Chargers Have Two “New” Injury Updates; And It’s Not Good

By Sam Kweon

The title says it all for the San Diego Chargers injury report.

Michael Gehlken of UT San Diego reported that Shareece Wright is unofficially diagnosed with an MCL sprain.

“The Chargers starting cornerback left the field Sunday in the second quarter against the Jaguars. Early indications are he may have sprained his right medial collateral ligament, a source said, following an incidental leg whip from safety Jahleel Addae. Wright will undergo an MRI on Monday to further evaluate the injury’s nature,” Michael Gehlken.

Sprained MCL’s have a recovery time of 2-4 week’s so it looks like Jason Verrett will start if he is able to come back, and Richard Marshall will be the third guy up.

The second part is worse, but you Chargers fans probably already know about it. Manti Te’o confirmed that his foot is indeed fractured.

“However, the San Diego Chargers‘ inside linebacker confirmed that he suffered a fractured right foot — the same foot in which he suffered a fractured right bone in during August of his rookie season last year that forced him to miss the first three regular season games, and ultimately required offseason surgery to repair,” Eric Williams of

Let’s hope these two will be back on the field as soon as possible, but until then: Next Man Up!
