The Chargers will likely place Woodhead on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.
Adam Schefter, citing a league source, reports that while the Chargers are still awaiting the official MRI results, they are “pretty certain” that RB Danny Woodhead tore his ACL on Sunday.
A report mentioned from last night mentioned that the Chargers were hoping that Woodhead had just an MCL sprain in his knee and this wasn’t a season-ending issue for him. However, that doesn’t sound like a good bet at this point.
Woodhead went down clutching his knee after taking a hit during Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. Woodhead was taken to the locker room soon after.
Here’s the play in which Woodhead was injured:
