The San Diego Chargers have finally cut Donald Brown from their roster. With the release of Brown the team has signed OL Michael Ola to help bolster their depleeted offensive line.

The Chargers have been desimated by injuries. D.J. Fluker, Chris Watt, King Dunlap and Johnnie Troutman have all had significant injuries so far this season. Troutman was placed on IR earlier this week, as he will not be able to return from a broken arm.

The 27 year old Ola played for the Chicago Bears last season. He played in 13 games and started 12 of them. By releasing Brown the Chargers lose $3 million dollars which Brown earned once he was on the active roster before week 1 of the 2016 season.

With the emergence of Melvin Gordon, Brown’s job was in jeopardy. The Chargers already have Danny Woodhead, Branden Oliver and Gordon. Donald Brown was a healthy scratch the first three games of the season, him being cut today was just a matter of time. The injuries to the line, forced the Chargers hand. Brown will surely land somewhere in a backup role.
