  • Chargers' Nasir Adderley: Succeeding with bigger role

    Adderley has been taking on more responsibility in the absence of Derwin James (contract dispute) during training camp, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Adderley has been quarterbacking the defense, while also demonstrating a greater grasp of the scheme heading into his fourth season. "You're able to look at the quarterback's tendencies," he said. "You're able to look at where the receivers align and the down-and-distances and all of that. When you're not thinking about what you have to do, you're able to look at a lot more." The results have been noticeable in camp so far, including interceptions on back-to-back days in practice.

  • Chargers' Nasir Adderley: Emerges as quality safety

    Adderley finished the 2021 season with 99 tackles (69 solo), five passes defended, one forced fumble and a half of a sack.

    Adderley was forced into the starting free safety role last season after another season-ending injury to Derwin James, but it was clear early in the 2021 campaign the extra playing time gave the third-year safety a new sort of confidence in his role this time alongside the aforementioned Pro Bowl safety. There was still plenty of coverage errors attributed to Adderley, and the third-year safety will never be known as a hard hitter, but the 2019 second-round pick certainly doesn't appear to be a negative player at this juncture of his career. Expect more growth and another season playing alongside James to possibly boost his value in IDP formats.

  • Chargers' Nasir Adderley: Moves off COVID-19 list

    Adderley was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday and will be eligible to play Sunday against the Broncos.

    The new rules outlined by the NFL and the NFL Players Association couldn't have come at a better time for the unvaccinated Adderley, who is now eligible to play after five days in isolation. The second-year safety is in the midst of a breakout season with career highs already in tackles and pass breakups.

  • Chargers' Nasir Adderley: Could play Week 17 after all

    Adderley (illness), who was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, will be eligible to play Sunday against the Broncos if he's asymptomatic or showing improvement in his recovery from the virus at the conclusion of a five-day quarantine, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    As an unvaccinated player who tested positive for the virus, Adderley was expected to face a 10-day quarantine, but that timeline was cut in half Tuesday, when the NFL and NFL Players Association reached an agreement to set isolation time at five days for all players who test positive for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status. Though Adderley looks like he'll still remain away from the Chargers through at least Friday, he should be ready to go Sunday so long as his symptoms have resolved while he's in isolation. The third-year safety has recorded 81 tackles, five pass breakups, a fumble recovery and a half sack through 13 games this season.

  • Chargers' Nasir Adderley: Out Week 17

    Adderley (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday and won't play Sunday against the Broncos, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    The implication of being ruled out straightaway is that Adderley is unvaccinated and tested positive for the virus, which triggers a 10-day quarantine. The Chargers now have six members of the secondary on the COVID list, potentially leaving the unit shorthanded for Week 17.
