Former Tiger Alexander out for year with torn ACL

August 6th, 2013 in News

SAN DIEGO - San Diego Chargers wide receiver Danario Alexander tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in practice Tuesday and will be lost for the season.

Alexander, who has a history of knee injuries from his playing days at the University of Missouri, was acquired midway through last season and caught 37 passes for 658 yards and seven touchdowns in the final nine games.

Alexander's injury could help Robert Meachem see more playing time. Meachem, due a guaranteed $5 million, rarely saw the field after dropping a potential touchdown pass in a 7-6 loss at Cleveland last season.
