San Diego Chargers impending free-agent WR Danario Alexander (knee) has needed multiple surgeries on his right knee because of an infection that occurred after he underwent a second surgery on his torn anterior cruciate ligament. It is not known if Alexander will be able to play in 2014.
Huddle Up: No surprise that the oft-injured Alexander has required extra attention. Even if he does return to action in the near future he has about as big, bright, and bold of an injury red flag as a player could have.

The San Diego Chargers have waived injured WR Danario Alexander (knee). Alexander will be placed on the Injured Reserve list if he clears waivers.
Huddle Up: Alexander tore is ACL and is out for the year. If a team puts in a waiver claim on him it would have to pay Alexander $1.323 million to sit out this season and then he'll be a free agent in 2014. More than likely he'll remain in San Diego.

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Danario Alexander (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in practice Tuesday, Aug. 6.
Huddle Up: Knee issues continue to plague Alexander, who only has played 28 games in 3 seasons. As the Bolts' most productive WR over the second half of the season, Alexander was projected to start along with vet Malcom Floyd, but that spot now figures to go to either Vincent Brown, Robert Meachem or rookie Keenan Allen.

San Diego Chargers WR Danario Alexander (leg) left practice early Thursday, July 25, to receive treatment on a leg injury. Alexander was able to return to practice after the treatment.
Huddle Up: This particular issue doesn't sound like a big deal in itself, but it's a subtle reminder that Alexander has dealt with knee and leg injuries since his college days and never has played in more than 10 games in any of his 3 NFL seasons.

San Diego Chargers WR Danario Alexander looked fluid in making back-shoulder catches in practice Monday, May 20. He claims he's at full speed, a contrast to his injured May practices last year with the St. Louis Rams.
Huddle Up: Alexander has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career, but in those limited stretches of good health he's been productive. The Chargers are looking for a go-to receiver, so if Alexander can stay healthy he's the prime candidate for the job.

The San Diego Chargers signed free-agent WR Danario Alexander to a one-year deal Thursday, April 25. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Alexander was a bright spot in the team's 3-5 second half of the season, leading the Chargers in receiving with 34 catches for 597 yards and 7 TDs over the final 8 games. His 3-year career, though, has been dotted with injuries, particularly knee issues, so bringing him back on a 1-year deal minimizes the risk.
