Danario Alexander took advantage of a opportunity this week

In the NFL, when opportunity comes your way, it behooves you to catch it. That’s exactly what Danario Alexander did in Thursday night’s game for the San Diego Chargers. Pressed into a starting role when both Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal couldn’t suit up, Alexander, signed just last week, caught all three balls sent his way for a team-high 68 yards.

Meachem, still in the doghouse after dropping a sure handed  touchdown pass behind coverage the week before, may well get back on the field, but while he was gone, Norv Turner’s eyes were opened to a new weapon that could eat into his playing time. As Turner told the Sand Diego Union-Tribune, “Danario’s going to play… He’s going to be a big part of what we do. He earned that right.”
