The paper writes that injuries could potentially derail English’s San Diego career. The former No. 16 overall pick has missed nine of the past 20 games due to injury. He missed time with a foot injury last year.
English has potential, but if he can’t stay healthy the Chargers will eventually lose patience.
Meanwhile, there has been a lot of talk that rookie Marcus Gilchrist could replace Antoine Cason at cornerback in San Diego. Cason has struggled in Greg Manusky’s defense this season. Cason gave up three touchdowns to the Jets’ Plaxico Burress in the Chargers' 27-21 loss on Sunday. Don’t be surprised if Cason gets another a chance to start Monday night at Kansas City. Yet, if Cason does start, his leash likely won’t be long.
There is talk rookie Colin Baxter and Jordan Todman will land on the Chargers’ practice squad. Baxter was cut by the Jets on Tuesday. The Chargers cut him in September and were disappointed that the Jets signed him and blocked him from their practice squad. Todman, a sixth-round pick, was cut by the Chargers during the weekend.
The Chiefs waived receiver Jeremy Horne.
