Healthy scratch once again

Stick (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Analysis: Stick has yet to be active for a game this season while operating as the No. 3 quarterback behind Justin Herbert and Chase Daniel. The 2019 fifth-round pick has only appeared in one NFL contest in his career, competing his only pass for four yards across two offensive snaps while playing for the Chargers during the 2020 campaign.

Starting against Niners

Stick will start Sunday's preseason game against the 49ers, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

Analysis: The Chargers have only three quarterbacks on their roster, including one (Justin Herbert) who will be held out for the entire preseason despite being healthy. Chase Daniel is the favorite for the backup job and got the start in the first preseason game, completing 15 of 24 passes for 104 yards in the first half of a 13-6 win over the Rams. Stick then completed seven of seven passes for 63 yards in the second half, with the Chargers getting only four drives and 21 plays after the break. He should have more pass attempts Sunday, even if it's a 50/50 split in terms of quarters/halves.

Second in line Saturday

Stick will see the field after Chase Daniel starts Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

Analysis: Stick has only appeared in one regular-season contest since joining the Chargers as a fifth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Daniel looks like the favorite to serve as the backup to top quarterback Justin Herbert this season, in which case Stick could be set for another season handling the No. 3 role.

Riding pine Week 12

Stick (coach's decision) is inactive for the Chargers' Week 12 road trip to Buffalo.

Analysis: Stick was demoted to the No. 3 quarterback role once Tyrod Taylor returned to the team Week 9 from a ribs/chest injury. The 2019 fifth-round draft choice from North Dakota State had made one game appearance in the NFL, completing his lone pass attempt for a four-yard gain Week 7 against the Jaguars.

Backup duties on tap

Stick will back up Justin Herbert in Sunday's game versus the Panthers, Lorenzo Reyes of USA Today reports.

Analysis: Tyrod Taylor is expected to miss Week 4 against the Buccaneers as well after he suffered a punctured lung from a misplaced injection in Week 2. Therefore, Stick will likely serve as the backup to Herbert for the next two games and possibly beyond if Taylor remains out. Stick had a solid collegiate career, throwing for 2,752 yards, 28 touchdowns and seven interceptions in his senior season at North Dakota State, but he hasn't played a regular-season snap since being selected in by the Chargers in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Ready to compete in 2020?

Stick and Tyrod Taylor are the only quarterbacks under contract with the Chargers for 2020, Alex Barth of 98.5 The Sports Hub reports.

Analysis: With Philip Rivers rumored to be headed for a new team, it isn't out of the question for Stick to be part of a position battle during training camp. Of course, the 24-year-old likely would be the underdog in a 1v1 competition with Taylor, and there's also a pretty good chance the Chargers use significant cap space or an early draft pick on a quarterback. The 2019 fifth-round pick was a healthy scratch throughout his rookie season, serving as the No. 3 QB behind Rivers and Taylor.

Confirmed third-string

Stick (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against Detroit.

Analysis: Stick was facing an uphill battle out of training camp, listed third on the depth chart behind Philip Rivers and Tyrod Taylor, and this news confirms that notion. The North Dakota State product will hope to get the call for Week 3 when the Chargers take on the Texans.

Scores pair of touchdowns

Stick completed 12 of 16 pass attempts for 82 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions while also rushing three times for 14 yards and another score in the Chargers' 23-15 preseason loss to the Seahawks on Saturday.

Analysis: The rookie fifth-round pick may have sewn up a roster spot with his performance, which saw him lead 11- and eight-play touchdown drives in the fourth quarter. Stick connected on an eight-yard scoring toss to Andrew Patton to cap off the first successful series, and he logged a four-yard touchdown rush to finish off the latter march. Stick clearly outperformed competitor Cardale Jones (4-for-5, 50 yards) on Saturday, although both signal-callers figure to see plenty of action in next Thursday's preseason finale against the 49ers.
