Danario Alexander could miss 2014 with knee problems
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chargers receiver Danario Alexander continues to have problems with his surgically-repaired knee, reports FOX Sports.

The report says Alexander has required "multiple" surgeries on his right knee because of infection after undergoing a second reconstruction of his ACL in January. As a result, Alexander might not be able to play in 2014. He is an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Alexander had the first ACL surgery in August and suffered complications, which caused a second surgery in January. He then had an infection that forced Alexander to receive intensive antibiotic treatment as well as the subsequent surgeries.

Alexander, 25, already had undergone five surgeries on his left knee dating back to before he entered the NFL in 2010.

Danario Alexander had a second knee surgery in January
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Receiver Danario Alexander underwent surgery for further repair on his torn ACL in January. U-T San Diego reports the follow-up procedure will push back his timetable to be ready for football. 

Alexander is a free agent this offseason after suffering the injury in early August with the Chargers. He spent 2012 with the Bolts and had a career-best 37 catches for 658 yards and seven touchdowns in only nine games. 

Alexander has a long history of knee injuries; this most recent one could permanently derail his NFL career.

Report: Danario Alexander underwent additional knee surgery in January
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Chargers wide receiver Danario Alexander underwent an additional surgery to repair his right knee in January, a source told U-T San Diego on Thursday.

Alexander has had knee issues his entire career and missed the last season after suffering a torn right ACL in August. This was Alexander's second surgery to his right knee, though he's also had five operations to his left. He'll become an unrestricted free agent on March 11, and may not be ready to return in July for training camp. That said, he still has his sight set on playing in 2014.

Eddie Royal hospital trip only precautionary
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mike McCoy told the media that Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal was taken to the hospital after a hard hit in practice for "precautionary reasons." The specificity of the injury has yet to be disclosed.

The Chargers are already missing wideout Malcom Floyd with a knee strain and were forced to place wide receiver Danario Alexander on waived/injured with a torn right ACL. If Alexander clears waivers he will be placed on IR and miss the season.

Fantasy Fallout from Danario Alexander's injury
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Danario Alexander's out for the year with a torn right ACL (after five surgeries in his left knee, go figure) and wiped off the Fantasy map. The Chargers have depth at receiver but it's not exactly quality depth.

Veteran Malcom Floyd should be locked into a starting role as should Vincent Brown, who just came back to practice this week after missing several days with a hamstring issue. Floyd has never broken through the 850-yard, six-touchdown barrier but should have his best chance to do so in 2013.

Brown has major appeal too -- some might take him over Floyd -- but he's proven to be somewhat brittle and has 19 career catches (and two TDs, all in 2011) to his name. He's a perfect late-round pick. 

Another very interesting late-round pick is rookie Keenan Allen, who has done good work at Chargers camp this far. He's been quick in his cuts and has shown a nice second gear to get away on longer routes. Allen also has a minor injury history, hurting his ankle and tearing his PCL in college last year. So far with the Chargers he's overcome it. He's also worth a late-round look. 

Eddie Royal has drawn positive reviews in camp but has a long history of groin and hamstring issues that cap his potential. He'll start the season as the Chargers' slot receiver and would be a safe bet for decent stats if he could stay on the field. He's played 22 games over the last two seasons with two scores. 

The most reliable target should remain Antonio Gates. After losing excess weight and putting on muscle, all reports say he looks good for a 33-year-old tight end. Though last season was a major disappointment he still managed to score at least seven times for the ninth straight year. He should see better stats this year; the Alexander injury perks up his prospects.
