  • Chargers' Otito Ogbonnia: Moved to IR

    The Chargers placed Ogbonnia (kneecap) on injured reserve Wednesday.

    Ogbonnia was officially placed on IR after exiting Sunday's loss to the 49ers with a ruptured left patellar tendon, which will leave him sidelined for the remainder of the season. While the rookie defensive tackle primarily played a reserve role over seven games this season, his injury comes at the worst possible time, as veteran defensive lineman Christian Covington (pectoral) is also set to miss at least the next four weeks while on IR. As a result, the Chargers signed Tyeler Davison off the Browns' practice squad Wednesday to help provide depth behind likely starting nose tackle Breiden Fehoko moving forward.

  • Chargers' Otito Ogbonnia: Dealing with ruptured patellar

    Chargers coach Brandon Staley said that Ogbonnia has a ruptured patellar tendon and is set to miss the remainder of the season, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Ogbonnia was previously expected to sit out the rest of the season due to a quad injury suffered during Sunday's loss to the 49ers. However, it appears he actually ruptured his left patellar tendon, leaving him with a 6-to-12-month recovery based on the usual timetable for such injuries. Ogbonnia will finish his rookie season campaign with 14 tackles and 133 defensive snaps played, and he'll now shift his focus to returning by the start of the 2023 season.

  • Chargers' Otito Ogbonnia: Expected to be out for season

    Ogbonnia is expected to miss the remainder of the 2022 campaign due to a quadriceps injury, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    Ogbonnia had to be carted off the field during Sunday's matchup against the 49ers due to what was believed to be a knee injury. However, the rookie has since been diagnosed with a quad injury and will likely miss the remainder of the season. In his absence, Sebastian Joseph-Day and Jeremiah Attaochu are candidates for increased playing time.

  • Chargers' Otito Ogbonnia: Questionable to return

    Ogbonnia is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the 49ers due to a left knee injury.

    Ogbonnia went down in the first quarter of Sunday's matchup and was unable to put much weight on his left leg as he was helped off the field. He was later carted to the locker room, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return to the game. If he's unavailable down the stretch, Sebastian Joseph-Day and Jeremiah Attaochu should see increased playing time.

  • Chargers' Otito Ogbonnia: Moves to Los Angeles

    The Chargers selected Ogbonnia in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 160th overall.

    The Chargers are betting on Ogbonnia's size (6-foot-4, 323 pounds) making him a quality run stopper, but the UCLA product tended to play too upright at the line of scrimmage to make much of an impact in that regard during his college career. Expect the fifth-round pick to be a rotational piece in the interior defensive line along with offseason free-agent additions Sebastian Joseph-Day and Austin Johnson.
