Chargers' Hunter Henry: ACL surgery on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

It has been confirmed that Henry, who tore his right ACL on Tuesday, is slated to undergo season-ending surgery, the San Diego Union Tribune reports.

Henry, who caught 45 passes (on 63 targets) for 579 yards and four TDs in 14 games last season, appeared poised for an uptick in production this year, with the team's intentions to move on from veteran tight end Antonio Gates, who logged 52 targets in 2017. In the wake of Henry's injury, however, it's conceivable that Gates could return to Los Angeles after all. Moreover, the likes of Julius Thomas, Coby Fleener and Marcedes Lewis, among others, are available in free agency. Offseason acquisition Virgil Green is on hand, but he profiles more as a blocker, thus it seems inevitable that the Chargers will add a tight end with pass-catching prowess to the mix, in short order.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Absent from OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram didn't show up for OTAs on Tuesday, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

Instead, Ingram stayed in Florida to get ready for training camp that will start in late July. These are voluntary workouts, so Ingram's merely missing out on an opportunity to gel with new teammates. Ingram has racked up 29 sacks in the last three seasons and will start opposite Joey Bosa on a dangerous defensive front.

Chargers' Hunter Henry: Tears ACL, out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henry tore his ACL in OTAs on Tuesday and will miss the 2018 season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Though Schefter noted Henry and the club will seek a second opinion Wednesday, Schefter's source says Henry will not suit up this coming season. After snagging 12 touchdown passes over his first two seasons, Henry was headed for an uptick in responsibility after Antonio Gates wasn't re-signed. Henry and Gates split snaps the last two years, and Henry was targeted 4.4 times per game in 2017, compared to 3.3 targets for Gates. The No. 35 pick from the 2016 draft projected to be a top TE in the fantasy realm due to his larger role, but now the Chargers will be stuck scrambling for a replacement. Schefter added that Los Angeles might consider re-signing Gates to help fill the void. Blocking specialist Virgil Green appears to be atop the depth chart at the moment.

Chargers' Jatavis Brown: In contention for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is likely to contend for a starting job this season, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

Still just 24-years-old, Brown is coming off a disappointing, injury plagued 2017 campaign in which he recorded just 79 tackles and failed to register a single sack. However, the third-year player appears to be entering the new season in better shape, looking "thicker" than he has in the past thanks to a change in his diet. Brown's speed and lateral quickness are tantalizing qualities for a defense that isn't known for its quickness, but he'll certainly have plenty of competition for a starting role, as the Chargers opted to bring back utility linebacker Nick Dzubnar, and selected Uchenna Nwosu in the second-round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Given Denzel Perryman, the nominal starting inside linebacker, has yet to play a full 16-game season in his career, Brown could still find value in IDP leagues even if he's unable to win a starting job out of training camp.

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.
