Brandon Taylor had his first opportunity to work with the Chargers starters Sunday.
He called it a "good learning experience."
The third-round pick from LSU replaced strong safety Atari Bigby toward the early stages of Friday's practice. Bigby left with what Turner called "tightness" in a leg muscle.
Chargers tight end Antonio Gates ended Taylor's day with a touchdown catch on a sharp corner route.
"It's good going against the best," Taylor said. "You know you can get better."
Bigby was among the notable to either be limited or sidelined Friday afternoon.
Outside linebacker Larry Englsh missed with a hamstring strain, and wide receiver Eddie Royal and undrafted wide receiver Mike Willie were among the others not to work.
Roscoe Parrish and Micheal Spurlock each saw first-team reps out of the slot.
Turner didn't go into detail about the injuries.
"Some guys have some slight muscle issues," he said, "and if they can't practice, they can't practice."
Back in pads
The Chargers will hold their first padded practice Saturday from 3:45 to 6 p.m.
It's also the first practice open to the general public.
Gates open at 3 p.m. at Chargers Park. Admission is free.
"I'm really looking forward to (it)," Turner said. "It's the next step for this group. ... With the large number of free agents, with the rookies, this is our first opportunity to watch them in pads."
Nice knowing ya Larry
Yeah. At least Clary will get on the field...
