Chargers DT Brandon Mebane returns to team after death of newborn daughter

Los Angeles Chargers defensive tackle Brandon Mebane is returning to the team this week with a heavy heart.

Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reported shortly after that Mebane’s daughter died.

At the beginning of the season Mebane said he traveled to Nebraska on Mondays to see them, then returned to Los Angeles on Tuesday nights.

She was initially doing fine, he said, but doctors found she also had Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NES), which affects the intestines of premature infants.

Mebane told USA Tday for a Dec. 21 story that Chargers owner Dean Spanos let him use his private plane to get there for the surgery.

Makenna has been in the NICU and Mebane decided to stay with his wife and their children in Nebraska for four games between November and December.
