Week 3 of the National Football League preseason is generally considered the “dress rehearsal” for the regular season, but according to an Oregon Live report, the Los Angeles Chargers will not be treating it that way. Coach Anthony Lynn, according to the report, is planning to keep not only veteran quarterback Philip Rivers on the bench, and he plans to rest all of his starters. But Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll is taking the opposite approach, planning to get “everybody” in the game — but he would not reveal when or how long the starters, including quarterback Russell Wilson, will play in the game that will stream live from the Los Angeles suburbs.

The Chargers will again be without running back Melvin Gordon, who continues to hold out as he demands a new contract from the team. The 2015 first-round draft pick who topped 1,100 yards rushing in 2017 but dropped to 885 last season, wants to be paid at the same level as his Los Angeles counterpart Todd Gurley of the Rams, who inked $14.4 million, four-year deal, according to Newsweek.
The Chargers defeated Seattle when they met in Week 9 of last season, 25-17, per Pro Football Reference.
