The San Diego Chargers won't be getting Malcom Floyd or Dwight Freeney back this season, both players have been place on injured reserved, the team announced on Tuesday.

In his first season with the Chargers, Freeney played in San Diego's first four games before suffering a torn quad in the second quarter against the Cowboys on Sunday. The 33-year-old Freeney will have surgery on the quad with hopes of returning in 2014. Freeney signed a two-year deal with the Chargers in May, after spending the first 11 seasons of his career with Indianapolis.

Putting Floyd on IR wasn't an unexpected move in San Diego. The ninth-year receiver injured his neck in Week 2 against the Eagles and had to be carted off the field. Floyd isn't expected to have to undergo surgery on his neck, according to FoxSports.com.

Floyd will finish his 2013 season with six catches for 149 yards. The 32-year-old receiver had five catches for 102 yards against the Eagles before suffering the neck injury.

To fill the two open spots on the roster, the Chargers signed wide receiver Lavelle Hawkins and promoted linebacker Thomas Keiser from the practice squad.
