In recent and expected news, the Chargers have officially placed cornerback Chris Harris Jr. on IR with a foot injury that is expected to keep him sidelined for four to six weeks. In a corresponding move, the Bolts are promoting safety Jahleel Addae to the active roster.
Chargers promoted safety Jahleel Addae to the active roster and placed cornerback Chris Harris Jr. - who has a broken bone in his foot - on injured reserve. Injuries have devastated Chargers’ defense.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 29, 2020
Addae was signed following the Week 2 matchup with the Chiefs where starting strong safety Rayshawn Jenkins went down with a minor groin injury. He ended up being being okay and he did play this past Sunday, but now with Harris out, Desmond king will slide back in at nickel corner and Addae will provide the needed depth behind both safety positions.
Through his nine-year career with the Denver Broncos, Harris only missed five games total. In his first season with the Chargers, he may end up missing that same amount.
Through three games in 2020, Harris has recorded 15 total tackles with a lone tackle-for-loss, and a single pass breakup.
