Chargers' Otito Ogbonnia: Moved to IR
The Chargers placed Ogbonnia (kneecap) on injured reserve Wednesday.
Ogbonnia was officially placed on IR after exiting Sunday's loss to the 49ers with a ruptured left patellar tendon, which will leave him sidelined for the remainder of the season. While the rookie defensive tackle primarily played a reserve role over seven games this season, his injury comes at the worst possible time, as veteran defensive lineman Christian Covington (pectoral) is also set to miss at least the next four weeks while on IR. As a result, the Chargers signed Tyeler Davison off the Browns' practice squad Wednesday to help provide depth behind likely starting nose tackle Breiden Fehoko moving forward.... See More ...

Chargers' Otito Ogbonnia: Dealing with ruptured patellar
Chargers coach Brandon Staley said that Ogbonnia has a ruptured patellar tendon and is set to miss the remainder of the season, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Ogbonnia was previously expected to sit out the rest of the season due to a quad injury suffered during Sunday's loss to the 49ers. However, it appears he actually ruptured his left patellar tendon, leaving him with a 6-to-12-month recovery based on the usual timetable for such injuries. Ogbonnia will finish his rookie season campaign with 14 tackles and 133 defensive snaps played, and he'll now shift his focus to returning by the start of the 2023 season.... See More ... See Less

Chargers' Otito Ogbonnia: Moves to Los Angeles
The Chargers selected Ogbonnia in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 160th overall.
The Chargers are betting on Ogbonnia's size (6-foot-4, 323 pounds) making him a quality run stopper, but the UCLA product tended to play too upright at the line of scrimmage to make much of an impact in that regard during his college career. Expect the fifth-round pick to be a rotational piece in the interior defensive line along with offseason free-agent additions Sebastian Joseph-Day and Austin Johnson.... See More ... See Less
