The Chargers have already lost Hunter Henry to a season ending torn ACL. On the first day of training camp Youth Isaac Rochell Jersey
, they have now lost another TE, Rookie Austin Roberts.Austin is the son of Chargers Runningbacks coach Alfredo Roberts. He came in for a workout earlier in the offseason and earned a spot on the 90 man roster. He went down in practice on day one and had trainers around him while he was down on the ground for a few minutes, then we saw him get up and walk over to the medical tent under his own power, I didn’t even notice a limp. Just like Forrest Lamp last year Color Rush Kyzir White Jersey
, it turned out to be worse than it looked, and he is done for the year.Fortunately for the Chargers, Roberts was a long shot to make the roster in the first place. The team seems to really like Sean Culkin and Braeden Bowman behind Virgil Green. Hopefully that is the first, and last major injury of camp.Injury Update: Dylan Cantrell has a bone bruise We now finally have a diagnosis for what has Dylan Cantrell sidelined right now. That is a painful injury. Last summer I partially tore my ACL and wound up with some severe bone bruising as well. It is very painful and takes a long time to heal. Whats worse Color Rush Philip Rivers Jersey
, is that the only way to let it heal quickly is to just stay off of it, which means after the bone bruise is healed, he’ll need time to get back in shape. He is lucky though that there wasn’t an accompanying torn ligament of any kind. Given the length of time he might be out, there is a concern he may have to go on the IR. Cantrell was just starting to put things together and look good in camp. It’s unfortunate for the Chargers to have lost him Youth Austin Ekeler Jersey
, for now, but the team dodged a bullet with it just being a bone bruise, and depending on how this is handled he should be available later in the year.
