More knee problems for Danario Alexander

When he’s been well, Danario Alexander has been a promising wide receiver.

That hasn’t been often enough, and it might not be the case for some time.

According to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports, Alexander has required multiple surgeries on his right knee because of an infection, which could put his status for 2014 in doubt.

The Chargers weren’t expected to bring him back after a second ACL reconstruction in January, the latest in a long line of knee problems (five surgeries on his left knee before he entered the league).

But he needed a follow-up surgery and antibiotics to clear up the latest problem, which created some doubt as to when he might be ready to play.

    I have such empathy for Danario. Talent and work ethic to be an elite WR and a really good person too. It’s not fair.

    Amazing Talent.
    Bad knees.

    How about those Bolts losing their number one and two wideouts and Rivers still has a career year. Next season looks promising!

    What a shame. He has a lot of talent and he and Rivers work very well together.

    It’s time to consider playing without knees.

    That has to be incredibly frustrating knowing you have the ability but your body isn’t holding up.

    After all of those procedures, is it even correct to refer to them as knees at this point?

    Damn dude….that’s tough….

    Dakneerio? Or is that joke only OK for RG3?

    If it’s MRSA it’s just antibiotics and then he should have surgery, not a big deal.

    Either Buddy Nix is a genius or the Bills training staff is top-notch in the NFL…

    Buffalo brought this kid in right before San Diego signed him, and they let him go without an offer because they were afraid his knees wouldn’t hold up…well, looks like they hit the nail on the head. That’s sad.

    The kid has a ton of talent.

    And it ticks me off that someone like him is losing his opportunity because of something out of his control…Yet someone like Davone Bess or Titus Young just decide to poop away a career in the NFL.

    That really makes me mad.

    This just in…

    I just had lunch with John Titor and the news is not so good for the S.D. Chokers. He informed me that (up to year 2046) you guys will never win a Superbowl…Then I turned to him and said, “okay whatever, tell me something about the future that I don’t already know. LOL!!!

    Just cut him already and give his salary to someone who can earn it.
