  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Will play Sunday

    Tranquill (ankle) is active Sunday against the Raiders, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Tranquill will return after a one-game absence, which should be a boost to the Chargers' linebacker unit and defense as whole.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Expected to play Sunday

    Tranquill (ankle) is listed as questionable but likely to play Sunday against the Raiders according to head coach Brandon Staley, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Tranquill suffered the injury against the Texans in Week 16 and sat out Week 17 against Denver. His return in a win-or-go-home game Sunday against the Raiders would be a boost not only to the Chargers' linebacker unit, but to the defense as a whole.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Limited at practice

    Tranquill (ankle) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The linebacker missed the Chargers' win over the Broncos last weekend while dealing with the ankle injury, though his ability to practice Wednesday bodes well for his chances to play Sunday night against the Raiders. Tranquill has had a strong third season in the league, making 72 tackles while recording his first 1.5 sacks of his career as well as deflecting a pass and recovering a fumble over 13 contests.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Doubtful against Broncos

    Tranquill (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

    Tranquill was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday and appears unlikely to play in Week 17. If he's ultimately held out, Nick Niemann could step into a starting role Sunday.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Suffers leg injury Sunday

    Tranquill (leg) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Texans, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    Tranquill recorded five tackles before leaving the team's Week 16 contest with a leg injury. If he's unable to return, Nick Niemann will likely see increased snaps for the remainder of the contest.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Effective against Bengals

    Tranquill recorded 10 tackles (six solo), a sack and a pass defense in Sunday's 41-22 win over Cincinnati.

    Tranquill tied for the team lead in tackles during Sunday's blowout win while also recording his highest total in the category since Week 5. The 26-year-old has had somewhat inconsistent results for the Chargers this year, and he's now recorded 57 tackles (34 solo), 1.5 sacks and a pass defense across his first 10 appearances of the season.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Activated from COVID-19 list

    Tranquill (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list by the Chargers on Saturday.

    Tranquill was sidelined for last week's loss to the Vikings after he tested positive for COVID-19. However, he'll be able to return to the field for Sunday's matchup against Pittsburgh after he totaled 42 tackles (25 solo) and 0.5 sacks across his first seven appearances of the year.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Officially out Sunday

    Tranquill (illness) will not pay in Sunday's Week 10 game versus the Vikings, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    Tranquill landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday after testing positive for the illness. He will need two negative tests at least 24 hours apart before he is deemed eligible to return. Look for Nick Niemann to step in to a starting role at inside linebacker in his absence.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

    Tranquill was put on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    The linebacker tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday and he will have to clear league protocols before he can make his return to the team. Tranquill will need two negative tests at least 24 hours apart, making it extremely unlikely he'll be available Sunday against the Vikings. In his absence, Nick Niemann would seemingly step into a starting role at inside linebacker.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Nine total tackles in win

    Tranquill recorded nine tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Eagles.

    Tranquill has now recorded nine-plus total tackles in two of his last three games, setting the stage for his best statistical NFL season yet. The 2019 fourth-round pick has stepped into an important defensive role for Los Angeles. However, it may be a difficult afternoon next Sunday as Tranquill and the Chargers look to contain star running back Dalvin Cook.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Active to face Patriots

    Tranquill (chest) is active for Sunday's game against New England.

    Tranquill was limited in all three practices this week coming out of Los Angeles' Week 7 bye, but he's been deemed healthy enough to make his return to action -- he hasn't played since Week 5 when he recorded 11 tackles against the Browns. His presence certainly provides a boost to Los Angeles' defensive unit.
