Chargers' Donald Butler underwent surgeries during offseason

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/1/15) Chargers linebacker Donald Butler revealed Monday that he underwent surgeries sometime during the offseason, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune.

"I had a couple of surgeries," Butler said. "I got those out of the way."

Butler refused to elaborate on the type of surgery he underwent. His season ended in Game 14 last season after he suffered a dislocated elbow.

"The reason why I played bad was, I just played bad," he said. "It happens."

Chargers LB Donald Butler looks to have better focus in 2015

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/3/15) The Chargers have a new linebacker coach in Mike Nolan. After speaking with Nolan, linebacker Donald Butler is looking to improve his focus this upcoming season, reports the UT San Diego.

"What I see is a guy who wants to get his game back in order," Nolan said. "Hopefully, he does it. He's said that he has a much better focus this year than he had last as far as his offseason goes. I'm very hopeful that he comes back in tip-top shape. We can start working on the things I hope to be able to teach him, to help him out and make him a better player."

Butler was expected to be a three-down linebacker for the Chargers last year. But as the 2014 season wore on, he was relegated to playing in the base defense. 

Butler is entering his sixth season in the NFL after missing his entire rookie season due to injury. Over his career, the 26-year-old has 330 total tackles, 6.5 sacks, 12 passes defensed, three interceptions and four forced fumbles.

Chargers LB Donald Butler dislocates left elbow, eligible for IR

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/15/14) Chargers linebacker Donald Butler suffered a dislocated elbow Sunday against the Broncos and the team is considering placing him on IR. 

Butler is a candidate for the designation but may not be placed as coach Mike McCoy said "We are exploring our options."

Butler had 73 total tackles and one sack this year in San Diego. 

Chargers list Week 14 inactives vs. Patriots

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/7/14) The Chargers have rulled the following players as inactive for Sunday night's Week 14 matchup with the Patriots: nose tackles Ryan Carrethers (elbow) and Damion Square, running back Ronnie Brown, wide receiver Dontrelle Inman, guard Jeff Baca, tight end David Johnson and linebacker Cordarro Law.

Carrethers had already been ruled out for Sunday's game so his absence won't be unexpected. The team does have all three of its questionable players available for action, as linebacker Donald Butler (quad) and offensive linemen D.J. Fluker (concussion) and Chris Watt (calf) are active. Also active are all the team's probable players, including quarterback Philip Rivers (chest), defensive tackle Corey Liuget (knee) and linebacker Andrew Gachkar (knee).
