Position Listing
Kyle Emanuel
No Updates
Melvin Gordon
Gordon carried the ball 22 times for 68 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Falcons. He also caught six of his seven targets for 53 yards and another touchdown.

After failing to score a touchdown last week, Gordon exploded for a three-touchdown performance against the Falcons Sunday. While his yards-per-carry (3.1) wasn't eye-popping, Gordon more than made up for it with his nose for the end zone, also doubling as an effective check-down option for Philip Rivers out of the backfield. Gordon continues to be touchdown machine, as he's racked up a total of 10 on the year after failing to find the end zone a single time during his rookie season. He'll face the vaunted Broncos defense next week.

Darrell Stuckey
Weddle (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union Tribune reports.

This seemed like a mere formality after Weddle was unable to practice Wednesday. Darrell Stuckey will likely see additional work at free safety in place of Weddle.

Denzel Perryman
Perryman recorded seven tackles, one interception and one and a half tackles for a loss in the win over the Falcons Sunday.

Perryman was a major factor in the come-from-behind win Sunday, picking up a critical interception late in the game to force overtime and then stuffing a key fourth-and-one situation in overtime to give the Chargers the ball, which they then converted into a game-winning field goal. Despite leaving the game multiple times to attend to his nagging shoulder injury, Perryman nearly led the team in tackles and was a disruptive force all afternoon. As long as he's able to play, Perryman looks like he could be a decent IDP option when the Chargers travel to take on the Broncos Sunday.

Shoulder - Questionable for Week 8 at Denver
Dwight Lowery
Lowery signed a three-year contract Wednesday with the Chargers, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Lowery set a career-high in interceptions (4) during his lone season with the Colts and was able to tally 76 tackles to boot. With the Chargers expecting veteran leader Eric Weddle to leave via free agency, Lowery is expected to take over his role at free safety alongside projected starter Jaheel Addae, although the team might not be done adding pieces to their secondary.

Andre Williams
Williams was released by the Chargers.

Williams was a healthy scratch in each of the Chargers' first two games. His release effectively clears room for the addition of TE Asante Cleveland from the team's practice squad and leaves San Diego with only two healthy running backs behind starter Melvin Gordon.

Nick Dzubnar
Dzubnar (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday, ESPN reports.

The special teams stud went down in Week 4 with a knee injury, but the specifics of which are unclear. DT Damion Square was activated to take his place on the Chargers' active roster.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Orlando Franklin
Orlando Franklin (ankle) has been ruled out for the Chargers' game against the Steelers on Monday.

With D.J. Fluker (ankle) also questionable for Monday's game, it's unclear who will get the start at either guard position against the Steelers, further clouting Melvin Gordon's fantasy value this week.

Travis Benjamin
Benjamin snagged four of his five targets for 54 yards in the win over the Falcons Sunday.

Benjamin didn't see as many targets as his teammates Tyrell Williams (10) or Dontrelle Inman (6), but the speedy receiver still managed to record his fourth-highest yardage mark of the season. That's even more impressive considering Benjamin's injury status heading into the contest, as the 26-year-old was questionable all week with a knee injury. He might have a tough time replicating those same numbers next week as the Chargers travel to face the Broncos.

Tourek Williams
Chargers linebacker Tourek Williams, who left Thursday's preseason game with an injury and was walking on crutches afterward, suffered a broken foot and will need surgery, according to NFL.com. 

By most accounts, Williams was one of the team's most improved players in training camp, so the injury is a big blow to the third-year pro, who had registered 31 tackles and one sack so far in the NFL. 

Antonio Gates
Gates caught five of his 10 targets for 38 yards in Sunday's win over the Falcons.

Gates was relegated to a de-facto check down machine as the Chargers fell behind early in the second quarter. As a result, the tight end picked up a whopping 10 targets, tied for the most on the team Sunday, but Gates was unable to do much with them as the Falcons defense clamped down. While Gates saw just 38 snaps compared to Hunter Henry's 47, the 36-year-old still has the attention of Rivers and that alone provides some fantasy value, but likely not enough for owners to use Gates on a consistent basis.

Isaiah Burse
Burse was released by the Chargers on Tuesday to free up a roster spot for RB/WR Dexter McCluster, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Burse was a healthy scratch Week 1 and played just five offensive snaps Week 2. Griff Whalen was signed Monday to take over as the No. 4 wideout, with McCluster likely assuming a role as a part-time pass-catching back who can also line up in the slot if needed.

