Chargers LB Drue Tranquill could miss game vs. Ravens

·1 min read

The Chargers already lost Kenneth Murray to an injury, and now the team could be without another one of their starting linebackers.

Drue Tranquill is dealing with a pec injury he sustained in last Sunday’s victory over the Browns, and his status for this weekend’s matchup against the Ravens is up in the air.

Following practice on Wednesday, head coach Brandon Staley said the team is still gathering information, but the expectation is that it’s “nothing long term.”

Tranquill showed up on the practice report as a non-participant.

Since taking over as a full-time starter, he and Kyzir White have been integral pieces in the middle of the defense.

Through five games, Tranquill has 28 tackles, three tackles for loss, and two quarterback hits.

If he cannot go, rookie Nick Niemann would likely receive an extended amount of playing time. Niemann has yet to log a defensive snap.

We will continue to monitor the status of Tranquill as the week goes on.
