  • San Diego Injuries

    06/15/16RBDanny WoodheadAnkle Woodhead suffered an ankle injury during Wednesday's minicamp, per ESPN.com reports.

    During team drills, Woodhead appeared to get tangled up with an offensive lineman and fall to the ground with a left ankle injury. Fortunately, Woodhead was subsequently observed walking off the field on his own strength. The injury isn't expected to be serious, but he should be considered questionable for San Diego's final day of minicamp. Woodhead's status for training camp doesn't appear to be in any jeopardy, though.

    05/17/16RBMelvin GordonKneePROBABLEGordon (knee) participated in team drills during minicamp, but isn't expected back at full strength until training camp, The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Recovering from January knee surgery, Gordon was observed taking handoffs and catching passes during San Diego's first day of minicamp. This increased level of activity suggests the running back's recovery is progressing well, and barring any setbacks, he should indeed be ready to go for training camp.

    04/27/16DBBrandon FlowersKneePROBABLEFlowers (knee) is healthy after ending the season on IR, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Flowers failed to record a single interception last season, the first time he hasn't recorded at least one takeaway in his six-year career. Couple that with the fact that he registered just 33 tackles (29 solo), and it's fair to say Flowers is coming off his worst season as a pro. However, following an offseason in which the 30-year-old corner reportedly trimmed 10-12 pounds off his frame and appears completely healthy following a nagging knee injury that caused him to miss the final four games of the regular season, Flowers looks to be on the upswing heading into the new year. Even with Casey Hayward joining the secondary via free agency, Flowers is still expected to start opposite Jason Verrett and could be a good candidate to rebound should he stay healthy.

    04/27/16DLCorey LiugetFootPROBABLELiuget 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.

    04/08/16DBJason VerrettHamstring Verrett (hamstring) has begun working out with fellow Chargers teammates, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

    Verrett, who missed the Chargers final game of the regular season due to a hamstring injury, was spotted working out with a few members of the secondary at a training facility in California. San Diego's leader in interceptions last year, Verrett is expected to take over more of a leadership role on defense with veteran captain Eric Weddle widely expected to sign with another team during the offseason.

    01/04/16WRSteve JohnsonGroin After missing the final four games of the regular season, Johnson finished 2015 with 45 catches for 497 yards and three touchdowns in ten games.

    Johnson missed a total of six games because a hamstring injury caused him to miss Weeks 5 and 6 in addition to missing the last four games of the year due to a groin injury. When he was healthy, he was a productive slot receiver who would typically make four or five catches per game on a good passing team. Johnson should be back for more of the same in 2016.

    05/17/16RBArian FosterAchillesQUESTIONABLEFoster (Achilles) is expected to be healthy for training camp, should he sign with a team, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    Foster was released by Houston, his home for the past seven seasons, earlier in the offseason after another disappointing year plagued by injuries. Currently unemployed, he continues to rehab from a torn Achilles in the hopes of finding his way onto a roster. Reports say the four-time Pro Bowler will be hungry and healthy for training camp should any team bring him on.
