The optimistic chargers Adrian Phillips will return from a broken arm


Anthony Lynn labeled his “enormous” flexibility as a “coach on the field” and asked him “as captain of that secondary school.” T

The Chargers lost all that Sunday when Adrian Phillips had suffered a broken arm right hand.

The All-Pro player on special teams in 2018, Phillips will be put on an injured reserve and will therefore lose at least the other eight weeks.

Lynn said that he believes Phillips will be able to return at some point this season.

The loss means that three of its seven Bowlers Pro have been missing from the last seasons, and the others as Derwin James (foot) and Melvin Gordon (contract retention).

They have now started seven dealing with injuries that protect them games.

This group includes Russell's fight Okung (blood clots), a firm end to Hunter Hunter (knee), retrieving Michael Davis (garden) and the kick Michael Badgley (groin).

Badgley is not considered to be returning.

“We are going to compete every single week,” Lynn said. “That's one thing we will do. We try to get those people healthy and maybe get them back later. ”

Under the rules of the series, only two players can return after putting them on IR. These Bears are saving one of those spots for James. The other one would probably go to Phillips, depending on how he gets this injury.

He was injured in Detroit's fourth quarter of the Bears' 13-10 loss. Later in the same series, the Lions scored the winning win on a 31-yard reception at Kenny Golladay.

Phillips started the first two games on strong safety instead of James. On Sunday he was entrusted with calling the protective signs.

Following the departure of Phillips, free safety began with Rayshawn Jenkins and Jaylen Watkins entering free safety.

Lynn said that this is not how the Chargers will go forward with their Sunday match against Houston in Dignity Health Sports Park.

“We are looking at different combinations to see what is best for our staff,” he explained, “He will do the best for our defense, I can tell you.” T

Nickel corner Desmond King has also played safety. Roderic Teamer's un drafted rookie is an option, Lynn said, while Taemer was dealing with a safety problem.

The Bears took advantage of the second round of Nasir Adderley's free safety in April. However, Adderley lost most of the training camp and has only played one defense to date.

“There's a lot he doesn't know,” Lynn said about the rookie. “When the season goes on, it's hard to get a player to get caught.”

These injuries after the Chargers take a conservative approach through many beginners to hold during the season, a tactic that they used to try to keep their most important players healthy.

“Unfortunately, when you demolished the cracked fibers and barns, I don't know anything you can do to avoid this,” Lynn said. “It's just part of the game. These are severe injuries. ”

Lynn lost the view that the Bears are in a good position because of all missing players.

“We have a lot now,” he said. “I like to say that we need everything we want.”

But he admitted that there is a toll that can be lost as much as possible.

“It creates a lack of depth,” Lynn said. “We cannot continue down this road. Right now, we are pretty thin at certain locations. ”

Austin Ekeler is worried

Among the mistakes that the Chargers defended when they lost the Lions, Austin Ekeler's goal-line in the third quarter was well ahead.

The play marked a fourth regular career season. Ekeler also hit the target line in the foreground.

“It's a worry because you don't like to see patterns,” Lynn said. “But Austin has a football player. He is a smart young man. We must learn from our mistakes.

“Unfortunately this is sometimes a process. You have to go through the growing pains when you are a young player. But I believe he will learn from him and be better back because of him. ”

Also, Ekeler managed another evening which was very false for the Bears, a 20-17 loss at Jacksonville in November 2017.

Lynn said that Sunday was about remembering that game and the loss of Chargers ’23 -22 for Denver last season.

“For whatever reason, these types of games show once a year,” he said. “I don't like it, and my job, when I see it happening, is to stop it. That was not done (Sunday). ”

Penalty problems

The Chargers lost two backs against Detroit on annulled plays with penalties, a call to the great receiver Dontrelle Inman and an illegal block on tackling Sam Tevi.

Immediately after the game, Lynn was asked about the legitimacy of the plaintiffs.

“I didn't get a good eye on them,” he said. “The guys made upstairs. They had their own opinion about these two calls. ”

Lynn acknowledged on Monday that the two penalties had occurred, but he said they did not want flags.

“I can't argue with the official about that,” he said about the call involving Tevi. “His hands were on his back. Did he interfere with the play? Ref. But the defendant had his hands back. ”

Of Inman's play, he said, “You hate to see it, but you can't argue with the officer because it was there.” T
