Danario Alexander could miss 2014 with knee problems


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/19/2014) Chargers receiver Danario Alexander continues to have problems with his surgically-repaired knee, reports FOX Sports.

The report says Alexander has required "multiple" surgeries on his right knee because of infection after undergoing a second reconstruction of his ACL in January. As a result, Alexander might not be able to play in 2014. He is an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Alexander had the first ACL surgery in August and suffered complications, which caused a second surgery in January. He then had an infection that forced Alexander to receive intensive antibiotic treatment as well as the subsequent surgeries.

Alexander, 25, already had undergone five surgeries on his left knee dating back to before he entered the NFL in 2010.


Danario Alexander had a second knee surgery in January


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/7/2014) Receiver Danario Alexander underwent surgery for further repair on his torn ACL in January. U-T San Diego reports the follow-up procedure will push back his timetable to be ready for football. 

Alexander is a free agent this offseason after suffering the injury in early August with the Chargers. He spent 2012 with the Bolts and had a career-best 37 catches for 658 yards and seven touchdowns in only nine games. 

Alexander has a long history of knee injuries; this most recent one could permanently derail his NFL career. 


Report: Danario Alexander underwent additional knee surgery in January


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/7/2014) Chargers wide receiver Danario Alexander underwent an additional surgery to repair his right knee in January, a source told U-T San Diego on Thursday.

Alexander has had knee issues his entire career and missed the last season after suffering a torn right ACL in August. This was Alexander's second surgery to his right knee, though he's also had five operations to his left. He'll become an unrestricted free agent on March 11, and may not be ready to return in July for training camp. That said, he still has his sight set on playing in 2014.

Eddie Royal hospital trip only precautionary


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2013) Mike McCoy told the media that Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal was taken to the hospital after a hard hit in practice for "precautionary reasons." The specificity of the injury has yet to be disclosed.

The Chargers are already missing wideout Malcom Floyd with a knee strain and were forced to place wide receiver Danario Alexander on waived/injured with a torn right ACL. If Alexander clears waivers he will be placed on IR and miss the season.


Fantasy Fallout from Danario Alexander's injury


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/6/2013) Danario Alexander's out for the year with a torn right ACL (after five surgeries in his left knee, go figure) and wiped off the Fantasy map. The Chargers have depth at receiver but it's not exactly quality depth.

Veteran Malcom Floyd should be locked into a starting role as should Vincent Brown, who just came back to practice this week after missing several days with a hamstring issue. Floyd has never broken through the 850-yard, six-touchdown barrier but should have his best chance to do so in 2013.

Brown has major appeal too -- some might take him over Floyd -- but he's proven to be somewhat brittle and has 19 career catches (and two TDs, all in 2011) to his name. He's a perfect late-round pick. 

Another very interesting late-round pick is rookie Keenan Allen, who has done good work at Chargers camp this far. He's been quick in his cuts and has shown a nice second gear to get away on longer routes. Allen also has a minor injury history, hurting his ankle and tearing his PCL in college last year. So far with the Chargers he's overcome it. He's also worth a late-round look. 

Eddie Royal has drawn positive reviews in camp but has a long history of groin and hamstring issues that cap his potential. He'll start the season as the Chargers' slot receiver and would be a safe bet for decent stats if he could stay on the field. He's played 22 games over the last two seasons with two scores. 

The most reliable target should remain Antonio Gates. After losing excess weight and putting on muscle, all reports say he looks good for a 33-year-old tight end. Though last season was a major disappointment he still managed to score at least seven times for the ninth straight year. He should see better stats this year; the Alexander injury perks up his prospects. 


Torn right ACL for Danario Alexander


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/6/2013) Danario Alexander will undergo his sixth career knee surgery following a torn right ACL suffered in practice on Tuesday. Alexander, the Chargers breakout receiver from a year ago, has had a number of procedures on his knees dating back to his college days. 

The 6-foot-5, 217 pounder was a midseason roster addition for the Bolts and caught on quickly last season, catching 37 passes for 658 yards and seven touchdowns in just nine games with meaningful action (10 total). 

The Chargers receiving corps will remain buoyed by veteran Malcom Floyd, with Vincent Brown, rookie Keenan Allen and veterans Eddie Royal and Robert Meachem picking up the slack. Tight end Antonio Gates should help out, too. 


