J.C. Jackson Done for Year With Ruptured Patellar
NFL Week 7 - The Los Angeles Chargers will be without cornerback J.C. Jackson for the rest of the season. According to Chargers head coach Brandon Staley, Jackson ruptured his patellar tendon in Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Jackson was carted off the field on Sunday, with his knee placed in an air cast. He was diagnosed with a dislocated kneecap, but the injury required further testing to verify the extent of the injury.
The Los Angeles Chargers signed Jackson to a five-year, $82.5 million contract in March. Jackson's debut with the team was delayed after undergoing a voluntary surgery on his foot. In the four games Jackson appeared in prior to Week 7, he allowed a 73.7% completion percentage for 16.8 yards per target on 19 passes, including three touchdowns (via SIS).
