COSTA MESA, Calif. — Los Angeles Chargers left tackle Rashawn Slater is expected to miss the remainder of the season after tearing his left biceps tendon in a 38-10 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Slater left the game in the third quarter after suffering the injury and was replaced by backup Storm Norton.
The 13th overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, Slater earned Pro Bowl recognition as a rookie last season.
Herbert’s rib cartilage was fractured in Week 2, and the injury is expected to linger indefinitely.
Defensively, uncertainty remains about the severity of a groin injury that edge rusher Joey Bosa suffered in the first quarter of the loss to the Jaguars.
And the status of cornerback J.C. Jackson, who signed a five-year, $82.5 million contract in free agency, also remains unclear. Jackson missed Week 1 after undergoing ankle surgery in late August. He returned for Week 2 and played 100% of the defensive snaps before landing on the inactive list against the Jaguars.
