With Ronnie Hillman the only healthy running back on the roster, the San Diego Chargers made a trio of moves to bolster the position. First, they officially placed Kenneth Farrow on Injured Reserve after he suffered a shoulder injury in Saturday's game in Cleveland. The Bolts also promoted Andre Williams to the active roster in his place while bringing back Gus Johnson to the practice squad.
A 5-9, 219-pound undrafted rookie out of Houston, Farrow was the Chargers second leading rusher on the season. He carried the rock 60 times for 192 yards while catching 13 passes for another 70. Farrow also suffered an injury to the same shoulder in the preseason that kept him out almost a month.
Williams returns to the 53-man roster, where he spent the first two weeks after being claimed off waivers from the New York Giants prior to the start of the season. The physical 5-11, 230-pound rusher carried the ball 305 times for 978 yards and eight touchdowns along with 19 receptions for 137 yards over two seasons in New York.
Meanwhile, Johnson returns to the Bolts after a short stint toward the end of the preseason. The 5-10, 215-pound product out of Stephen F. Austin St. was signed a few days before the finale against the San Francisco 49ers, carrying the ball nine times for 28 yards plus a pair of catches in the contest. Johnson spent time on the Atlanta Falcons practice squad earlier this year as well.
