Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Branden Oliver missed much of last season on injured reserve, and the Chargers running back may be in danger of missing the 2016 season too after an injury suffered during today’s preseason game against Minnesota, one that video replay appears to reveal as an exploding Achilles tendon.

We hope for Oliver’s sake that’s not the case—we’ve liked him since his days at Buffalo—but the video is pretty gruesome. If news about his condition becomes available, we’ll update.



Timothy Burke is formerly Deadspin's Video Director.
