Los Angeles Chargers cornerback J.C. Jackson underwent ankle surgery and will miss approximately two-to-four weeks, the team announced Tuesday.

Jackson signed a five-year, $82.5-million contract with the Chargers this offseason.

The 26-year-old went undrafted in 2018 but managed to earn a roster spot with the New England Patriots, where he spent the first four seasons of his pro career.

Noted for his ability to snag interceptions, Jackson worked his way into New England’s defensive back rotation and tallied 25 picks. He racked up 58 tackles, 23 passes defended, and eight interceptions in 2021 to earn his first Pro Bowl nod.

Jackson was among the notable acquisitions on defense, which also include Khalil Mack and Kyle Van Noy. He is projected to start at cornerback alongside Asante Samuel Jr. Los Angeles’ depth chart at the position also features Michael DavisTevaughn Campbell, and Bryce Callahan.
