Mebane revealed that his newborn daughter, Makenna, who was born a month earlier than expected on Nov. 12, is dealing with a stomach illness called necrotizing enterocolitis and she also has a heart defect called trisomy 13.
I'm still thankful, and I thank God every day, we are taking it one day at a time.
Chargers coach Anthony Lynn had said earlier in the day that Brandon Mebane would take part in practice on Wednesday and Mebane said that he plans to play against the Patriots in the Divisional Round on Sunday.
All our thoughts and condolences go out to Mebane and his family on their loss.
