Chargers Place Three on Reserve
The San Diego Chargers made three additional roster moves on Monday.
Cornerback Steve Williams (pectoral) from California-Berkeley and defensive tackle Byron Jerideau (shoulder) from South Carolina were placed on Reserve-Injured. Williams is a fifth-round selection this year and Jerideau is a rookie free agent.
Linebacker Melvin Ingram (knee) was placed on Reserve-Physically Unable to Perform (PUP). The move means Ingram, the team’s first-round choice in 2012, will miss at least the first six weeks of the season. He is eligible to begin practicing any time after Week 6 through Week 11, and the team will have a 21-day window from the day he begins practicing to either add him to the active roster or have him remain on Reserve-PUP through the end of the season.
With the addition of cornerback Richard Marshall, the Chargers now list 78 players on the roster. The roster needs to be down to 75 players by 1:00 p.m. PT Tuesday and down to 53 players by 3:00 p.m. PT Saturday, Aug. 31. Read
