The Chargers announced Friday that S Derwin James will miss an unspecified amount of time after suffering a stress fracture in the 5th metatarsal of his right foot. ESPN's Josina Anderson reports that James has talked to foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson and is "determining what next steps he wants to take." That likely means he's considering whether to have surgery, which would probably extend his return timeline. This will be a situation to watch concerning 1 of the NFL's top young defensive talents.
