COSTA MESA – The Chargers are back from their bye week and have shifted preparations toward the Falcons who they’ll square off against on Sunday in Atlanta.

Kicker Dustin Hopkins and outside linebacker Chris Rumph are “trending well” Staley said ahead of practice, but were listed as non-participants.
Wide receiver Keenan Allen said Wednesday that he suffered a setback to his hamstring during the bye week and is unsure how long it will be until making his return.
In total, the Chargers had five players held out of practice on Wednesday and seven listed on the injury report.
Meanwhile, the Falcons had three players on the injury report, including two that were held out of practice, featuring cornerback A.J Terrell and guard Elijah Wilkinson.
