Los Angeles Chargers LB Denzel Perryman out for season

Sports
Los Angeles Chargers starting linebacker Denzel Perryman reportedly will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury. Perryman left Sunday's victory over the Oakland Raiders early in the first quarter, and Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported Monday that Perryman suffered damage to his lateral collateral ligament (LCL). Rapoport also reported that Perryman needs surgery to repair an injured hamstring, and the two injuries will prevent Perryman from returning this season.

He has started all nine games and played on nearly 65 percent of the team's defensive snaps during the 2018 season. He has recorded 51 tackles, which is tied for second most on the tea...

Manchester City vs Manchester United: Citizens predicted line-up for the derby

possible XI Who will Pep Guardiola pick for the city's footballing showpiece? Manchester City have shown this past week they can blow teams away regardless of which eleven players start the game.

And there is little to separate Leroy Sane and Riyad Mahrez, both of whom scored when picked against Saints an...
