  • Chargers' Justin Jones: Sack and fumble recovery in win

    Jones recorded five tackles (four solo) along with a sack and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 37-21 win over the Giants.

    Jones has now recorded a sack in each of his last two games as the young pass rusher continues to perform at a high level in the absence of Linval Joseph (illness). The 25-year-old recovered his second fumble of the season, setting up the Chargers in great field position, which led to a touchdown drive. In Thursday night's upcoming matchup against the Chiefs, Jones will need to be able to pressure Patrick Mahomes or it could be a long evening for the Los Angeles defense.
