Danario Alexander Hurt His Knee In Practice… Please Place It in Bubble Wrap

Danario Alexander looks like he will do just fine (had to throw that out there first), but he did hurt his knee during practice today after colliding with Shareece Wright in practice. He had the knee wrapped and put on ice, while he stood and watched the next hour of practice.

Watching Alexander’s knees and his health will be something Chargers fans will be doing during the season. His knees are held together with duct tape and paper clips already, so seeing any type of injury to him will give San Diego fans a scare.

Alexander might be held out of practice for a little bit and may miss the game this Thursday. The severity of the injury still is not known.

If he misses any time, it will give some of the other receivers an opportunity to get on the field and impress. I look forward to seeing Keenan Allen get some playing time on Thursday.

      Remember how everyone (including fans) lit up the torches, and sharpened the pitchforks when he was offered that contract? The media was already showcasing it as a HUGE mistake by TT, and that Cleveland or New England was going to sign him away. I could only laugh at them.. my pulse never went up for a minute.. hahaha.

          That was before Gronk & Hernandez the murderer went down.

      If something really DOES go down with DX’s knees,,, the article should just be titled “DX – Something awful has happened”.
