Chargers make a pair of roster transactions

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Los Angeles Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

On Thursday afternoon, the Chargers announced a pair of roster transactions prior to practice.

The Bolts have placed wide receiver Travis Benjamin on injured reserve and signed defensive tackle T.Y. McGill.

McGill was most recently with the Washington Redskins but spent a good portion of last season and this entire past offseason with the Chargers before failing to make the final 53-man roster.

The move to place Benjamin on IR means that younger receivers such as Andre Patton and Jason Moore could receive an increase in snaps going forward.
