Report: Danny Woodhead needs season-ending surgery
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (9/21/14) Chargers running back Danny Woodhead is likely done for the season, FOXSports.com reports, after suffering a serious ankle injury in Week 3 against the Bills.
Woodhead injured the ankle when he was tackled on his first run of the game, and the injury will likely require surgery, according to the report. He has been diagnosed with a severe high ankle sprain and fractured fibula, injuries that will likely end his campaign.
At this point, the team has not given an update on his status.
Danny Woodhead carted off, unable to return
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (9/21/14) The short-handed Chargers backfield took another hit in Week 3, as Danny Woodhead was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Bills with an ankle injury.
Woodhead went down with an ankle injury on his first carry of the game, a 1-yard run, and had to be carted off the field after falling awkwardly. He was ruled out shortly after going to the locker room, and will likely undergo X-rays to determine the extent of the injury.
The Chargers are back in action in Week 4 against the Jaguars, and Woodhead's availability for next Sunday's game is obviously not known at this point.
Danny Woodhead carted off with first-quarter ankle injury
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (9/21/14) Chargers running back Danny Woodhead was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Bills in the first quarter, after suffering a right ankle injury.
Woodhead was injured on his first carry of the game, a 1-yard run that saw him go down awkwardly while being tackled. He is officially questionable to return, however he also hard to be carted off the field and to the locker room, a sign that the injury might be a serious one.
Danny Woodhead played well in his first year in San Diego and we'd like to see him do it again this season. He was the perfect complement to Ryan Mathews, but now the Chargers added Donald Brown as a free agent, which should affect Woodhead. He had 106 carries for 429 yards and two touchdowns in 2013 with a career-high 76 catches for 605 yards and six touchdowns. His value is obviously higher in PPR leagues than standard formats, and we'd draft him with a mid-round pick in those leagues. In standard formats, Woodhead is only worth a late-round pick, and keep an eye on Brown's role in training camp. But if Woodhead remains the passing-down back then he will still post quality stats, especially for PPR owners.
