The Chargers have played in 11 games this season. Of those 11, nine have had a season-ending injury.
Wide receiver Keenan Allen (ACL, after Week 1), running back Danny Woodhead (ACL, Week 2), inside linebacker Manti Te’o (Achilles, Week 3), corner Jason Verrett (ACL, Week 4), inside linebacker Nick Dzubnar (ACL, Week 5), defensive end Caraun Reid (ACL, Week 7), running back Dexter McCluster (forearm, Week 8), nose tackle Brandon Mebane (biceps, Week 10) and now a linebacker in Jerry Attaochu.
He was the Chargers’ 2nd round pick in 2014. He broke his foot Sunday in the 4th quarter; it was caught on the turf, sources said.
It’s a blow to the depth at the linebacker position and it’s a blow to him. He’s young talent and need the reps to improve his game.
He had already missed 3 games this season due to a high ankle sprain and now he’ll miss the last 5.
