Michael Gehlken of the Union-Tribune reports that Chargers rookie G Donavon Clark suffered a torn ACL during Friday’s preseason game and will subsequently miss the 2016 season.
It’s likely that the Chargers will place Clark on season-ending injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.
It was clear that this could be a major injury for Clark, as he had to be carted off the field last night.
Clark, 23, was taken with the No. 224 overall pick in the seventh-round of this year’s draft. He signed a four-year, $2,426,096 contract with the Chargers and stands to make a base salary of $450,000 for the 2016 season.
During his college career at Michigan State, Clark made 33 starts at both right guard, right tackle and left tackle.