Danario Alexander hurts right knee


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2013) Chargers No. 1 wideout Danario Alexander, who has a history of left knee problems, hurt his right knee in practice Tuesday, reports the Union-Tribune. Alexander stood and watched the next hour of practice with his knee wrapped and iced.


Danario Alexander leaves practice, comes back


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/26/2013) Chargers receiver Danario Alexander got treatment for a leg issue before returning to practice Thursday, according to U-T San Diego. This came on Thursday, the Chargers' very first training camp practice. 

The issue is worth watching since Alexander has gone through five knee surgeries over his football-playing life and is considered at-risk to get hurt. 


Alexander's knee feels great


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2013) Receiver Danario Alexander told the Chargers official website that he's working on being a leader among the receiving corps this summer. More importantly, Alexander is focused on football and not his knees after dealing with injuries over the course of his young career. "My knee felt great last year and it’s carried over into the offseason," Alexander said. "I want to stay on top of it with a little rehab work here and there. But overall it’s feeling good and when it feels good I play well, like you saw last year."

Alexander says he's at 'full speed'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/24/2013) U-T San Diego speculated that Danario Alexander could be a trade target for the 49ers in the wake of losing Michael Crabtree but the Chargers are high on their young, tall talent. The team is reportedly excited about Alexander after he clicked in a big way with Philip Rivers last season. Alexander has looked good in spring OTAs, making back-shoulder catches on Monday. "This is a great opportunity for me to just get better without worrying about any injuries," Alexander said. "I was trying to ease into it last year, trying to keep my feet under me. But, now, I'm full speed all the way."

McCoy: DX a 'big target' for Rivers


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/26/2013) Just days after Danario Alexander signed his restricted free agent tender offer to play for the Chargers one more year, head coach Mike McCoy told the media what he likes about the fourth-year receiver. "When we first got here -- looking at his yards per reception over 17 yards last year -- he did some great things," McCoy said. "It was great to see him from the first day of voluntary camps to the last day, you could see him buying into what we’re doing. You can see the reputation and really the relationship that he has with Philip (Rivers). Philip has a lot of confidence in him. They work well together. He works extremely hard and he has a great opportunity here. He’s excited moving forward. I think he likes what we’re doing here. I know he’s a big target for Philip and he’s doing some great things so we have a good group out there."

Coach sees Rivers-Danario connection


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/19/2013) New Chargers coach Mike McCoy noticed the chemistry developed between receiver Danario Alexander and quarterback Philip Rivers. Alexander, who came to minicamp on a waiver agreement since he's a restricted free agent, came out of nowhere last season and helped salvage some of the Chargers offense with seven touchdowns in 10 games whilst averaging over 17 yards per catch. "I think he and Philip have a great working relationship on the football field," McCoy said. "When you see some of the plays (Thursday) throughout practice, you know they’re on the same page on a lot of things. It is new terminology -- don’t get me wrong -- but Philip knows the way he’s going to run certain routes, so they had a great three days together."

Alexander shows at Chargers Park


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/16/2013) Restricted free agent Danario Alexander is participating in the Chargers' minicamp despite not signing a contract. The team and Alexander agreed to a deal where he would get compensated in case of injury.

Teams checking out Alexander?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/5/2013) With the deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets with other teams coming up on April 19, TheSidelineView.com reports two to three teams have shown interest in Chargers restricted free agent receiver Danario Alexander. The report adds teams won't want to check out Alexander if the Chargers show a commitment to matching any decent offer he gets. If another team signs Alexander to an offer sheet and the Chargers fail to match, the Bolts won't receive any compensation. As of this update the Chargers had just under $6 million of salary cap space.

Chargers going low on Alexander?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/11/2013) After catching seven touchdowns in 10 games and averaging over 17 yards per catch for the Chargers last season, you'd think Danario Alexander would be in the team's long-term plans. But U-T San Diego reports the Chargers have applied the low "original round" tender offer on Alexander, meaning the Chargers won't get any compensation for Alexander if they don't match an offer he signs elsewhere. It was previously reported the Chargers would use their first-round tender on Alexander to keep him in town.
