Danario Alexander devoted months to knee rehab, working to return from an August injury as soon as possible.
It won't happen as soon as first hoped.
The Chargers wide receiver recently underwent additional surgery to repair the right knee injury that ended his 2013 season, sources said. The revision ACL surgery, performed in January as a follow-up to the primary reconstruction done in August, delays the original timetable for the impending free agent's return to football activities.
It doesn't look likely that Alexander will be healthy to start the 2014 season. It's a shame too -- he and Keenan Allen would have made a dangerous duo for the Chargers. He was outstanding down the stretch in 2012.
