Liuget is feeling "much better" after he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in December, Micahel Gehlken of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Liuget had tallied 34 tackles (28 solo) and three sacks before his Week 13 injury against the Broncos. The 26-year-old, who signed a five-year extension prior to last year's training camp, reportedly weighed between 313-315 pounds throughout the 2015 season, but is expecting to cut his weight down to 295 by the season opener. With the Chargers selecting Joey Bosa with the third overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Liuget and Bosa could form an impressive duo on the defensive line capable of wreaking havoc on opposing offenses should both players stay healthy.

Liuget (foot) is expected to play Sunday against the Chiefs, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Liuget (foot) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Liuget was limited throughout practice this week, putting his status up in the air for Sunday's divisional contest. Although he's only posted 28 tackles and two sacks so far, Liuget's presence would surely be welcomed along the Chargers' defensive front, but he's likely to be a game-time decision for Sunday.

The Chargers are one of the weaker defenses against the run and will likely struggle further without Liuget in the lineup. He's expected to be replaced at defensive tackler by Ricardo Matthews.

Liuget and the Chargers came to terms on a five-year contract extension Tuesday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

With more than $50 million up for grabs through the 2020 season, Liuget has upheld his end of the bargain following his selection in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. A handful versus both the run and pass, the 25-year-old defensive end has yet to garner a Pro Bowl berth, despite racking up 149 tackles (112 solo), 17 sacks, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and one defensive touchdown while starting every game the past three seasons.

Liuget registered a career-best 57 tackles (45 solo) and two forced fumbles to go with 4.5 sacks last season, which followed a 2013 campaign that he played with a torn labrum. Overall, the 2011 first-round selection has appeared in 61 of 64 possible games since entering the league, emerging as the Chargers' most utilized defensive lineman along the way.
