Liuget is feeling "much better" after he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in December, Micahel Gehlken of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Liuget had tallied 34 tackles (28 solo) and three sacks before his Week 13 injury against the Broncos. The 26-year-old, who signed a five-year extension prior to last year's training camp, reportedly weighed between 313-315 pounds throughout the 2015 season, but is expecting to cut his weight down to 295 by the season opener. With the Chargers selecting Joey Bosa with the third overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Liuget and Bosa could form an impressive duo on the defensive line capable of wreaking havoc on opposing offenses should both players stay healthy.
Liuget (foot) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, ESPN's Eric Williams reports. Liuget recorded 34 tackles (28 solo) and 3 sacks before injuring his foot in a Week 13 contest against the Broncos -- an injury that will end his season. The team activated defensive lineman Darius Philon (hip) from the injured reserve/designated to return list to replace Liuget.
Liuget (foot) is active for Sunday's game at Jacksonville. Liuget had five tackles and a sack in a losing effort in Week 11 and is available if you need him as an IDP.
Liuget (foot) is active Sunday against the Chiefs. Liuget (foot) will be ready to go after putting in three limited practices this week. Before leaving the Week 8 game with his injury, he had posted two sacks in his previous three games. He'll look to pick up where he left off before the injury against the Chiefs.
Liuget (foot) is expected to play Sunday against the Chiefs, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Liuget's presence along the defensive line is certainly a plus for the Chargers, though with only 28 tackles and two sacks this season, he's a minimal fantasy IDP option.
