On Wednesday morning, it was reported by both Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport that Derwin James’ surgery to repair his meniscus yesterday was successful and the Chargers will go ahead and place James on the season-ending IR.

He’s expected to make a full recovery in time for the 2021 season.

This bit of news is exactly news as we’ve all been expecting it for the last 48 hours. Heck, I think a part of all of us felt that, even when there was a reported chance for James to only miss 4-6 weeks, he wasn’t going to see the field in 2020. That’s been the life of Chargers fans for quite some time now.

Season-ending injuries are about as commonplace among this organization as anything else. But, unlike last season, the Chargers are prepared to mitigate this loss. The fix may not be a single player, but they’ve got the numbers to fill the void all the same.

Week one seriously can’t get here soon enough.
