REPORT: Jahleel Addae broke his collarbone – Bolts from the Blue
This could mean Addae is heading to the IR for now. As a refresher, teams do not have to designate ahead of time that a player is “designated to return.” Players on the IR are eligible to return after being out for at least 6 weeks. However a team can still only choose one player to return. This decision could get complicated for the Chargers if Danny Woodhead’s injury is in fact an MCL sprain that could have a similar return timetable.
