Chargers' Craig Mager: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mager (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Mager sat out a week of practice nursing a hamstring injury before falling on injured reserve. Primarily a special teams piece, the depth cornerback's absence should not significantly impact the Chargers' defense. With Mager sidelined, Michael Davis and Brandon Facyson are presented with the opportunity to claim increased special teams snaps going forward.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mager (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday after missing the Chargers' first two preseason games, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

Mager, who's been dealing with a hamstring injury throughout training camp, tore the same muscle during his rookie year, and the Chargers elected to proceed cautiously with his recovery this time around. He'll look to make his preseason debut Saturday against the Rams and hope to make the Chargers' final roster and provide depth in the secondary.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mager didn't play in Sunday's game against the Saints due to a hamstring injury, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

While there was optimism surrounding Mager's status heading into the weekend, the team ultimately elected to hold him out with the hamstring issue that has hampered him for much of training camp. If Mager is unable to get back on the field for the final two preseason tilts, his chances of making the team's final roster will take a significant hit.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
