Runyan is a Charger

As expected, the Chargers have announced the signing of right tackle Jon Runyan. He replaces starting right tackle Jeromey Clary. He was put on the injured reserve with an ankle injury he suffered at Denver on Sunday.

Runyan, who turns 36 Friday, is a former standout for Philadelphia. He has not been with a team this season. The Chargers will give Runyan some time to get ready to play. For the time being, Brandyn Dombrowski is slated to play for Clary.

Runyan is expected to give San Diego’s offensive line veteran stability as it marches toward the playoffs. As I stated in an earlier post, this is a smart move by San Diego.
