Los Angeles Chargers place LB Kyzir White on IR, sign CB Jeff Richards

The Chargers announced that they signed cornerback Jeff Richards off the practice squad and placed linebacker Kyzir White on the injured reserve list on Saturday, according to the team’s site.

White hadn’t seen game action since Week 3 of the regular season and underwent a minor knee surgery he required in early October.

White played at least 61 percent of the defensive snaps the first three weeks of preseason and also saw action on special teams. The fourth-round pick had 17 tackles, three passes defensed, one tackle for loss and an interception.

With White out for the season, we can expect to see more snaps from Jatavis Brown. Safety Adrian Phillips will also be brought down to play WILL LB as well.

Richards was with Los Angeles throughout the entire offseason and had a great preseason, amassing 11 tackles and one pass defensed in four games. He most recently spent the beginning of this season on the Buccaneers’ practice squad.
