Former Georgia lineman Jamaree Salyer receives game ball from Chargers
Los Angeles Chargers rookie OL Jamaree Salyer had himself a game Sunday.
The 6th-round draft pick out of Georgia received his first NFL start on Sunday against the Houston Texans. Salyer was thrust into the starting lineup after the Chargers lost their star LT Rashawn Slater for the season.
Salyer was needed in a big way, and he delivered. Salyer did not allow a sack and the team accumulated 414 yards of offense. The Chargers knocked off the Houston Texans, 34-24, and the rookie lineman was awarded with a game ball.

Salyer was a multi-year starter for Kirby Smart on the Georgia offensive line. He projected to be a guard in the NFL, because of his less-than-ideal height. Nonetheless, Salyer got the nod over fellow OT Storm Norton, and he made the most of it.
With more playing time available for the former Georgia star, Salyer should have plenty of additional opportunities to impress his team.
