The Chargers released fullback Andrew Pinnock and placed center Cory Withrow on injured reserve. He suffered a hamstring injury at San Francisco in the preseason finale Friday.
To replace those players, the Chargers signed tight end Kris Wilson and offensive lineman Kynan Forney. Wilson, a second-round draft pick in Kansas City in 2004, was cut by Philadelphia Saturday. Wilson gives San Diego depth in the wake of the team putting Scott Chandler on injured reserve Saturday. Forney gives San Diego depth on the offensive line. Most of Forney's experience is at guard.
It is unknown if his signing will affect San Diego's interest in the Willie Anderson. The Chargers talked to his agent Sunday. The tackle was cut by Cincinnati on Saturday.
With Pinnock gone, rookie Mike Tolbert is set to get most of the playing time at fullback.. The undrafted free agent has been the star of training camp and the preseason.
