COSTA MESA Chuma Edoga Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Derwin James was one of the nation’s top defensive players the past three seasons at Florida State. He is quickly establishing the same reputation in his rookie season in the NFL.The Chargers safety leads Los Angeles in tackles (30) and sacks (3.0) going into Sunday’s game against Oakland. James, who was the 17th overall pick in this year’s draft, is also the first defensive back since the Jets’ Kerry Rhodes in 2006 to have three or more sacks and an interception in the first four games of a season.“I feel like I’m right where I need to be at,” James said. “I’m doing good in coverage but there are other small things that I can still get fixed.”James was considered one of the most versatile defensive players in college because of his coverage skills and ability to rush the quarterback. Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley is putting those skills to good use.The 6-foot-2, 215-pound James leads NFL rookie defensive backs in sacks, passes defensed (six) and quarterback pressures (seven). James has mostly lined up at free safety, but he has also played at slot corner and linebacker.James played mostly safety in Week 1 against the Chiefs and two weeks later against the Rams. In the other two games, against the Bills and 49ers, whose offenses aren’t as dynamic, he was used at linebacker and safety.Another factor in James’ strong start has been his confidence. He admitted he didn’t feel that at times as he was still working his way back from an injury to his left knee that occurred in Florida State’s second game in 2016 and kept him out the rest of that season.“I was 100 percent once I came back but the flow and speed of the game is faster,” he said. “You may feel 100 percent but then it was getting over the fact in my mind that the knee was fine and not babying it.”Where Bradley lines up James this week will be one of the more interesting matchups. The Raiders are second in the league in total offense, averaging 441.8 yards per game Trevon Wesco Jersey , and fourth in passing (333 yards per game).Oakland, which got its first win last Sunday against Cleveland in overtime, has had a 100-yard receiver in each game this season and is one of only three teams to do that. The Chargers are 2-2 after beating San Francisco last week.Raiders coach Jon Gruden said they scouted James extensively before the draft, but after drafting a safety in high rounds in 2016 and ’17, it was difficult to justify taking another one.During a conference call Wednesday, Gruden compared James to Rodney Harrison and Hall of Fame defensive back Ronnie Lott.“He’s an intimidating player,” Gruden said. “He has the physical presence, the range to play deep, coverage ability and he can run through you, around you and over you. He’s good in any generation. He can play in high top cleats and leather helmets.”Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has also lauded James for having the demeanor of a player who has been in the league for a long time.“I know what type of player I am. I didn’t get to show it a lot in college a lot because coaches would scheme and not come my way. I know what I can do,” James said.Notes: Coach Anthony Lynn said left tackle Russell Okung is likely to be a game-time decision after he strained his groin during the first half of Sunday’s game against San Francisco. If Okung is unable to play, Sam Tevi will move to left tackle and Trent Scott will be at right tackle. … Lynn said the decision to release punter Drew Kaser and sign Donnie Jones had to do with chemistry issues on extra points and field goals Shareef Miller Jersey , where Kaser was the holder for kicker Caleb Sturgis, who has missed three extra points. “Drew is an outstanding punter. It was a hard cut, but you look at the big picture. Just wanting to change the whole direction right there with the holder and the kicker and make an extra point.” INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Adam Vinatieri’s record-breaking quest could be temporarily on hold.The seemingly ageless kicker re-injured his right groin during the Indianapolis Colts‘ victory over Buffalo on Sunday, underwent an MRI on Monday and coach Frank Reich acknowledged he might miss next weekend’s game at Oakland.Vinatieri first appeared on the injury report in Week 5 before facing his former team, New England. The 43-year-old looked fine in the game, making a 54-yard field goal and finishing with six points to move within 20 of breaking Morten Andersen’s league scoring record of 2,544 points.The Colts kicker added three more field goals in Week 6 against the New York Jets and another against the Bills — though he also missed two extra points in a game for the first time in his 23-year career. He needs five points to move past Andersen.“We just know he felt a little something on the first PAT, so we are just going to see how the week progresses,” Reich said on a conference call. “We’re going to bring in some kickers, just so you guys know, but we are not going to make any decisions until later.”Vinatieri has been a model of consistency throughout his career.His legacy as the best clutch kicker in history began with two kicks in the “Snow Bowl”, one to force overtime and one to beat Oakland in overtime. That victory helped lead New England to its second Super Bowl appearance.Two weeks later Zach Brown Jersey , he made the winning kick in the final minute to give the Patriots their first championship since the AFL-NFL merger. He made another last-minute, Super Bowl-winning kick two years later to give the Patriots the second of their five Lombardi Trophies.The story continued after he signed with Indianapolis before the 2006 season. Vinatieri made five field goals in a divisional-round matchup at Baltimore, a game in which no touchdowns were scored, to help send the Colts on their first title run since moving to Indianapolis.Vinatieri has four championship rings, is a three-time All-Pro selection and last month broke Andersen’s record for field goals. Andersen finished with 565. Vinatieri has 571.And Vinatieri has achieved all those feats largely because of his uncanny ability to stay healthy.He’s missed only 15 games during his career, 10 coming in 2009 when he finished the season on injured reserve.This injury even caught Reich by surprise.“I thought he was just like a robot,” Reich said. “He’s a machine. But the good thing is he has that mental toughness, that mindset to do what he has done in his career. You know he has the right mindset to get past this — whatever course it should take.”Now, though, Reich & Co. must figure out their next move.Reich doesn’t anticipate Indy (2-5) signing Vinatieri’s potential replacement immediately and instead will rely on trainers to closely monitor Vinatieri’s health, consulting Vinatieri before making a decision.Keeping him out this week could work to Vinatieri’s advantage, too.The Colts have a bye following the Raiders game Devin Bush Jersey , giving Vinatieri two weeks to heal, then play three straight games in the climate-controlled confines of Lucas Oil Stadium.Sitting out a week also could help Vinatieri achieve his stated preference of breaking Andersen’s record on his home turf — even if this wasn’t how he planned it.“Ultimately when you’ve got a guy like Adam, who’s just so unique, we are going to listen to him,” Reich said. “We are going to listen to the trainers and that will be what will inform our decision.”NOTES: Reich provided no updates on tight end Erik Swoope, who did not return after hurting his knee Sunday, or defensive lineman Jihad Ward, who was carted off the field after appearing to injure his right ankle. … Reich also could not say whether Pro Bowl tight end Jack Doyle (hip) could return this week. Doyle has missed six straight games.
