Dzubnar was promoted to the active roster after signing with the Chargers on Saturday.
It's unlikely he'll have much of a fantasy impact in the early going, but there's a chance he can move his way up the depth chart as the season progresses.
Dzubnar was waived by the Chargers on Monday, Jack Wang of The Orange County Register reports.
At one point it was speculated that Dzubnar could compete for the starting role but the 26-year-old instead failed to make the 53-man roster. A contributor on special teams, the linebacker could find an opportunity elsewhere this season.
Dzubnar is expected to compete for the inside linbacker job after the injury to starter Denzel Perryman, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.
Dzubnar has been a special team ace for the Chargers in the past, playing sparingly throughout the past two seasons, however he'll get a chance for a bigger role with Perryman expected to miss two months after undergoing ankle surgery. Both Dzubnar and Korey Toomer split reps with the first team defense during practice Wednesday, but Toomer does appear to have the advantage currently, having played in 13 games last season.
