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.
