Danario Alexander has a long history of injuries. He has all the potential in the world, but he can’t stay on the field. He had to have another surgery on his messed up knee and it will take him even longer for him to return to action. It also seems unlikely that he will make a return to the Chargers roster now (Michael Gehlken).

Alexander would have been a huge boost to the offense if he were able to join the team on the field, but we all knew that the biggest concern with Alexander was his history of injuries. This time he had the injury before we were even able to re-sign him onto the roster. The team will have to look in another direction for help at wide receiver through free agency or in the draft.

Malcom Floyd would make a good option if he were able to return to the field, but his neck injury is career threatening. It is possible that Floyd will have to retire because of his neck injury.

Without Floyd and Alexander in the mix, the team will have to find some help at wide receiver. Keenan Allen is a rising star, but he needs some help around him on the roster. Vincent Brown needs to step up and Eddie Royal might be a cap casualty. The team will have to find some players to generate offense.
