The Los Angeles Chargers just took a brutal hit for the 2020 regular season.
The Bolts secondary is loaded with guys such as; Desmond King, Chris Harris Jr., Casey Hayward, and more. There is no doubt that the leader of that secondary is third-year safety, Derwin James. James exited Sunday’s practice early limping.
Reports say he was throwing his gloves in anger, and we now know why. Derwin tore his meniscus and will require surgery. This is a pivotal blow to the Chargers’ deep secondary. James will approximately miss 6-8 months.
Head coach Anthony Lynn stood his ground in regards to trying to help out the secondary via free agency after the injury. Lynn stated:
“Since you guys are constantly telling me how stacked my secondary is, why the hell would I be looking anywhere else?”
This comes in the wake of veteran safety Earl Thomas being released from the Baltimore Ravens last week. Some drew questions as to whether the Bolts would target Earl.
Head coach Anthony Lynn reminded us about how much depth our secondary actually has, and understandably so.
