Adrian Phillips suffers broken arm

This is quickly becoming ridiculous for the Chargers.

After losing All-Pro safety Derwin James to injured reserve with a foot injury, they’ve now lost the guy who replaced him in the lineup.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Charger safety Adrian Phillips suffered a broken arm yesterday while trying to tackle Lions running back Kerryon Johnson.

He’ll miss some time, but the injury may not be season-ending.

Phillips made the All Pro team himself as a special teamer, so being without him will sting for a team with multiple injury issues.

  1. Another game another big Chargers injury. I am used to it. As long as they have Phil they will compete.

  2. I liked the protection Rivers was getting on his blind side. Not impressed by Virgil Green. Maybe he blocks o.k. Need to bring in Antonio Gates to lift team spirits and catch some tight end passes. The call on the last play, Rivers shot to the end zone, didn’t make sense. They should have gone mid-range where they were having success with a chance to tie with a field goal despite bad FG kicking performance. This team still has few fans.
