Chargers Place WR Dontrelle Inman On IR

The injuries continue to pile up for the Chargers. Los Angeles is placing veteran receiver Dontrelle Inman on injured reserve, according to Daniel Popper of The Athletic (Twitter link).

Inman started his career with the Chargers, and he had some real success in San Diego. In 2016 he had a breakout year, 58 passes for 810 yards and four touchdowns. He was traded to the Bears the following year, and things quickly went downhill for him. He had 334 yards in eight games with Chicago, and 304 yards in nine games with the Colts last year. He signed with the Patriots earlier this offseason, but then requested and was granted his release back in August.

Not long after, he was swooped up by the Chargers. Inman started Los Angeles’ game against the Dolphins this past week due to an injury to Mike Williams and he was very productive, racking up 76 yards on five catches. Unfortunately he also picked up a quad injury that will now sideline him for at least the next eight weeks. As Popper points out, the Chargers’ once promising receiving corp now only has three healthy options in¬†Keenan Allen, Geremy Davis and Andre Patton.