Chris Hairston
Offensive lineman Chris Hairston announced via his Instagram that he has signed with the Chargers, per the San Diego Union-Tribune

Hairston, 25, has started 15 games in the NFL with the Bills. The Chargers are looking for a swing tackle and offensive line coach Joe D'Alessandris has familiarity with him from his time with the Bills.

The three-year veteran has played at both the left and right tackle positions and will provide depth for San Diego along the line. 

Tyrell Williams
Williams caught seven of his 10 targets for 140 yards in the win over the Falcons Sunday.

Williams was a major factor in the passing game, recording a career-high in targets and receiving yards against the overmatched Falcons secondary. While he may not be the No. 1 WR on the Chargers' depth chart, he certainly is the receiver to own for fantasy purposes, as the 24-year-old has recorded at least five targets in all but one game this year. Despite his success against the Falcons, fantasy owners may want to temper expectations next week as the Chargers travel to take on the vaunted Broncos defense which held Williams to just three catches for 28 yards in their last meeting.

Steve Johnson
Johnson (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve Thursday.

Johnson underwent successful knee surgery Tuesday, but wasn't placed on injured reserve until Thursday, which has now officially ended his 2016 campaign. The 30-year-old receiver has played in eight NFL seasons and will likely have to prove he's still got enough left in the tank following a tough knee injury. The Chargers signed James Jones to fill in for Johnson at wide receiver to help provide depth behind projected starters Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Jason Verrett
Verrett (knee) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Verrett required surgery after being diagnosed with a partial tear in his ACL earlier this week, and his recovery timetable will prevent him from taking the field again in 2016. Given that he did not suffer a full tear of his knee ligament, he could be back at 100 percent before training camp begins next year.

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Corey Liuget
Liuget tallied three combined tackles during the Chargers Week 1 loss to the Chiefs.

It was good to see Liuget flying around the field during the Chargers Week 1 performance. The 26-year-old appears to be back to full health after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery last December.

Spencer Pulley
No Updates
Javontee Herndon
Herndon (knee) was moved to the Chargers' injured reserve list Wednesday.

Herndon injured his knee July 30 and wasn't able to recover in time to make the team.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Melvin Ingram
Ingram led the way for the Chargers Sunday, recording nine tackles (six solo), a sack and two quarterback hits in the win.

Ingram coupled with Joey Bosa to wreak havoc in the Falcons backfield as the duo combined for three sacks in the come-from-behind win. Both players lead the Chargers with four sacks on the season, but it's Ingram who presents a solid amount of IDP upside as he's on pace to record a season-high in tackles.

Korey Toomer
The Rams reached the NFL's 75-man roster limit Tuesday with the release of 13 players, per ESPN.com, who include: OT Steven Baker, OT Travis Bond, CB Imoan Claiborne, S Jay Hughes, LB Keshaun Malone, LS Tyler Ott, K/P Michael Palardy, WR Tyler Slavin, TE Brad Smelley (waived/injured), LB Korey Toomer (waived/injured), C David Wang, WR Damian Williams (contract terminated) and DT Doug Worthington.

CB E.J. Gaines (foot) was placed on injured reserve. The Rams had previously waived/injured receiver Isiah Ferguson but he reverted to injured reserve with a torn ACL.

Sean McGrath
McGrath was waived by the Chargers on Saturday.

McGrath was waived in order to promote Tyrell Williams off the practice squad, a player who will give San Diego much-needed depth at the wide receiver position.

Matt Slauson
The Bears placed guard Matt Slauson on injured reserve Saturday and promoted tight end Blake Annen to the active roster.

Slauson tore a pectoral muscle a few weeks ago and was ruled out for the season in late October. The move opened up a roster spot for Annen, who may be active Sunday if Martellus Bennett (rib, questionable) is unable to go.

Deon King
No Updates
Carlos Wray
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Brock Hekking
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Chris Landrum
Landrum was promoted from the Chargers' practice squad to the active roster on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Landrum is set to provide depth at outside linebacker for the Chargers in Atlanta on Sunday while Jerry Attaochu (ankle) is sidelined. Landrum, a rookie out of Jacksonville State, will be making his NFL debut.

