Telesco has admitted that the club are looking at the long-term picture when now selecting players.
He told reporters: "All the work he does throughout the year is extremely important. Football is a physical game, and guys get hurt at our level just like they get hurt in college.
"As we make decisions on players, we have to project how long do we think they'll be able to play. So if a guy has an injury that may shorten his career, that's something we have to know."
The Chargers hold the 25th pick in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
