CB - LAC - IR
Week 13 Outlook
JC Jackson is having surgery today to repair his patellar tendon.
The recovery typically takes 8-9 months, so that could leave him sidelined till training camp next offseason. He had been struggling, but it is still a blow to the Chargers secondary.
J.C. Jackson (knee) is expected to miss the remainder of this season with a ruptured patellar tendon.
Jackson sustained a knee injury during Sunday's loss to Seattle, and it has now been diagnosed as a ruptured patellar tendon, which will knock him out for the rest of the season. He hadn't been playing very well for the Chargers so far this year, but he was a big free-agent acquisition for them in the off-season and they had optimism he would turn it around. The team will need second-year star Asante Samuel Jr. to step up as the top cornerback for this defense moving forward.
J.C. Jackson suffered a dislocated kneecap during the Chargers' Week 7 loss to the Seahawks.
Jackson needed to have an air cast put on to stabilize the knee prior to being removed from the field on Sunday. It is a blow to a Chargers' secondary that has been playing poorly all season, though $82.5 million Jackson has been a liability in his own right. He is obviously looking at an extended absence and a shutdown for the season cannot be ruled out.
J.C. Jackson was carted off with an air cast on his leg after a non-contact injury.
Jackson’s injury is being classified as a knee injury by the team, who have already ruled him out for the remainder of the game. Jackson will likely miss a considerable amount of time, but the team should clarify the nature of his injury soon. We will update you here once more information is available.
J.C. Jackson was limited at Chargers practice on Wednesday.
Jackson was sidelined in Week 3, so it seems like he has a chance to return this weekend barring any setbacks. His return would be huge to an already banged up Chargers defense.
