While enjoying their bye week entering Week 12, the Los Angeles Chargers were given some unfortunate news.

It has been reported that defensive back Michael Davis will be suspended for the team’s next two games following a violation of the league’s policy against substance abuse.

Davis, an undrafted free agent out of BYU in 2017, is in his third season with the team. He has earned the role as a starting cornerback for the team and has 21 tackles, one interception and five passes defended on the season.

The news comes after Davis was spotlighted during the Monday Night Football loss to the Kansas City Chiefs this past week in Mexico, as Davis is familiar with that area due to his Mexican heritage. His mother, Ana Martinez, is from Mexico and he had made several trips there while growing up.

Things were looking up for Davis, who had played in nearly 500 consecutive defensive snaps for the team this season. This will be a hurdle he will need to overcome.

Brandon Facyson will likely step into a larger role in the team’s next two games against the Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars. Also, look for the team to call up either Tevaughn Campbell or Quenton Meeks from the practice squad for added depth in those two games.

Desmond King could also see additional snaps at one of the outside cornerback spots.

Following his suspension, Davis will be eligible to return in Week 15 against the Minnesota Vikings. That game takes place on Sunday Night Football.
