Chargers place Stephen Cooper on IR

Stephen Cooper, Javarris James AP

He signed a new contract with the Chargers 10 days ago.  But after Stephen Cooper suffered a torn biceps, which was expected to require two-to-three months to heal, the team opted not to wait.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Cooper has been placed on injured reserve.  Acee thinks that, with the move, Cooper’s career with the Chargers is over.

Undrafted out of Maine in 2003, Cooper has played only for the Chargers.

    He’s 32 years old. At least he got one more $810,000 check on his way out the NFL.

    Guess that’s how raider “fans” think the only way they can win is have an entire team on IR.

    I really liked Cooper and hoping he’d come help Mouton and Butler. Hopefully he stays on as an assistant LB coach.

    Good luck Cooper. I hated to see you beat on my team but that’s no way to go out. A well respected get well soon to a good story.

    You do Raider CEO Amy Trask proud. No stereotyping needed here.

    Coop is a good player. Hope he makes a full recovery.
