Derwin James out for a significant time

Recommended Posts

Chargers All Pro safety Derwin James suffered a stress fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his right foot.  Some know it as the "Jones" fracture, but I also know it as what Dr. Chao calls it the Wide receiver fracture as Dez Bryant, Sammy Watkins, Julio Jones, and Julian Edelman (maybe more) suffered the same.


If not treated surgically, this could be season ending.  If surgically repaired, James could possibly return sometime before or around mid season. However, experience with all of the above athletes also shows a quick return to play also exposes the player to re-fracture and a necessary second surgery.

That really wasn't a surprise (at least to me), surgery for James.  Yet another no surprise, they may try to get him back in ASAP (minimum just after mid season or so).  However, at some future time not too long after, may well have a good chance to re-fracture it again... just like those mentioned above and, most recently, Greg Olsen. Feel a little bad for the guy.
