The San Diego Chargers places a couple of players onto the IR list today. Steve Williams and Byron Jerideau were placed on IR and the team is a little closer to getting to that 75 man roster. Williams had a torn pectoral muscle and Jerideau had a shoulder injury. Both players will not be available for the team this season. They will get back at it during training camp next year and fight for those roster spots again.

The Chargers also placed Melvin Ingram on the PUP list. He will not be available to play in the first 6 weeks of the season, but if he is able to recover quick enough from his ACL injury, he could come back onto the field this year. That would be a huge boost to the roster if he is able to come back at full speed.

    So that’s what happened to BJ. Hadn’t heard anything about him recently.

    Only three more players to cut by Tuesday, correct?

    • arnie

      I believe you are correct sir.

  • Rob Base

    I think they should ink 1 more NT just in case.

    • Gunnar Martin

      The perfect scenario would be to sign a guy that primarily plays defensive end, but can slide over to nose tackle. That would be GREAT.

      • Rob Base

        Good idea. I wonder who are the other 3 to get cut tomorrow.
