Los Angeles Chargers first-round pick Derwin James said he felt “100 percent” during his first training camp practice on Thursday after being activated off the non-football injury list.
James, who turns 22 Friday, told reporters that he injured his hamstring a week before camp opened while training on his own. The safety missed four days of practices before making his camp debut.
“Feels great to be back out here playing football,” James said. “I feel like I was ready Monday, but it’s an ongoing process. You never know with those soft-tissue injuries. I know (the team) got my back, they only want what’s best for me.”
