Lynn and the Chargers still seem confident the Pro Bowl running back will suit up for Sunday's AFC Divisional Round matchup with the New England Patriots, though.

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.

"No matter where I am, I still think about her", Mebane said of Makenna.

The Patriots have employed the "Everything We Got" mantra for their postseason run, and they'll need all hands on deck against Philip Rivers and Co.

Knicks and Kings Discussing Enes Kanter-Zach Randolph Trade
Randolph, 37, hasn't played for the Kings this season and probably wouldn't suit up for the Knicks if the Kings trade him. Kanter is on an expiring $18.6 million contract, while Randolph's is worth $11.6 million, northjersey.com noted.

"We're doing pretty good", he said of his family. Still thankful (for having her in our life). "It's still painful. I thank God every day and still pray".

Mebane is now in his third season with the Chargers where he is one of the captain's on defense.

The defensive tackle had missed four games this season so he could be with his daughter who was receiving treatment. He played the last two games of the regular season, but missed Los Angeles' playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens.
