You may have heard this one before but the San Diego Chargers have placed another player on injured reserve.
The team announced on Monday that linebacker Nick Dzubnar’s season is over after suffering a knee injury in the Chargers loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 4.
Dzubnar had six tackles in four games before being injured. He becomes the 16th player on injured reserve for San Diego just five weeks into the season. The list includes Keenan Allen, Stevie Johnson, Sean Lissemore, Branden Oliver, Manti Te’o, Jason Verrett and Danny Woodhead.
In Dzubnar’s place, the Chargers activated nose tackle Damion Square.
Square missed the first four games of the season while suspended for a violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy. He was given a roster exemption after returning from suspension last week.
He appeared in six games for San Diego last season. He had six tackles and a fumble recovery.
