Chargers inside linebacker Jonas Mouton suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee on Thursday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reported today.

The injury will end Mouton’s season, Gehlken reported. Mouton was practicing as a backup in camp, the Union-Tribune said.

The 25-year-old Mouton appeared in three games as a reserve in 2012. A second-round pick out of Michigan in 2011, Mouton (6-2, 240) missed most of his rookie season with a shoulder injury.

UPDATE 8:20 p.m. EST: Chargers coach Mike McCoy provided confirmation of Mouton’s ACL tear, per the club’s official Twitter feed.

  1. Another AJ Smith-inspired pick and he was injured all last year too. Nothing is more exciting than to watch your draft picks continually develop their game on crutches

  2. Ryan Mathews was a Pro Bowler in his second season. No comparison to Mouton, who will have played like 5 downs in his first three seasons. I can see the Bolts giving Mouton an injury settlement and cutting our losses. I feel for Mouton. Hell of a way to start your NFL career.

    Mathews can’t tie his shoes without breaking a scapula. Everyone knows the Pro Bowl is a joke, but fans like humb0lt play the Pro Bowl card every chance they get.

  4. What are they feeding these guys at training camp? Seems every time I turn around another member of my beloved Chargers is hurt and out for the season. Is this a Strength and Conditioning Coach thing? Sadly now I am hoping for only one wish, a sweep of the Raiders. Looks like another wish shot to hell.
    But there is still hope.

  5. I hate to see this with any player – especially a kid on the cusp of showing he belongs

    After his well deserved pity party I hope he bucks up, has the right attitude about the ACL repair and rehab, and comes back more determined than ever

    Not a Chargers fan by any stretch – but I’m rooting for this guy from here on out

  6. Ryan Mathews was never a Pro Bowler. Dream on Dolt fan. He had two good pre season games,that’s it. He’s a bust like this linebacker nobody ever heard of. Lol

  7. This new coach is tearing players up… Chargers will be signing a lot of scrubs to fill out the roster this year.
