Chargers DL Brandon Mebane addresses infant daughter's death

11 January 2019

Makenna was born premature with trisomy 13, a defective heart condition.

Chargers defensive tackle Brandon Mebane plans to play against the Patriots on Sunday, even if he'll be doing so with a heavy heart.

"She just kept having bleeding from her stomach, and then they tried to feed her, it wasn't good for her liver", Mebane said, holding back tears.

Mebane's daughter, Makenna, was born with a rare chromosome disorder and died January 3 after spending time in a neonatal intensive care unit in Nebraska, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"We know how great of a team they are", Gordon said.

The Patriots' win streak comes on the heels of a shaky 2-3 SU run, and the team also has rewarded bettors with wins against the spread in just one of their past four outings. "I still pray. We're taking it one day at a time".

"No matter where I am, I still think about her", Mebane said of Makenna. This season, he has 40 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in 12 games.

The 33-year-old Mebane is in his third season with the Chargers.
