers has started 96 consecutive games -- all 16 games in his six seasons as the Chargers' No. 1 quarterback.