Kenneth Farrow
Farrow carried the ball twice for 13 yards in the win over the Falcons Sunday.

Farrow continues to see the bulk of the carries when Melvin Gordon is not in the game, although "bulk" might be a severe exaggeration given the fact Farrow has recorded just four carries in the last two games. While Farrow remains a solid handcuff for Gordon owners, he likely doesn't present enough fantasy value to be rostered in standard leagues.

Josh Lambo
Lambo made all four of his field goals, including a game-winning 42-yard field goal in overtime, as well as all three of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's win.

Lambo has been a revelation for both the Chargers and fantasy owners, as the second-year kicker has made all but one of his field-goal attempts this year. Lambo now ranks third in made field goals and extra points and will look to build on that performance next week at the Broncos.

Jatavis Brown
Brown was an absolute force Thursday, recording 14 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble in the win over the Broncos.

Brown was a one-man wrecking crew, picking up tackle after tackle during the final two quarters of Thursday's contest. His sack with just minutes remaining the fourth quarter came at a critical juncture as the Broncos were driving for a late touchdown. Brown then followed up the sack with a terrific tackle on Broncos' wide receiver Demaryius Thomas which forced the ball to squirt out of Thomas' hands for a nearly game-clinching fumble. Brown will undoubtedly continue to start at one of the inside linebacker positions, but it remains to be seen whether Denzel Perryman or Brown will shoulder the defensive load in the coming weeks.

Dom Williams
Williams hauled in four of his team-high six targets for 55 yards in Friday's win over the Cardinals.

Williams obviously shared some chemistry with the backup quarterbacks on the night, as Philip Rivers did not play a snap, and he played the role of possession receiver in his impressive performance. The Chargers are relatively thin at the wide receiver position behind Keenan Allen, Travis Benjamin and James Jones, meaning that Williams could have a real chance of making the opening day roster if he continues to impress.

Tenny Palepoi
The Chargers announced Monday that defensive lineman Tenny Palepoi, who played in all 16 games as a rookie, is out for the season with a fractured foot, per the team. 

Palepoi was placed on the Reserved-Injured list, effectively ending his season. The undrafted player from Utah was one of the Chargers' biggest surprises last season, registering four tackles for loss last season. 

"He's made the most out of every single opportunity he's had," Chargers coach Mike McCoy said. "He had an outstanding year last year, and it sucks to be honest with you."

Dontrelle Inman
Inman caught three passes for 58 yards in the comeback win over the Falcons Sunday.

Despite seeing 88 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday according to Pro Football Reference, Inman didn't factor in much statistically, snaring just three of his six targets. Still Sunday's catch total marks the first time in three games the 27-year-old has caught multiple passes. Given Inman's large snap count he still has some fantasy value, but it's anyone's guess as to when he might go off, making him a risky play at best.

Damion Square
Square is eligible to return return from his four-game suspension this week, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Square missed the Chargers' first four games after violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. With the punishment served, Square is eligible to rejoin the team this week, however the Chargers will need to make a roster move in order to bring him on. The 27-year-old will likely provide some depth along the defensive line, but the lack of consistent snaps will not make him an appealing asset in IDP leagues.

Danny Woodhead
The Chargers announced Monday that Danny Woodhead suffered a torn ACL in his right knee and will miss the rest of the season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

There was hope that Woodhead had suffered a mere MCL sprain, which would have allowed him to return at some point this season. However, further testing revealed the precise diagnosis and its season-ending nature. Losing their second premier receiver in as many weeks, Philip Rivers will likely trust even more in Antonio Gates, Travis Benjamin, and Tyrell Williams in the passing attack.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Max Tuerk
No Updates
Drew Kaser
Kaser won the punter battle in Chargers' training camp.

Kaser was competing against Kasey Redfern for the team's punter roster spot. Considering the Chargers spent a sixth-round pick on Kaser it is unsurprising that he won the competition. The Texas A&M product was the first punter taken in this year's draft. He set a school record last year with 26 punts over 50 yards.

Manti Te'o
Te'o has been placed on IR after suffering a torn Achilles during Sunday's game against the Colts.

