Chargers Running Back Danny Woodhead Likely Out for Season

Chargers Running Back Danny Woodhead Likely Out for Season

Peter G. Aiken/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Already dealing with an injury to starting running back Ryan Mathews, San Diego Chargers running back Danny Woodhead is likely out the rest of the season with a severe high ankle sprain as well as a fractured fibula.

Woodhead suffered the injury during the first quarter of the team’s win over the Buffalo Bills. He needed to be carted off the field.

“Hey, we’re going to keep rolling,” Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said. “We have to keep going, and we’re not going to make any excuses.”

Donald Brown, who signed with the team during the offseason, will likely see the bulk of the carries while Mathews recovers from a MCL knee sprain.

“Unfortunately, that’s the nature of the sport,” said Brown, who finished with 62 yards on 31 carries in San Diego’s 22-10 win at Buffalo. “Guys are going to get hurt, and other guys have to step out and carry the load. Next man (up) is pretty much the mantra of this team.”

Woodhead ends his season with 38 rushing yards on 15 carries.

Chargers Prepare for Tough Road Game in Buffalo

Chargers Prepare for Tough Road Game in Buffalo

Peter G. Aiken/Getty Images(SAN DIEGO) — The San Diego Chargers (1-1) have a tough task at hand on Sunday when they travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills (2-0).

San Diego is coming off a big win against the Seattle Seahawks in week 2 and quarterback Philip Rivers understands this will be another challenge in a long season.

“It’s going to be tough,” Rivers said. “[They're] not a team we’re overly familiar with and they’ve won two in a row. We got to go play good.”

Chargers head coach Mike McCoy is doing everything he can to prepare his defense for stand-out rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins.

“He’s on his first go-around with each defensive back,” McCoy said of the rookie.  “He plays it for a little bit and as the game goes on he learns a few more things about the technique that guys trying to play. He’s got so much to learn, but he’s done a nice job the first couple weeks of the season, very explosive player.”

Richard Sherman: I Was Not Exposed

Richard Sherman: I Was Not Exposed

Steve Dykes/Getty Images(RENTON, Wash.) — Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman still is confident in his abilities after Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen said Sherman was a “normal guy and not a shutdown corner” after their win over Seattle on Sunday.

“You know, when a guy wants his name in the paper, he’s gotta say something crazy,” Sherman said about Allen on Wednesday. “It’s humorous. I guess he wants something to tell his grandkids: ‘Remember the day I caught a couple of balls on Richard Sherman? No touchdowns, but I caught a few.'”

Sherman and the Seahawks are preparing for a Super Bowl rematch against the Broncos on Sunday.

Sherman added that he is still a shutdown cornerback although he isn’t perfect all the time. “I played pretty well,” he continued. “But it’s really funny that two little Chargers say I was exposed. One had 50 yards, and one had 60. It makes you laugh.”

Sherman was referencing Allen, who had five receptions for 55 yards, and Eddie Royal, who had seven receptions for 69 yards, respectively.

The Seahawks signed Sherman to a record four-year deal during the offseason.

Cardinals Edge Chargers, 18-17, on Monday Night

Cardinals Edge Chargers, 18-17, on Monday Night

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(GLENDALE, Ariz.) — Veteran Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer rallied the Cardinals past the Chargers on opening night with a 13-yard touchdown pass to John Brown late in the fourth quarter.

The Cardinals defense did the rest and batted down a Philip Rivers pass on fourth down for the 18-17 win.

“It was a sweet little touchdown,” Palmer said of Browns first-career touchdown. “That’s what he does. He’s so shifty. It’s like somebody’s controlling him with a joystick. He is so quick and so hard to find on those little quick screens.”

Arizona was down 17-6 entering the fourth quarter and Palmers’ two touchdown passes in the fourth gave them the lead for good.

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald had only one reception in the fourth quarter, but kept his streak alive at 150 games with at least one reception.

“Too many mistakes. Too many mistakes in crucial times,” Rivers said after the game. “We had plenty of opportunities. Offensively, we had too many mistakes in crucial times that turned into points.”
