Chargers’ Danario Alexander To Miss 2013 Season
By Allen Kim
The NFL has been hit with a rash of season-ending injuries this offseason, and the biggest culprit has been ACL tears. San Diego Chargers WR Danario Alexander is the latest victim to go down with the injury, and he probably won’t be the last before the season is officially underway.
Alexander is certainly no stranger to the injury, having torn his left ACL three times while at Missouri. However, this time the injury is on his right side, and he should seriously be concerned about his health and career at this point.
This is certainly sad news, and you have to feel for Alexander after he put so much preparation into getting his body ready and healthy for the upcoming year.
After spending his first two seasons in the league with the St. Louis Rams, Alexander joined the Chargers partially through the year last season. He broke out with 658 receiving and seven touchdowns in 10 games for San Diego, and the team was hoping he would play a major role on the team’s receiving corps opposite Malcom Floyd.
The Chargers will now be forced to rely on a mix of Vincent Brown, Robert Meachem and Keenan Allen behind Floyd.
