The man who leads the Chargers in interceptions after five games is 6-foot-4 and 330 pounds.

His jersey number is 92.

He has dropped into coverage once all season a not-so-fluid zone back-peddle last week against the Raiders.

Cam Thomas “made his play” cornerback Richard Marshall said. “We've got to make our play when the time comes.”

Thomas the starting nose tackle is the only Charger to intercept a pass this year an unlikely distinction the defense — its secondary in particular— looks to end Monday against the Colts. Thomas caught a pass last month that linebacker Jarret Johnson tipped on the first defensive play of the season.
