Danario Alexander has more knee issues, might not play in 2014


San Diego Chargers wide receiver Danario Alexander is unquestionably an incredibly talented wide receiver, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a more injury-prone player in the league right now. After signing a one-year deal last offseason to remain with the Chargers, Alexander tore his ACL in early Augus. He’s suffered a ridiculous number of serious knee injuries over his career, and the 25-year-old had to undergo another ACL surgery earlier this year. His career is at the crossroads following yet another knee surgery, and it would be an absolute shock for the Chargers to keep him around.

Sadly, there’s more bad news regarding Alexander on the injury front, as a source tells FOX Sports’s Alex Marvez that Alexander needed “multiple” surgeries on his right knee after suffering an infection following his ACL tear earlier this year. This is even more troubling than the infection Rob Gronkowski had last offseason, because Alexander has a more extensive injury history and knee injuries are more severe than arm injuries.

Per Marvez, Alexander might not be able to play in 2014 as a result, and that’s only going to put an even bigger damper on his free agent market this offseason. It’s difficult not to feel awful for him, because he has loads of talent and showed it in 2012 when he was healthy.
