Chargers’ JC Jackson’s knee injury Reportedly Diagnosed as Dislocated Kneecap

The Los Angeles Chargers’ cornerback JC Jackson is not having his best time as he keeps getting off the field with injuries. Just two weeks before the 2022 season began, Jackson underwent ankle surgery, and as a result, he missed the team’s first three games. He has 15 tackles, two passes defended, and no interceptions in his five games so far this season. 

Unfortunately, during Sunday’s 37-23 loss against the Seattle Seahawks, Jackson dislocated his kneecap. He will get an MRI to find out how bad the injury he got from the dislocation is, but head coach Brandon Staley has already said that he thinks it is “significant one.” 

On Sunday, the 26-year-old injured his knee late in the second quarter while attempting to stop Geno Smith’s 23-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Marquise Goodwin. He appeared to have a non-contact injury to his right knee. He was immediately examined by the trainers and eventually carted off the field with an air cast on his right leg and a towel draped over his head.

It is still unclear how long he will be sidelined. With Jackson gone, it will be a big challenge for the franchise to find his immediate replacement. At this crucial moment for the team, rookie cornerbacks Deane Leonard and Ja’Sir Taylor and veteran Michael Davis will need to step up to fill in Jackson’s absence while Asante Samuel Jr. and Bryce Callahan lead the team.

The chargers are, however, going through a rough patch as they brought in Jackson with the hope he could bring his play-making capabilities. But regrettably the star is down for indefinite period with yet another injury.
