Chargers Sign Remmers, Place Harris on IR
The San Diego Chargers made a number of transactions today, signing guard-tackle Mike Remmers off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad while placing tackle Mike Harris on the Reserve-Injured list with an ankle injury.
The team also added running back Kerwynn Williams, previously with the Colts, to the practice squad and released running back Mike Maysonet.
The 6-5, 303-pound Remmers originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Denver Broncos in May. He attended training camp with the Broncos and appeared in one preseason game before being waived on August 27. The 23-year old then joined Tampa Bay’s practice squad on September 10.. Originally a walk-on at Oregon State, Remmers quickly ascended to starter status. He started 44 games during his four years with the Beavers, including 37 in a row to finish his collegiate career. Remmers was a finalist for the Burlsworth Trophy as a senior, an award given each season to the nation's top player who began his career as a walk-on.
Harris injured his ankle during last Sunday’s game in Oakland. The second-year tackle started the last three games, including Week 3 at right tackle and Weeks 4-5 at left tackle.
Williams was initially the Colts seventh-round selection (230th overall) in the 2013 NFL draft out of Utah State. He appeared in one game this season, returning one kickoff for 28 yards. He was released from the Colts’ practice squad on Tuesday.
