Roberts (knee) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
Roberts, who just signed with the Chargers at the end of May, tore his ACL during practice Saturday, and landing on injured reserve officially ends the tight end's season. The rookie will have to wait another year before making his NFL debut.
According to head coach Anthony Lynn, Roberts suffered a torn ACL during Saturday's practice, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Roberts was signed in late May after Hunter Henry (knee) went down with a torn ACL. The rookie out of UCLA will miss the entire 2018 campaign and try his luck at a roster spot next season.
