San Diego Chargers Place Larry English on Injured Reserve
Larry English’s disappointing career with the San Diego Chargers is likely over. On Tuesday, the team placed the oft-injured, unproductive outside linebacker on injured reserve due to a biceps injury, ending his season.
English was injured against the Denver Broncos on Sunday while doing something that he hadn’t done too much of in his five-year career – getting a sack. Following the play, English was seen favoring his right arm.
English, 27, never developed into the dominating pass rusher the Chargers envisioned when they drafted him 16th overall in the 2009 NFL Draft. In five seasons, he managed just 11 sacks and has missed nearly as many games due to injury as he’s played. English is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent following the season.
Though given a golden opportunity to get his NFL career moving, English failed to make a consistent impact. English’s 2.5 sacks this season ranks third on the team, which illustrates just how poor the Chargers have been rushing the passer this season and how much they were counting on English to step up. English became the starter when the team lost Dwight Freeney for the season back in late September. Freeney was brought in when Melvin Ingram went down with a torn ACL back in May.
Now down Freeney and English and without Ingram for at least a few more weeks, the Chargers will rely on the pass rush combination of Jarret Johnson (averages two sacks per season), Thomas Keiser (undrafted practice squad player), Tourek Williams (sixth-round rookie), and Adrian Robinson, who the team just signed and is now on his third team in the last three months.
Ingram, you can’t come back soon enough.
