Mager did not play in Sunday's game against the Saints due to a hamstring injury, Eric D. Williams of ESPN reports.
Mager has been held out of training camp with what has now been reported as a hamstring injury, and while there was optimism surrounding his status for this past weekend, the team ultimately elected to hold him out yet again. Mager's inability to return to the field may ultimately put a spot for him on the team's final roster in jeopardy.
Mager (undisclosed) could be ready to make his 2017 preseason debut Sunday against the Saints, The Orange County Register reports.
Mager has been held out of training camp practices the past several weeks. He finished the 2016 season on IR with a shoulder injury, but It's unclear if this recent absence is due to his previous issue.
Mager (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The Chargers promoted linebacker Carlos Fields from the practice squad to fill Mager's roster spot. Mager had established himself as one of the Chargers' starting corners before suffering a shoulder injury against Carolina in Week 14. Trovon Reed has seen a significant uptick in snaps with Mager sidelined and he figures to see a healthy amount of playing time in Sunday's season finale.
Mager (elbow) is inactive for Saturday's game against Cleveland.
Mager will be missing his second straight game due to his injured elbow. Trovon Reed will likely see some extra time once again with Mager out.
