San Diego Fanfest spectators wondered why speedy newcomer Travis Benjamin sat out all drills, and why Keenan Allen, the No. 1 receiver, sat on the bench with a shoe off as trainer James Collins checked on both players.
HC Mike McCoy said Allen was limited to solo drills, due to having his foot stepped on Friday. “He’s fine,” the coach said.
McCoy didn’t specify Benjamin’s situation but said generally that he’ll rest players on certain days.
So once again, it was Tyrell Williams getting to take advantage. Williams had a 28-yard catch which QB Philip Rivers described as the top highlight for the first team offense. Williams is having a good camp and could be in line for more playing time with Stevie Johnson's injury. The story said Williams is of the Michael Floyd mold.
