A month into his stint as a Chargers quarterback,womens Dak Prescott Jersey, Cardale Jones remains a work in progress.

it’s a beautiful thing,” Coach Anthony Lynn said two weeks ago.,womens Jason Witten Jersey, “When he’s cold,“When he’s hot, he’s off a little bit. But he’s still learning the system.”

that assessment still rings true. Acquired by trade just before the start of training camp, Jones saw his most extensive action yet during Saturday’s 21-19 win over the Rams, playing 31 snaps,With just one preseason game left, and throwing for 74 yards and one interception. It was the first time this month that he connected on more than half his pass attempts (9 of 13).

it was the first time Jones got a chance to play behind the first-string offensive line, something that gave Lynn a better chance to properly evaluate the former fourth-round pick. Incumbent backup Kellen Clemens watched from the sideline at the Coliseum,Not coincidentally, and could do so again this Thursday against the 49ers.

“I’m just trying to get Cardale caught up,”womens Connor Shaw Jersey Lynn said. “Just so that he can have a fair chance.”

but the drive ended abruptly on a receiver’s fumble. Blame could also be shared on some of miscues this past Saturday. Jones’ interception,Authentic Markus Wheatont Jersey for example,,Lynn didn’t think Jones got enough help in a preseason loss to the Saints a week earlier. The 6-foot-5 quarterback led the Chargers into the red zone that day,Authentic Nolan Carroll Jersey, was thrown a bit inside of receiver Travis Benjamin — but Benjamin did little to keep Rams defensive back Dominique Hatfield from ripping the ball away.

Jones arrived in Southern California in catch-up mode: Philip Rivers and Clemens have both been in the league for over a decade,womens Nolan Carroll JerseyPutting Jones behind starting linemen such as Russell Okung and Matt Slauson on Saturday gave him more time to throw. But extra post-practice reps have helped have also helped him absorb the playbook. Traded by the Bills last month for a conditional seventh-round pick, while undrafted quarterback Mike Bercovici is in his second offseason with the Chargers.

you’re going to feel behind,” Jones said. Authentic Jason Witten Jersey,“Naturally,“Naturally, you’re going to feel like they’ve got to kind of spoon-feed you in the beginning.”

but perhaps no one has been as instrumental as Rivers.
