Los Angeles Chargers CB Casey Hayward exits game with apparent leg injury

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Detroit Lions Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Chargers defense simply cannot seem to stay healthy. The defensive backfield, in particular, has had its depth badly tested. Casey Hayward, the team’s best cornerback by far, has now exited the game. Hayward was able to walk off the field under his own power and his immediate replacement is Brandon Facyson, who you might remember as the guy who got absolutely roasted when he was forced into action earlier this season. According to David Chao, the injury may be a calf strain.

UPDATE: Casey Hayward has returned to the field.
