The Chargers’ offensive line, racked by injuries this season, has seen yet another member land on injured reserve.
The team has announced that left tackle Marcus McNeill, who suffered a neck injury 20 days ago against the Raiders, is done for the season.
His roster spot will be replaced by former Chiefs tackle Jared Gaither. Waived after a critical false start late in an eventual loss to the Steelers, Gaither’s contract has been claimed by San Diego.
The 4-7 Chargers have lost six games in a row.
