Chargers add a receiver
By Bill Williamson
As expected, the San Diego Chargers promoted receiver Seyi Ajirotutu from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. He will likely be active Sunday against New England. He is a rookie free agent.
The Chargers will likely be without starting receiver Malcom Floyd and Legedu Naanee. They both have hamstring injuries and are both listed as doubtful on the injury report. Buster Davis and Patrick Crayton are expected to start at receiver. The Chargers also may be without star tight end Antonio Gates. He has a toe injury that kept him out of practice all week. Gates is listed as questionable and he is expected to be a game-time decision.
To make room for Ajirotutu on the roster. San Diego placed linebacker Kion Wilson on the injured reserve with an ankle injury. He is the fifth linebacker San Diego has put on the injured reserve this season.
