Derwin James placed on IR

The Chargers have officially placed injured second-year safety Derwin James on injured reserve. He will not be eligible to return until mid season.

Fantasy Impact

James underwent foot surgery on August 22nd, a procedure with an expected recovery time of 3-4 months. He was selected first-team All-Pro as a rookie and was expected to be a key piece of the Chargers defense again. Safety Jaylen Watkins was brought back to fill the roster spot.

Derwin James expected to miss three to four months

Cornerback Derwin James is expected to be out for three to four months for the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

It was originally thought that James would only miss up to a maximum of three months, after he suffered a stress fracture in his right foot last week but unfortunately, that has now changed. Adam Schefter on Twitter has reported that James had bent a screw that was placed in his foot during his freshman year at Florida State. As a result, he will need to have this removed during his surgery which is scheduled for this Thursday. With a lengthy recovery ahead for the star corner, fellow teammate Adrian Phillips will take James' spot for the time being.

Derwin James may not return in 2019

Chargers HC Anthony Lynn told the press that he is unsure whether or not S Derwin James (foot) will return in 2019.

Fantasy Impact

James' recovery timeline is uncertain. While the minimum time he is expected to miss is roughly six weeks, he could ultimately open the year on the PUP list and at worse miss the season in its entirety. Once viewed a legit Super Bowl contender, the Chargers are now in danger of opening the new season without Melvin Gordon and James, arguably their best players on either side of the ball.

Derwin James will be out for a significant amount of time

The Los Angeles Chargers suffered a huge blow during Thursday's practice when Derwin James injured his foot. He was seen on Friday wearing a boot.

Fantasy Impact

The Chargers have yet to set a fixed timeline on when James can return to the field, but it does not look too promising that he will be back for the immediate future any time soon. James had a phenomenal rookie season in 2018 recording 3.5 sacks and 105 combined tackles. The Chargers can't afford to lose James for too long and will continue to monitor his situation in the coming days.
