Chargers Place Defensive Tackle On Season-Ending Injured Reserve

Done for the regular season.

The Los Angeles Chargers have placed defensive end Joe Gaziano on the injured reserve.

Gaziano made five straight appearances from Week 11 through Week 15, compiling eight total tackles and  one sack. The twenty-six-year-old reportedly suffered the injury in Sunday night's win over the Tennessee Titans.

Although the severity of the injury is still unclear, Gaziano will be forced to miss the rest of the regular season, however, he will be eligible to return in the playoffs if they make it.

The third-year defensive end was an undrafted free agent out of Northwestern.
