Alecxih ended the 2016 season on injured reserve. Alecxih had surgery to repair significant damage to his left knee in August, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports. Alecxih has been in training camp with several teams over the course of the past five years but has never managed to make a regular season roster. He'll be hoping to finally catch on with the Panthers as a depth lineman and special teams player in 2017.
Alecxih has suffered an unspecified knee injury, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports. The severity of the injury is undisclosed, but head coach Ron Rivera noted that "it does not look good". Alecxih was reportedly having a strong camp prior to going down, but would have needed an excellent preseason showing to make the Panthers' final roster behind a stacked defensive line sporting the likes of DTs Star Lotulelei, Kawann Short, Paul Soliai and Vernon Butler.
The Chargers have signed guard Michael Huey of the Arena Football League, according to the UT San Diego. The team also waived offensive lineman Jeff Baca and defensive lineman Chas Alecxih. Huey is a three-time All-AFL member, playing for the Arizona Rattlers. He spent three weeks with the Chargers during the 2011 preseason. The Rattlers won the league championship in each year that Huey was there. Baca, 25, was brought in as insurance as an interior offensive lineman last season after the Chargers went through five starting centers. Alecxih, twice a member of the team's practice squad, did not see any regular season action in 2014.
The Chargers released defensive tackle Chas Alecxih from their practice squad and re-signed defensive back Adrian Phillips to the squad, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune.
