The hits just keep on coming.

According to NFL insider Tom Pelissero, the Chargers have lost another player to a season-ending injury in wide receiver Jalen Guyton. Guyton left Sunday’s game late with what appeared to be a lower-body injury and tests on Monday confirmed that he did indeed tear his ACL.

The news comes just hours after it was reported that offensive tackle Rashawn Slater will miss the rest of the 2022 campaign with a torn biceps injury.

Guyton played a season-high 16 snaps against the Jaguars after playing a combined 13 snaps against the Raiders and Chiefs. He’ll end his fourth season with the Chargers with just a pair of catches for 64 yards.

Due to his limited usage, Guyton’s absence won’t change much in the way of the Chargers offense, but his speed was always a refreshing contrast to the possession-style of play from both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. DeAndre Carter likely steps in to a slightly larger role, as well.
