The following was written and submitted by wide receiver Danario Alexander.
First off, thanks for letting me write the blog this week. You fans have been great since I’ve been here. I love the love you all are showing me. That’s one of my favorite sayings, I love the love, and I want to go out there each Sunday and show my thanks for it. You all have embraced me. I’m happy I’ve been able to have a big impact on these games, and I want to keep it going.
It feels great to be back on the field again playing football, and feels even better to be playing it at a high level. I wish we would have won down in Tampa, but it always feels good to have a good game like that and I hope to be able to do it again, this time with a win.
Whenever I score a touchdown, I have my own little celebration making an X with my arms. You might have noticed it. A bunch of fans have asked me about it, and it started in St. Louis. I went on the radio one time and they gave me the nickname “DX” so that’s how it all got started. Now I flash it every time I have a big play or touchdown.
Before I signed with the Chargers I was busy training and getting healthy. I was down in Miami for a few weeks to get my hamstring right and work on my speed. Then I came back to St. Louis and just worked out. It was kind of a tough time, but in the end it all worked out for me because I ended up here in San Diego.
I haven’t had much of a chance to explore the city really. I spend most of my time at the facility, and when I’m done there, I usually just head straight home, sit down on the couch and watch some TV. I’m really into Breaking Bad and Shameless right now. I watch them on my Netflix. If you have any recommendations for what shows to watch next I’d love to hear them!
Well that about does it for me. Thanks again for embracing me the way you have. I love the love, so keep it coming and I’ll keep giving it out also.

Antwan Barnes missed last week’s game in Tampa Bay with a strained hamstring. The good news is that he returned to practice today in a limited fashion and feels he has a strong chance to play on Sunday.
Here’s what he had to say.
“I felt excellent today. I still have a bit more work to do, but I feel pretty good. It’s up to the coaches to decide if I’m good enough to go on Sunday, but I feel like I did well today. I’m going to leave it in their hands. I’ve had injuries like this numerous times, and this is the earliest I’ve ever come back from it. So I feel good.”
