Chargers are hindering WR Quentin Johnston's developmentStory by Alex Insdorf
The numbers for the Chargers’ 2023 first-round pick Quentin Johnston are not nearly as pretty as some of his draft-class contemporaries. He has 44 yards on six receptions for the season. Against the Cowboys, Johnston had just one official target on Los Angeles’ final drive. That resulted in an interception and Johnston getting pushed over on a debatable pass interference call, but the refs tend to let players play in end-game situations.
