Chargers safety Jahleel Addae fractured his left collarbone in the team’s 38-14 win over the Jaguars on Sunday, reports Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune (Twitter link). Addae will likely undergo surgery, which would require a four- to six-week recovery period.
Addae has been with the Chargers since 2013, when the club signed him as an undrafted free agent from Central Michigan. After combining for 27 appearances and seven starts in his first two years, Addae picked up 12 of a possible 13 starts last season and amassed a career-high 65 tackles. He added another 11 during the Bolts’ first two games this season before departing in the fourth quarter Sunday.
With Addae set to miss the next several weeks, San Diego could turn to in-house options Dexter McCoil, Darrell Stuckey or Adrian Phillips in his absence. McCoil and Stuckey took the field in the Chargers’ first two games, but Phillips has been inactive thus far.
