Chargers RB Danny Woodhead Out For Season With Torn ACL


Ian Rapoport reports that an MRI on Chargers RB Danny Woodhead‘s knee confirmed that he has a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2016 season.

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:

Woodhead, 31, is in the final year of his three-year, $7.25 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $2 million for the 2016 season.

This season, Woodhead has rushed for 116 yards on 19 carries (6.1 YPC) to go along with six receptions for 35 yards receiving and a touchdown.

We’ll have more regarding Woodhead’s injury as the news is available.
