Chargers News: LA Signs 2 New Players Ahead Of Tough Ravens Game

The Bolts are making some changes.

Your 4-6 Los Angeles Chargers have inked two new additions, with a date against the 8-3 Baltimore Ravens looming.

Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports that, with linebacker Tanner Muse now officially on the team's Injured Reserve list due to a knee issue, the Bolts have looked internally to replace him. Los Angeles has inked practice squad linebacker Blake Lynch to their active roster, while replacing him on its practice squad with edge rusher Ty Shelby.

We knew Muse was likely to wind up on the IR after news leaked yesterday, so this isn't entirely shocking information, though it is a bummer nevertheless.

Given that the Chargers already have one of the worst defenses in the league, it's a bit disconcerting that the club is losing another roster piece ahead of what's more or less a must-win matchup on Sunday.

Muse, a 6'2", 227-pound Clemson product, was only pressed into service for the first time in 2023 last week, where he recorded one solo tackle against the Green Bay Packers in a 23-20 defeat.

Lynch, a 6'3", 233-pound vet out of Baylor, has 45 career tackles, two sacks and three pass deflections to his credit in his four seasons between the Minnesota Vikings, and now the Chargers. He spent 2022 and parts of 2023 with the Arizona Cardinals, but was exclusively a practice squad player while in The Copper State.
