Placed on injured reserve:

Cut:

New England kept only three true wide receivers on its initial roster, meaning the club will almost surely be searching for more options on the waiver wire.

Chargers Waive RB Kenneth Farrow

Kenneth Farrow spent two seasons with the Chargers, the first as a backup to Melvin Gordon and the second on injured reserve.

Three days from beginning their offseason program, the Bolts waived the running back, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports (on Twitter). The Chargers waived Farrow in September with an injury designation, and he ended up on their IR list. He’ll now revert to waivers.

Wilson notes Farrow, who suffered a shoulder injury last year, is now healthy and has been training in Houston. The third-year back is a University of Houston product. Farrow started two games for the 2016 Chargers and played in 13. He totaled 262 yards from scrimmage, most of which coming after a late-season Gordon injury created an opportunity for playing time.

Los Angeles’ current contingent behind Gordon consists of former UDFAs Austin Ekeler and Russell Hansbrough, so it should be expected the team will target a running back in the draft.

Chargers Reach 53-Man Limit

The Chargers announced 37 player moves on Saturday, bringing them down to the 53-man limit. Here’s the full breakdown.

Released:

Waived:

Waived/Injured:

Reserve/Suspended:

Reserve/Injured:

Barner seemed to have a decent chance of cracking the roster as a pass-catching back, particularly after the loss of Danny Woodhead. On 27 carries last season, Barner averaged a career-best 4.8 yards per attempt.

Clemens, 33, was slated to return for a fourth season as Philip Rivers‘ backup. Instead, that job will go to Cardale Jones, who was acquired in a trade with Buffalo earlier this offseason.

Chargers Move Kenneth Farrow To IR

The Week 17 backfield for the Chargers will look somewhat strange, but that’s become the norm in San Diego this season. Kenneth Farrow‘s season will end on IR due to a shoulder injury, Eric Williams of ESPN.com reports.

Farrow injured the shoulder in the Chargers’ loss to the Browns but returned to the game. His rookie season concludes with 192 rushing yards on 60 carries. A UDFA out of Houston, Farrow saw action thanks to numerous injuries to San Diego ball-carriers. Melvin Gordon‘s status has yet to be determined, but it would be surprising if the Bolts sent their starter back out there in a meaningless game against the Chiefs.

This makes three backs on San Diego’s IR, with Farrow joining Branden Oliver and Danny Woodhead. Dexter McCluster also sustained a non-football injury and is out for the season. Coupled with Gordon’s status, Farrow’s unavailability will leave Ronnie Hillman as the top able back for the Chargers, who are going to finish with back-to-back losing seasons for the first time since 2000-01. Andre Williams remains on the practice squad, so that is a move the Bolts could make to supplement Hillman if they hold out Gordon this weekend.

Farrow will look to secure a backup job next season. Woodhead is a looming UFA, Oliver will be an RFA, and Hillman will venture back into free agency as well, clouding the Bolts’ backfield behind Gordon going forward.