It was expected Te'o would be placed on IR after it was announced Monday, Te'o had indeed torn his Achilles. Former Raiders linebacker Korey Toomer will take Te'o's place on the roster, with rookie Jatavis Brown expected to take over as the starting inside linebacker opposite Denzel Perryman.

Achilles - Injured Reserve
Tyler Johnstone
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Donavon Clark
Knee - Injured Reserve
Casey Hayward
Hayward recorded six tackles and one pass defense in Sunday's win over the Falcons.

Hayward put together another solid performance despite the Chargers losing another member of their secondary, this time Craig Mager to a concussion. Hayward will continue to see plenty of throws his way as teams look to expose the near depleted Chargers secondary, and as such, might factor in his fair share of tackles.

Joey Bosa
Bosa secured five tackles and two sacks in Sunday's win over the Falcons.

Bosa became the first rookie in Chargers history to record multiple sacks in two of his first three games, as the first-round pick was able to take down Matt Ryan on two separate occasions Sunday. Bosa has made an instant impact for the Chargers, and is tied for the team-lead in sacks despite missing the first four games of the season. He'll face a Broncos team next week that just one week ago held him to a one-tackle, zero-sack performance.

Philip Rivers
Rivers completed 27 of his 44 passes for a season-high 371 yards and one touchdown, while throwing one interception in Sunday's win over the Falcons.

Rivers and the rest of the Chargers offense was able to march up and down the field Sunday, recording a season-high in total yardage. Much to the dismay of fantasy owners, the mass amount of yards wasn't able to turn into many passing touchdowns as the offense stalled near the red zone, but it was encouraging to see Rivers put together another solid performance after being stymied by the Broncos defense last week. The 34-year-old quarterback will look to avenge that poor performance when he travels to face the Broncos next week.

Steve Williams
Williams finished with seven tackles and one pass defended in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.

Forced into action after injuries to Jason Verrett (knee) and Brandon Flowers (concussion), Williams and the rest of the beleaguered secondary held up about as well as you can expect. The 25-year-old likely shouldn't be a target for IDP owners unless he can see significant snaps on defense.

Brandon Flowers
Flowers (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Broncos, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Flowers was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday, but that wasn't enough to convince the Chargers to activate the corner for Sunday's game, marking the fourth straight game the 30-year-old will miss with symptoms stemming from his Week 3 concussion. Look for Casey Hayward to get the start at corner once again.

Concussion - Questionable for Week 8 at Denver
Jeff Cumberland
Cumberland (Achilles) was placed on the Chargers' injured reserve list Monday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Cumberland suffered a torn Achilles' tendon Friday during the Chargers' second preseason game against the Cardinals, ending his 2016 campaign before it had even started. When healthy, he'll hit the free agent market as an unrestricted free agent in 2017.

Achilles - Injured Reserve
Joe Barksdale
The Chargers have reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year deal with offensive lineman Joe Barksdale. The deal includes a $350K signing bonus and $1 million in incentives, according to U-T San Diego.

Barksdale spent the last three seasons with Rams, and started all 16 games, making one tackle in 2014. 

Joshua Perry
No Updates
Keenan Allen
Allen (knee) has been placed on injured reserve with a torn right ACL, ending his season, The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Allen missed the final eight games of last season due to a lacerated kidney, so his torn ACL suffered during Week 1 Sunday unfortunately add another serious malady to his injury history. While the Chargers will be devastated to lose Allen once again, they're also accustomed to playing without him recently. Knowing that, expect players like Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman should become more involved as receivers, while Travis Benjamin, Danny Woodhead and Antonio Gates embody San Diego's most proven targets at the moment.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Ryan Carrethers
Carrethers was released by the Chargers on Wednesday, ESPN's Eric Williams reports.

A fifth-rounder in 2014, Carrethers appeared in 20 games for the Chargers and collected 41 tackles along the way. However, he has been a healthy scratch in each game this season and was subsequently waived in order to make room for the addition of CB Steve Williams.

Brett Boyko
No Updates
Adrian Phillips
The Chargers announced offensive lineman Jeremiah Sirles has been promoted from the team’s practice squad to its 53-man roster. To make room for Sirles, the Chargers released defensive back Adrian Phillips
Branden Oliver
Oliver (Achilles) has been placed on IR by the Chargers.

