Stuckey (knee) was released by the Chargers on Friday following a failed physical, Eric D. Williams of ESPN reports.
The veteran began training camp on the physically unable to perform list due to a knee injury suffered in the final game of the regular season last year. Stuckey spent his first seven seasons with the Chargers, but was scheduled to make $2.9 million in the final year of his contract as mainly a special teams player.
Stuckey injured his knee during the Chargers' season finale Sunday against the Chiefs.
The Chargers' season is over and Stuckey will have plenty of time to return to full health in time for the start of the 2017 campaign.
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.
Chargers defensive back Darrell Stuckey has been named as a replacement for Patriots special teamer Matthew Slater in the 2015 Pro Bowl, the team announced Monday.
Stuckey totaled 17 tackles as a member of the special teams unit in San Diego.
Chargers defensive back Darrell Stuckey recovered a fumble Sunday and returned it 53 yards for a touchdown in his team's 23-14 loss to the Patriots in Week 14.
The Patriots faced a third-and-short from midfield and completed a pass to Brandon LaFell, who fumbled the ball while crossing the first-down marker. Stuckey picked the ball up and took it the other way to give the Chargers a 14-3 lead, with the play standing on review. However, the offense was unable to score again and the defense couldn't keep the Patriots at bay for the entire 60 minutes. The Chargers face another tough test in Week 15 when they face the Broncos.
The Chargers listed 16 players on their final injury report leading up to Week 6 at Oakland. Running backs Donald Brown (concussion) and Ryan Mathews (knee), along with linebacker Manti Te'o (foot) and cornerback Shareece Wright (knee) were ruled out for Sunday.
Deemed questionable were the following players: wide receiver Malcom Floyd (calf), tackle D.J. Fluker (ankle), outside linebackers Jarret Johnson (back, ankle) and Cordarro Law (ankle), offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger (back), safety Darrell Stuckey (quad) and linebacker Reggie Walker (ankle).
Wide receiver Keenan Allen (quad), outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring) and Dwight Freeney (knee), inside linebacker Donald Butler (shoulder) and tight end David Johnson (knee, shoulder) were the only players ruled probable for the game.
The Chargers have signed a four-year extension with safety Darrell Stuckey. Stuckey did not start in any game last season, his third in the NFL, but played in all of them and contributed on 21 tackles.
The following injured San Diego players were ruled active for Week 13 against the Bengals: tight end Antonio Gates, running back Ryan Mathews, wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu,defensive lineman Lawrence Guy, defensive lineman Corey Liuget and defensive back Darrell Stuckey.
The Chargers have placed 12 players on their injury list as they prepare to host Cincinnati on Sunday, but only one will probably not play. Tackle King Dunlap is doubtful with a neck injury that had him limited in practice Thursday and Friday.
Listed as questionable are linebacker Jarret Johnson (hand), wideout Eddie Royal (toe/chest) and safety Darrell Stuckey (concussion).
The Chargers placed safety Darrell Stuckey on injured reserve Wednesday with a hamstring injury.
