Chargers WR Alexander out for year with torn ACL

Chargers wide receiver Danario Alexander tore the anterior
cruciate ligament in his right knee in practice Tuesday and will be
lost for the season.

Alexander, who has a history of knee injuries, was acquired
midway through last season and caught 37 passes for 658 yards and
seven touchdowns in the final nine games.

Alexander’s injury could help Robert Meachem see more playing
time. Meachem, due a guaranteed $5 million, rarely saw the field
after dropping a potential touchdown pass in a 7-6 loss at
Cleveland last season.
