San Diego suffered a costly victory on Sunday night.
We told you that Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding has a torn ACL. Agent David Canter wrote on Twitter that defensive end Luis Castillo will miss the season.
Canter doesn’t represent Castillo, but he does represent two members of the Chargers defense. We contacted Canter for more information and he said Castillo has a fractured leg.
We haven’t been able to confirm the injury, but it meshes with other reports. Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune said Castillo’s injury did not look good and he left the stadium on a cart with a huge brace.
UPDATE: Acee confirms Castillo has a fractured tibia. The severity of the break will determine the recovery timeline. Sometimes players are able to return from that injury.
