Chargers' Derwin James (meniscus) to miss 6 months
Los Angeles Chargers safety Derwin James will miss around 6 months with a meniscus injury.
The Chargers are seemingly one of the unhealthiest and unluckiest teams in the league year after year. What was initially thought to be a hamstring injury has turned out to be a meniscus injury for the star safety that will require surgery and cost him 6-8 months.
James graded out as Pro Football Focus' fifth-best safety in his rookie year, but missed significant time in his 2019 sophomore campaign. Still, while he did not qualify for the site's snap-minimum to receive a year-end ranking, his 82.3 grade in the games he did play would have landed him among elite company. It's a devastating blow for the entire Chargers defense.
