Michael Gehlken of the Union-Tribune San Diego reports that Chargers receiver Robert Meachem suffered a possible injury in Wednesday night’s training camp practice. Per Gehlken, the injury was to Meachem’s right leg, and possibly his right knee.
Meachem has had right knee problems since his rookie year in New Orleans. He had the same knee scoped this past offseason.
Gehlken reports Meachem was able to walk off the field on his own power Wednesday night, which is a good sign. Coach Norv Turner stated in a post-practice presser that he doesn’t believe Meachem’s injury was anything serious, allowing that he still needs to speak to the Chargers’ head athletic trainer.
At this point, the injury sounds like no more than a tweak.
The Chargers signed Meachem to a four-year, $25.9 million contract in March.
