Chargers Star CB Jackson To Miss Remainder Of Season With Knee Injury

Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Stanley announced on Monday that star cornerback J.C. Jackson will miss the remainder of the 2022-23 season with a ruptured patellar tendon, according NFL Network reporter Bridget Condon

Jackson, who joined the Chargers this past offseason on a five-year, $82.5 million deal, seemed to have dislocated his kneecap during his club's 37-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. 

The 26-year-old was still trying to find his groove on the field prior to his injury, as eyebrows were raised at the former All-Pro corner after he was benched for poor play on Monday Night Football against the Denver Broncos last week. 

The choice by Stanley however, may have been granted due to Jacksons multiple blown coverages throughout the season thus far and coach Stanley cited the particular decision on MNF as poor play. 

Jackson also had ankle surgery before the beginning of the 2022-23 season, which sidelined him for about a month. 

Adding to the Chargers injury report, they will also be without one of their main receivers, Mike Williams, who will miss "weeks" due to a sprained ankle, Stanley revealed in his Monday presser. 

The 28-year-old pass-catcher recorded seven receptions for 86 yards and one touchdown before suffering his right leg injury in the fourth quarter on Sunday.. 

The Chargers (4-3) head into a much needed bye week before facing off against the Atlanta Falcons on Nov. 6.
