    Chargers defensive tackle Brandon Mebane missed four games in the regular season and he was away from the team again last week to be with his newborn daughter after she was diagnosed with a heart condition.

    Makenna Mebaneís battle with that condition ended when she died last Thursday. Mebane made the announcement, via Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times, from the teamís facility on Wednesday.

    Head coach Anthony Lynn had said earlier in the day that the expectation was that Mebane would take part in practice on Wednesday and Mebane said that he plans to play against the Patriots on Sunday.

    Our condolences go out to Mebane and his family on their loss.

          Terrible news. Best of wishes to Brandon and his family.
          Moving to LA is not a good business decision, it’s a death sentence.

            Condolences to Brandon and family. I do hope that he plays well for his passed daughter, if just to relieve some of his pain.

                                        Unfortunately I have experienced the loss of a child. My 3 year old son passed away on July 22nd, 2017. It is a tough road for sure. His name was Trey. He was born with congenital heart defects. Had numerous surgeries throughout his short life. My wife,ex wife now, and I adopted him when he was born. His biological parents were drinking and doing drugs during her pregnancy with him. 5 days old and he had his first heart surgery. This was all being done at Childrens in Omaha. Many days standing in his room while just staring out at the cars driving by. Very helpless feeling, not being able to do anything. Trey was a fighter though. I'll always be proud of the time I got to spend with him, but it will never be enough.

                                        My heart goes out to Brandon. He is going to have a long road ahead of him. All I can say is, lean on your family and friends. That is what has kept me going. God be with you Brandon.
