Larry English Placed On Season Ending IR

The San Diego Chargers linebacking unit just got a little worse today. The Chargers had to place LB Larry English on season ending IR today. English had been solid at outside lineabacker for the Chargers, but his season has come to an early end again.

The Chargers have to hope that Jarret Johnson will be able to stay healthy for the rest of the season or they will have to start Tourek Williams and Thomas Keiser off of the edge. I like those guys, but they shouldn’t be starting linebackers. The Chargers added former Denver Broncos LB Adrian Robinson onto the roster to help with the depth on the roster.

If the Chargers are able to jump into this playoff race in the next couple of weeks, they could get the help of Melvin Ingram back on the roster. He is on the PUP list right now and is eligible to come back, but he still is rehabbing from his injury. He needs some time to get in football shape or he will just get hurt all over again.

The Chargers are hurting bad for some depth at linebacker. I wonder what Sam Montgomery is doing right now?

    Dang, Big Larry just can’t get a full season together. This was his shot right here right now, instead it will be a couple other guys. I’d draft a OLB in the later rounds as his replacement as a backup and let Larry sail off into the sunset.

      I can’t see us hanging onto him either

      • Tyreece Kaete Sr.

        Tourek is nice

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      Plus Tourek Williams will have a whole offseason with the team. He should be a lot better

  • arnie

    How did it get worse? Tourek or T-Will came in and played well? In fact the defensive pass rush got better when Larry went out. They brought these guys in, let em’ play. You can’t stay healthy? Next Man Up!

      My thoughts exactly

    Oh, boy…. I could say so much… but, I won’t. Hahahaha.

    • Gunnar Martin

      Exactly how I feel too…

  • Calman21

    And lets call that a career. Dude is done. Injury prone and accomplishes very little on the field.

  • tubbs45

    B efore I write too much, I will say Thanks Larry.
    U nderstanding you collected quite a bit of money and can’t stay health.
    S till I had high hope that AJ was right and the experts were going to eat their crow.
    T ime to say bye!


    • Gunnar Martin

      You are on fire today

      Amazing comment

  • Conor Cahill

    Next man up. All aboard the Adrian Robinson train.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      Who is that again? Ha. Hope he makes some plays

      • tubbs45

        Bring in Beyonce, she will hypnotize them with her dancing.

      • Conor Cahill

        Haha I was hoping you knew. Only thing that jumps out at me is 0 career sacks in three years…

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          Haha. Saw the same thing. He is supposed to be a pass rush specialist too

  • 619chargers4life

    This don’t seem like bad luck , this seems like a player that once did a boat load of steroids and now his body is breaking down left and right.

  • Nick in PB

    I didn’t even notice he went out of the game? Says it all right there.

    • veazy

      Same here

  • phobos57