With Oliver, who injured his Achilles during Sunday's preseason game in Minnesota now on IR, the Chargers' running back depth behind Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead takes a pretty tough hit. The team's current options on that front are Kenneth Farrow and Gus Johnson, but the Chargers could add another option in the next few days, as NFL cut-downs transpire.

Achilles - Injured Reserve
Kevin Norwood
Norwood (hip) was released from the Panthers' injured reserve list on Friday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Norwood, a 2014 fourth-round selection by the Seahawks, has been nursing a hip pointer since Carolina's fourth preseason contest. He's now eligible to sign elsewhere.

Hip - Questionable for Week 8 at Denver
Griff Whalen
Whalen was released by the Dolphins on Sunday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Whalen appeared to have made the Dolphins' 53-man roster following Saturday's final roster cuts. However, the Dolphins went on to claim former Titans' wide receiver Justin Hunter off waivers on Sunday, so they needed to clear a roster spot, hence Walen's release. He'll head to the open free agent market and could field some interest elsewhere from receiver-needy teams.

Craig Mager
Mager has been diagnosed with a concussion and will not return to Sunday's game.

With Mager out, expect Steve Williams to see a starter's share of snaps at cornerback. Mager will enter the concussion protocol and will have to clear it before being deemed ready to play.

Concussion - Questionable for Week 8 at Denver
Rasheed Bailey
Bailey (ankle) reached an injury settlement with the Chargers on Friday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Bailey signed with the Chargers in early-August, but didn't see a minute of preseason action. The agreement removes him from the team's injured reserve list, leaving him free to sign with another team.

Ankle - Questionable for Week 8 at Denver
Dexter McCluster
McCluster recorded one carry for a one yard loss, and did not catch either of his two targets.

Since joining the Chargers near the end of September, McCluster has failed to fill the role that Danny Woodhead (knee) vacated thanks to season-ending injury, recording 35 total yards in five games. So long as Melvin Gordon continues to perform well, McCluster isn't expected to see enough time on the field to warrant any fantasy value.

King Dunlap
The Chargers have re-signed starting left tackle King Dunlap to a four-year contract, the team announced Friday. The deal is reportedly worth $28 million over the four years, according to the Union Tribune.

Dunlap has spent the last two seasons with San Diego, starting all 16 games in 2014. In seven seasons, Dunlap has started 79 games for the Chargers and Eagles.

Caraun Reid
Reid sustained a knee injury Sunday in Atlanta and will not return.

The details of Reid's injury are yet to be reported. Damion Square will likely see additional playing time rotating in behind Corey Liuget.

Knee - Questionable for Week 8 at Denver
Tyreek Burwell
No Updates
Zamir Carlis
Carlis (ankle) was moved to the Chargers' injured reserve list Wednesday.

Carlis suffered an ankle injury during practice, but the severity or nature of which is undisclosed.

Ankle - Injured Reserve
Hunter Henry
Henry has entered the NFL's concussion protocol, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.

In the aftermath of Sunday's win in Atlanta, Henry experienced concussion-like symptoms and will thus be subject to a five-step process in order to be cleared for action. There's little doubt that his practice participation will be impacted this week, but every head injury is its own test case, so the release of Wednesday's injury report will be one to examine closely. If he requires time to recover, veteran Antonio Gates will chew up the majority of TE snaps Sunday at Denver.

Concussion - Questionable for Week 8 at Denver
Mike Windt
The Chargers have designated eight players as probable for the game Sunday against the Bengals, including running back Ryan Mathews and tight end Antonio Gates, both of whom are nursing hamstring injuries.

The others are wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu (hamstring), tackle D.J. Fluker (knee), defensive ends Corey Liuget (shin) and Lawrence Guy (toe), center Nick Hardwick (neck) and long snapper Mike Windt (ankle).

Shaq Petteway
Petteway (undisclosed) reached an injury settlement with the Chargers on Friday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The details of his injury remain unclear. Nonetheless, Petteway is now eligible to join another organization.

Dexter McCoil
McCoil picked up six tackles (five solo) in the loss to the Saints on Sunday.

McCoil, starting in place of the injured Jahleel Addae (broken collarbone), played admirably, picking up a handful of tackles. While backup safety Adrian Phillips recorded one of two interceptions by the Chargers secondary Sunday, McCoil was able to record more snaps. Neither McCoil nor Phillips look to be entirely reliable options in IDP leagues, but both could have their moments in the coming weeks.

