Charger Eric Weddle spoke of his disappointment about management decisions and hope for a contract extension still to come.

The San Diego Chargers fined safety Eric Weddle $10,000 and placed him on the injured reserve with a groin injury Monday, ending his season and possibly career with the team.

The team fined him staying out at halftime while watching his daughter perform at halftime in a program put on by the team’s cheerleading team during the game against the Miami Dolphins on Dec. 20.

Weddle did not ask for permission to watch his daughter perform, according to ESPN.  He had been fined  after the game, but the reasoning behind the fine was released Monday by his agent David Canter.

Also on Monday, the team placed him on the injured reserve, and according to Canter, it was against Weddle’s wishes. He will not be traveling to Denver for this Sunday’s game against the Broncos.

Before the season, the team decided not to extend Weddle’s contract, which expires after this season, and Canter said it would be Weddle’s last year with the team.

He has played nine seasons with the team and has been to three Pro Bowls and was a first-team All-Pro in 2011 and 2014.
