Quick Take: Vikings' starters struggle vs. Chargers

Around the League editor Gregg Rosenthal has his takeaways from the game:

From Around the League:
» Lessons from Friday's preseason games

» With three starting offensive linemen injured, the Chargers rested quarterback Philip Rivers and tight end Antonio Gates, among other starters. There wasn't much to draw from their offense on this one.

» Impressive Chargers rookie Melvin Ingram left the game with a thigh injury. He was seen on the bench with his leg wrapped. The injury didn't look too serious.

» Christian Ponder and Minnesota's first-team offense really struggled. The three points it scored came on a short field. The Vikings had four three-and-outs and turned the ball over twice.
