Just hours ahead of Thursday night’s matchup between the Chargers and Raiders, the Bolts are promoting tight end Stephen Anderson and defensive tackle Christopher Hinton from the practice squad. The moves come as fellow tight end Donald Parham Jr. and defensive tackle Otito Ogbonnia were both on the final injury report of the week after practicing in a limited fashion the past two days.

Anderson was with the Chargers from 2019-2021 between the end of Anthony Lynn’s time as head coach and into Brandon Staley’s first year with the team. He caught 24 passes for 271 yards and a single touchdown during that span. He most recently played in 16 games with the Arizona Cardinals in 2022.

Hinton has been back and forth from the active roster to the practice squad over the past year. He was originally an undrafted free agent out of Michigan following the 2022 NFL Draft.
