Chargers safety Derwin James has not been able to do everything on the practice field this offseason as he continues to recover from a shoulder injury.

Coach Brandon Staley revealed today that James had labrum surgery after the season and that the team is holding him out of some drills to keep him healthy.

James suffered a separated shoulder early in the season but continued to play through it, and the Chargers do not seem overly concerned about the injury.

The Chargers’ first-round pick in 2018, James is heading into the fifth and final year of his rookie contract. When healthy James is one of the top safeties in the NFL, but he missed most of the 2019 season and all of the 2020 season with injuries.

  1. Does anyone know if Derwin is related to Sequan Barkley? Those two dudes, lots of promise and hype, but absent on most Sunday’s.

  2. Thigh bone connected to the hip bone
    Hip bone connected to the back bone
    Back bone connected to the shoulder bone
    Shoulder bone connected to the shoulder labrum.

  3. The difference between Saquan Barkley and Derwin is that Derwin played very successfully through his injury and made the Pro Bowl. He’s also one of the best safeties in the league. The Giants are still waiting for Barkley to do something. All that potential and he’s constantly in the training room. If he doesn’t do something this year he’ll be released.
