Broken fibula ends season for Chargers’ Woodhead

San Diego, CA ( – San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy
announced Monday that running back Danny Woodhead will miss the rest of the
season with a broken fibula.

Woodhead was carted off the field in the first quarter of Sunday’s 22-10 win
at Buffalo. His right leg twisted awkwardly underneath him when he was
tackled at the end of a 1-yard carry less than 3 1/2 minutes into the game.

Woodhead signed a two-year contract extension prior to training camp after
setting career highs in receptions (76), receiving yards (605) and receiving
touchdowns (six) last season with the Chargers. He also added 429 yards and
two scores on 106 carries.
