Reid was released by the Chargers on Saturday, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.
A depth defensive lineman for the majority of his career, Reid put together a solid showing during the preseason before ultimately hitting the waiver wire. Given his mild success during the exhibition contests, he could find his way back onto an NFL roster before the end of the year.
Reid -- who landed on injured reserve in late October last season -- appears to be healthy for this year's training camp. He supplied two tackles (one solo), including one for a loss, during the team's first preseason contest and will look to carry that momentum into a role as a reserve defensive lineman again in 2017.
Reid (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Eric Williams of ESPN.com reports.
The news comes as no surprise after the defensive tackle tore his ACL in Sunday's win over the Falcons. Expect Damion Square and Tenny Palepoi to see an increased workload with Reid out the remainder of the season. The Chargers also signed cornerback Pierre Desir to take over Reid's roster spot.
This is obviously a tough break for the 24-year-old Princeton product. There is currently no timetable for his recovery, but he will be unable to return this season. Damion Square and Tenny Palepoi will presumably see an increased workload with Reid sidelined.
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.
