The Chargers signed running back Larry Rountree III to the active roster from the practice squad Saturday, the team announced.

Rountree appeared in 12 games last year as a rookie after being selected in the sixth round of the 2021 draft. He totaled a touchdown and 87 yards on 36 rushing attempts and returned seven kickoffs for 117 yards.

The Chargers also elevated kicker Cameron Dicker and tackle Foster Sarell from the practice squad for Sunday’s game.

Dicker earned AFC Special Teams Player of the Week after his Chargers debut last week. He made both PATs and a pair of field goals, including a game-winning 37-yarder as time expired. Both of his field goals came late in the fourth quarter.

Dicker also won NFC Special Teams Player of the Week in his NFL debut for Philadelphia earlier this year.

Sarell made his NFL debut earlier this season for Los Angeles, contributing to the team’s win over Denver on Monday Night Football.

  1. Dicker needs to latch onto a team full time. The guy is a stud and is better than most of the other kickers in the NFL, Jeez, he’s been ST player of the week twice already, and I believe he’s only played in two games in the NFL to date.

  2. Dicker is also a punter..it seems a team could sign him, drop a punter, and have an extra roster spot for a position player.

  3. It’s time to cut Hopkins when he’s healthy. DICKER will be the Chargers kicker for the next 10 years
