It’s like last week all over again for the San Diego Chargers. They have jumped out to a 21-0 lead over the Jacksonville Jaguars, but they’ve also seen a key member of their offense carted off with an injury.

Running back Danny Woodhead was injured in the second quarter of the game after a 4-yard reception. He was checked out by trainers but when it was determined that he couldn’t put any pressure on his knee, they called for the cart. To that point, Woodhead had three carries for 27 yards and the four-yard reception in the game.
Last week, the Chargers also lost wide receiver Keenan Allen to a knee injury that will keep him out for the rest of the year. Hopefully, Woodhead’s injury doesn’t end up being that serious.

Obviously, an MRI will be needed to determine the severity of the injury, but any time Woodhead misses is going to hamper the offense. He’s probably the best receiving running back in the NFL and is key on third down. Behind him, the Chargers will have to turn to undrafted rookie Kenneth Farrow, and former New York Giants running back Andre Williams, who is inactive today.
We will continue to monitor this situation and bring you more as it develops.