Chris Watt
With longtime Chargers center Nick Hardwick retiring this week, the team will look to Chris Watt to replace him, reports ESPN.com. Watt started five games as a rookie and played in 12 overall, including some time at guard.

“You just don’t plug a guy in and figure he’s going to fill [Hardwick’s] shoes right away,” general manager Tom Telesco said. “We’re happy with the guys we have, but no one is going to walk in and be Nick Hardwick on Day 1. And we’re not asking them to do that.”

Offensive line coach Joe D'Alessandris said he's looking forward to watching Watt develop.

"I think he has a lot of great qualities as an offensive lineman," D'Alessandris said. "He’s got a good mind. He wants to grow. He’s a sponge. He wants to absorb and learn.”

Knee - Physically Unable to Perform
Sean Lissemore
Lissemore was placed on injured reserve Monday after suffering a shoulder injury, Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Lissemore was looking to rebound from a poor 2015 season in which he managed to play in just 11 games, tallying 16 tackles. While the 28-year-old was not expected to start this season, the injury will tax the Chargers depth along the defensive line, forcing unheralded players such as Ryan Carrethers or Chuka Ndulue to receive additional snaps on the defensive front.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Jeremiah Attaochu
Attaochu (ankle) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Attaochu couldn't practice this week and wasn't expected to suit up. Tourek Williams is likely in line for additional snaps at outside linebacker.

Ankle - Questionable for Week 8 at Denver
Jahleel Addae
Addae (collarbone) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Broncos, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Addae's status appears to be on the upswing for next week's contest, as the safety was able to practice with the Chargers on Thursday, albeit on a limited basis. For this week, however, Adrian Phillips is expected to get the start in place of Addae.

Collarbone - Questionable for Week 8 at Denver
Brandon Mebane
Mebane has signed with the Chargers, the Seattle Times reports.

Per the report, Mebane's three-year deal with the Chargers is worth up to $13.5 million. The veteran nose tackle -- who recorded 24 tackles and 1.5 sacks for Seattle in 15 games last season -- isn't much of an IDP factor, but he'll provide a welcome boost to the Chargers' defense in terms of his ability as a run-stuffer.

Darius Philon
Philon has been receiving first-team reps at defensive end as Joey Bosa continues his holdout, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

With Joey Bosa continuing his holdout, Philon has stepped in and performed well during first-team reps. While the second-year pro will likely take a back seat once Bosa arrives to camp, it appears as if Philon has likely worked his way into San Diego's defensive line rotation and should see an increase in snaps heading into the 2016 season.

Asante Cleveland
Cleveland was signed to the Chargers' active roster on Saturday.

With starting tight end Antonio Gates considered doubtful to play on Sunday, the Chargers' evidently felt they needed more help at the tight end position, waiving RB Andre Williams to make room. If Gates is ultimately ruled out, Cleveland will slot in behind Hunter Henry and Sean McGrath on the tight end depth chart.

D.J. Fluker
Chargers right guard D.J. Fluker suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday's season opener against the Lions, according to NFL Network. He will undergo an MRI on Monday, but it is believed he will miss 4-6 weeks.

Johnnie Troutman, who is in his third season in the NFL out of Penn State, is listed as Fluker's backup on the unofficial depth chart.

Kellen Clemens
Clemens completed nine of his 15 passes for 77 yards in the Chargers' preseason loss Sunday to the Vikings.

Clemens relieved starting QB Philip Rivers midway through the second quarter and promptly was unable to generate much offense. Despite his struggles, the 33-year-old appears to have a handle on the backup job, as his main competition for the role, Mike Bercovici, threw two interceptions during his stint in the second half.

Kenny Wiggins
The loss of D.J. Fluker to injury has prompted the Chargers to sign fellow offensive lineman Kenny Wiggins and waive tight end Kyle Miller, the San Diego Union-Tribune has reported.

Wiggins played the last two seasons with San Diego. Miller, who was claimed in the spring, has played in just two NFL games over five seasons. He has yet to catch a pass.

Trevor Williams
Williams was activated from the Chargers' practice squad to the 53-man roster, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

The former Penn State cornerback has yet to make his NFL debut. In all likelihood, Williams will function as a special teams asset with San Diego.
