Chargers ILB Denzel Perryman To Miss “At Least” 4 Games, Could Require Ankle Surgery

Update:

Ian Rapoport reports that Chargers LB Denzel Perryman will miss “at least” four games and could require ankle surgery for an injury he sustained during last week’s preseason opener.

  • Rapoport adds that Perryman is a “strong candidate” to open the year on injured reserve and should be an option for the team’s designation to return.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Chargers ILB Denzel Perryman will miss 4-6 weeks after suffering an ankle injury during the team’s recent preseason game.

The plan is for Perryman to get an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the issue. However, it appears as though Perryman will miss at least a month with this injury.

Perryman, 23 is a former second-round pick of the Chargers back in 2015. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $4.776 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $615,000 and $705,000 over the final two years of the agreement.

In 2016, Perryman appeared in 12 games and recorded 72 tackles, two sacks, an interception and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 43 linebacker out of 86 qualifying players.
