He signed a new contract with the Chargers 10 days ago.  But after Stephen Cooper suffered a torn biceps, which was expected to require two-to-three months to heal, the team opted not to wait.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Cooper has been placed on injured reserve.  Acee thinks that, with the move, Cooper’s career with the Chargers is over.

Undrafted out of Maine in 2003, Cooper has played only for the Chargers.
