Denzel Perryman could make his 2017 debut this weekend. Chargers coach Anthony Lynn told reporters today that the linebacker is expected to play this Sunday against the Jaguars (via team’s Twitter). Perryman has been on the injured reserve since September as he recovered from ankle surgery, although he did start practicing with the team several weeks ago.

The linebacker will surely be a welcome addition to the Chargers defense, as the former second-rounder has been one of the organization’s most productive players over the past two years.
