Teams across the NFL are preparing to ramp up for the 2022 regular season with the start of training camp. The Los Angeles Chargers were one of the first squads to take the field as the preseason nears.

Here's everything Chargers fans need to know about training camp this year.

When Does Los Angeles Chargers Training Camp Start?

Each team has two separate start dates for training camp, as rookies are often required to report a few days before veterans. The Chargers had one of the earlier starts of teams across the league, with rookies having reported on Tuesday, July 19.

Then, on Tuesday, July 26, Los Angeles' veterans are mandated to report for training camp. This gives just two weeks to prepare for the team's first preseason game on Aug. 13.

Chargers Training Camp Dates 2022

Chargers rookies reported for training camp on July 19, followed by vets on July 26. Cincinnati will then host practices to get ready for its first preseason game on Aug. 13.

The Chargers' first preseason game is at home against the Los Angeles Rams. The Chargers also play again on Aug. 20 (vs. Dallas Cowboys) and Aug. 27 (@ New Orleans Saints).

The Chargers will suit up on Sunday, Sept. 11 versus the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 1 of the 2022 campaign.

Chargers Training Camp News

All-Pro safety Derwin James is searching for a long-term contract with the Chargers, leaving fans wondering if he could end up holding out of camp. The good news for the organization's fanbase is that it appears there's no need to worry.

James told ESPN this week that he'll "definitely" be attending training camp. He added that he's letting his agent handle the contract situation while the 25-year-old focuses on football.

While the Chargers have worked hard to improve their defense this offseason, there'd be no replacing James if he decided to miss time. The two-time Pro-Bowler is easily a top-five player at his position, proven last year when he recorded 118 tackles, five defended passes, three forced fumbles and a pair of interceptions.
