Chargers Corner Carted to Locker Room

Los Angeles Chargers fans were witnesses to a disquieting scene against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 7. Cornerback J.C. Jackson suffered a potentially serious leg injury during the second quarter of the team's game against the Seattle Seahawks and was carted to the locker room. Jackson went down clutching his right knee on a Seahawks touchdown pass and immediately appeared in severe pain. He was down on the field for an extended period as medical staff attended to him. He was eventually helped onto a cart and escorted to the locker room.

Jackson's injury appears to be the tragic end for what had already been an unfortunate season for the fifth-year corner. Jackson struggled in four appearances this year, allowing an abysmal 149.3 passer rating on throws in his direction.

Jackson joined the Chargers on a massive five-year, $82.5 million deal earlier this year. Before that, he was a standout with the New England Patriots, nabbing 25 interceptions and breaking up 88 passes over four seasons. He had evidently had issues transitioning from the Patriots' man-coverage scheme to a more zone-based approach with the Chargers.
