Chargers preparing to face Seahawks twice in month

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Chargers are preparing to play the Seattle Seahawks on Friday night. Then, they’ll do it again a month later.

The Chargers returned to practice on Monday after being off on Sunday. Cornerbacks Brandon Flowers (knee) and Jason Verrett (shoulder) continued to increase their workloads following offseason surgeries.

After the Chargers beat the Dallas Cowboys in Thursday’s preseason opener, the focus has shifted to visiting the defending NFL-champion Seahawks. Seattle travels to San Diego on Sept. 14, and quarterback Philip Rivers said facing Seattle twice in a month almost gives the matchup a divisional feel because of the familiarity.

Linebacker Donald Butler said the test comes later in stopping Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch.
