Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers placed Lamp (lower leg) on injured reserve Wednesday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

Caplan sustained a broken fibula during Week 7's loss to the Titans. He'll miss the remainder of the season on IR and work to get back to full health for 2020. Dan Feeney figures to slot into the starting lineup at left guard going forward.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Out with broken fibula
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp suffered a broken fibula during Sunday's loss to the Titans and will miss the rest of the 2019 season, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Lamp was previously reported to have sustained a broken ankle, but coach Anthony Lynn clarified the fracture is actually to his lower leg. Regardless, the 25-year-old's season is over and he should be headed to injured reserve in the near future. Dan Feeney should take over at left guard for the Chargers.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Done for the season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp suffered a season-ending ankle fracture during Sunday's loss to the Titans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Lamp is bound to hit injured reserve in the near future. He'll work to recover in time for the 2020 season. It's a brutal loss for the Chargers' offensive line, which already lost center Mike Pouncey (neck) for the season. Dan Feeney will likely start at left guard going forward.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Downgraded to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp (ankle) won't return to Sunday's game against Tennessee.

Lamp suffered the injury during the second quarter and had to be carted off the field. Now that he's officially out, Dan Feeney should continue to take over at left guard. It's likely more details will emerge in the coming days regarding the specifics of the injury.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Carted off field Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Titans.

Lamp suffered the injury in the middle of the second quarter, and had to be carted off, showing some serious concern for the injury. As long as the Western Kentucky product is sidelined, look for Dan Feeney to take over at left guard.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Will compete for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp is expected to compete for a starting spot along the offensive line in 2019, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

The 2017 second-round pick has struggled to make much of an impact in his two seasons in the NFL to date. Lamp's rookie campaign ended prematurely thanks to a preseason ACL tear, an injury that essentially forced him to redshirt his sophomore season in the NFL as he continued to work back into shape. Now two years removed from the severe knee injury, Lamp is expected to compete for a starting guard spot and likely will have a leg up on the incumbent, Michael Schofield III, should he have his roster bonus picked up in March. Given the Chargers' offensive line ranked near the bottom of the league according to Pro Football Focus, it seems likely the franchise will bring in a number of potential options, meaning Lamp isn't necessarily guaranteed a starting job despite his high draft selection.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Still recovering from torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp is still recovering from a torn ACL suffered during the 2017 preseason, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

Lamp has clearly progressed in his recovery, having avoided the PUP list. However, he does not appear close to a return to on-field action. The 24-year-old missed his entire rookie season due to the ACL injury, and he will need to get up to speed in a reasonable amount of time to have any chance of earning a significant role on the Chargers' offensive line this season.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Expected to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp is expected to play in the Chargers' next preseason contest against the 49ers, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Thursday will be Lamp's first in-game action since tearing his ACL during the 2017 preseason, an injury which ruined the guard's rookie campaign. The 24-year-old is expected to act as a swing lineman as he continues to work back into shape for the regular season.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Participating in team drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp (knee) participated in team drills during Monday's practice, Eric Williams of ESPN.com reports.

Lamp's activity level continues to increase since being activated from the PUP list last Monday, having missed the entirety of his rookie campaign due to a torn ACL. He appears to remain on pace for Week 1 of the regular season, despite likely not making an appearance in either of the Chargers' remaining preseason games.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Sitting out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp (knee) will not play during Saturday's preseason contest against the Seahawks, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Lamp's activation from the PUP list is an encouraging sign, but it doesn't appear as though he's ready yet to take the field in game action. He missed all of his rookie campaign in 2017 after suffering a season-ending ACL tear, so he will have to get up to speed if he has any hopes of starting immediately in 2018.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Activated from PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp (knee) was activated from the PUP list Monday, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Lamp, who suffered a torn ACL during his rookie campaign in 2017, appears on pace for Week 1 of the regular season. The second-round pick is slated to compete with Michael Schofield and Erick Wren for the starting job at right guard.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Starting camp on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp (knee) is beginning training camp on the PUP list, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Lamp is working his way back from a torn ACL, so his placement on the PUP list comes as no surprise. The team has stated in the past that Lamp is progressing well in his recovery, and the hope is that he'll be ready for Week 1. A second-round pick from 2017, Lamp will be expected to compete for a starting role at right guard when he returns to action.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: No timeline for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Tom Telesco said Lamp (knee) is progressing in his recovery but there isn't a timeline for the offensive lineman to return to action, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.

Lamp is bouncing back from a torn ACL in his right knee and had a follow-up surgery during the offseason. While the 2017 second-rounder could be restricted during training camp, he at least seems to be on track for Week 1. Lamp is the favorite to start at right guard, despite missing his entire rookie season.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Recovering from minor procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp underwent a minor procedure on his right knee this offseason, Steve Wyche of NFL Network reports.

Lamp missed his entire rookie season while recovering from a torn ACL in the right knee, so it's somewhat concerning that he required a follow-up procedure. Even so, head coach Anthony Lynn suggested that Lamp could be back to full health in the near future, so it looks like the 24-year-old will remain in the mix for a starting role at guard once training camp arrives.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Nearing full recovery from ACL injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp (knee) is nearing a full recovery following the torn ACL he suffered last season.

The 2017 second-round pick has already participated in early offseason workouts, suggesting he's at least closing in on 100 percent health. According to coach Anthony Lynn, Lamp is "right on schedule" as far as a complete recovery is concerned. Barring any unforeseen setbacks, Lamp looks poised to get 2018 started on the right footing.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Resumes running
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp (knee) said Wednesday that he's resumed running and remains in line to take part in offseason workouts with the team, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports. "I'm feeling really good so far," Lamp said. "I'm five months post [surgery], and coming along really good. The training staff and I have been working Monday through Friday, and we've been starting to run and do things like that."

A second-round pick out of Western Kentucky last April, Lamp was set to compete for a starting gig at guard for the Chargers before an ACL tear suffered on the third day of padded practices in training camp ended the rookie's season before it even started. Fortunately for Lamp, the timing of his injury and the surgery that followed should put him on track to be a full participant in training camp during the upcoming summer. The 6-foot-4, 310-pound Lamp could again be in the conversation for a starting role at guard.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: On track to return from injury during OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp (knee) is on track to return for OTAs in the spring, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.

The 2017 second-round pick underwent surgery in August to repair a torn ACL in his right knee, but it looks as if the lineman should be ready to practice heading into the next campaign. Projected as a starting guard prior to the injury, the emergence of Kenny Wiggins will likely make it more difficult for Lamp to find a starting spot along the offensive line.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Undergoes surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp (knee) underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee Monday, Eric Williams of ESPN reports.

Everything reportedly looks good following the surgery. Before he went down during the first week of camp, the second-round pick was expected to win a starting guard job. However, he'll now wait until next season to make his NFL debut.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Suffers torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee.

This is a tough break for Lamp, who was a projected starter at guard and will now miss his entire rookie season. It's likely only a matter of time before he's placed on injured reserve.

Chargers' Forrest Lamp: Carted off field after injuring leg
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamp injured his right left on Wednesday and had to be carted off the field, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

Lamp was expected to start somewhere along the offensive line, with the rookie taking first-team snaps at right guard and left guard to begin camp. More information regarding the severity of the injury should arrive in the coming days, but for now expect to see some combination of Dan Feeney, Donavon Clark and Max Tuerk fill the role.
