Chargers LB Drue Tranquill left in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Bengals with an ankle injury. He was carted off with an air cast on the injured ankle, which points to a pretty serious injury. We'll watch for updates on his outlook.
Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that "early indications" point to an ankle fracture for Tranquill.
Chargers S Derwin James is active for today's game against the Broncos, and the team says he'll start in place of Roderic Teamer. HC Anthony Lynn also said they'd monitor James' playing time, so it's tough to know just how much he'll be on the field. But James is ready if you waited for him in your IDP lineup. The Chargers also announced that rookie LB Drue Tranquill will start in place of Denzel Perryman. Make the switch if you were planning to start Perryman in your fantasy football lineup.
Chargers S Roderic Teamer (groin) is active for tonight's game against the Chiefs. He should return to the starting lineup and be in play for IDP use. Rookie LB Drue Tranquill is inactive. He turned up questionable after a Saturday calf injury in practice. That's just as well, because LB Denzel Perryman is no longer on the injury report. That should mean Perryman returning to his starting job against Kansas City. Thomas Davis remains the only solid fantasy bet at LB among Chargers.
Chargers S Roderic Teamer is questionable for Monday night's game against the Chiefs. He put in full practices Friday and Saturday after missing the past 2 games with a groin injury, pointing to a likely return for the Mexico City game. The Chargers also designated S Adrian Phillips to return from IR this week, but we've seen no indication he has a chance at playing against Kansas City. Elsewhere on the L.A. defense, LB Denzel Perryman was off the final injury report, pointing to a return to the lineup for him. He was active last week but didn't play because of a knee injury. Rookie Drue Tranquill saw full playing time in Perryman's absence but should see that cut drastically against the Chiefs. Thomas Davis looks like the only relatively safe LB bet among Chargers.
