Mebane (biceps) expects to be ready for the start of offseason workouts in April, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports. Mebane went down in Week 10 with a torn biceps, an affliction that typically accompanies a three-month recovery timetable. Considering he'll be roughly four months removed from the injury when offseason workouts start up in April, Mebane's optimism for his impending availability is certainly warranted.
Mebane was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Mebane suffered a torn bicep in Week 10's loss to the Dolphins. It was expected all along that the defensive tackle's season was over, but the team waited till returning from their bye week to officially make the move. At 31, the veteran proved he still has something left in the tank as he registered 21 tackles, one sack and one interception in 10 games. Damion Square is expected to take over as starter for the remainder of the season.
Mebane suffered a torn biceps during Sunday's loss to the Dolphins and will be out for the season, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. Mebane joined the Chargers this offseason after spending the last six season with the Seahawks. A terrific run-stopper in the Chargers' 3-4 defense, Mebane managed to record 21 tackles, a sack and an interception in 10 games. With the injury, Damion Square and Darius Philon will likely be asked to fill in the rest of the way.
Mebane has signed with the Chargers, the Seattle Times reports. Per the report, Mebane's three-year deal with the Chargers is worth up to $13.5 million. The veteran nose tackle -- who recorded 24 tackles and 1.5 sacks for Seattle in 15 games last season -- isn't much of an IDP factor, but he'll provide a welcome boost to the Chargers' defense in terms of his ability as a run-stuffer.
Seahawks general manager John Schneider said Thursday that nose tackle Brandon Mebane is "doing well" in his recovery from a torn hamstring, the Tacoma News Tribune reports. Schneider added that Mebane is on track to be ready for the beginning of the 2015 season. The nose tackle said in late January that the surgery to repair the torn hamstring went well and that he anticipated being back to 100 percent by April.
