Shark Bites

Chargers LB Denzel Perryman left in the 1st quarter of Sunday night's preseason opener with a left ankle injury. ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports that Perryman returned to the sideline with crutches and a walking boot after evaluation. Perryman has been working as the starting MLB. We'll see how much of a setback this injury proves to be. Chargers backup DE Jeremiah Attaochu also left the game in the 1st half with a hamstring injury.

Update: The Chargers expect Perryman to miss 4-6 weeks, pending a Monday MRI.

Chargers LB Denzel Perryman is active for tonight's game against the Raiders. He was questionable after missing practice this week with a knee issue. Daniel Popper of The Athletic tweeted that Perryman "wasn't moving much" in pregame warm-ups. That's not necessarily bad, but Perryman certainly carries risk. Try to avoid him in IDP lineups if you can.

Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said this week that MLB Denzel Perryman is now healthy enough to return to his starting role in the middle, which includes calling the defensive plays. “I thought that he looked his best (in practice this week) since he came back from the surgery, to be honest with you,” Lynn told the Orange County Register. “He’s going to play.” LB Kyzir White looks like the player who's playing time will suffer. “Kyzir, he’s doing a heck of a job, but he has a lot to learn,” Lynn said. “He’s still learning. It’s just, now that Denzel is up to speed, we’re going to get him back in there because we’re different when he’s in the game versus the run. Kyzir will still get some reps, but not as many.” We've knocked White out of the Week 3 LB rankings and added Perryman. The veteran is still risky for IDP use, though. Even at full health, he has historically left the field for passing sub packages. Thomas Davis remains the Chargers LB to use.

Chargers LB Denzel Perryman is active for today's game against the Colts. He entered the day questionable with an ankle issue but is usable if you waited on him for your IDP lineup. We'll see how the rest of the LB corps sorts out in the opener.

LB Denzel Perryman has reached a new 2-year deal to remain with the Chargers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Perryman has lost 16 games to injury over the past 2 seasons. When on the field, he has generally been a less-than-full-time player. Last year, however, saw him grow to 75% to 87% in 5 of the 8 full games he played. Perryman carries LB3 potential for tackle-heavy IDP leagues.

Chargers MLB Denzel Perryman suffered an LCL injury in Sunday's win over the Raiders and will need season-ending hamstring surgery, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hayes Pullard looks likeliest to step into the lineup for Perryman, but only Jatavis Brown cracked 40% playing time among Chargers LBs Sunday. He's the only 1 that belongs in fantasy consideration for now. We'll see what the playing-time outlooks become for Pullard and rookie OLB Uchenna Nwosu. We'd bet on the team playing around with the LB combos the rest of the way, matching up with situations and seeking the best groupings.
