The San Diego Chargers announced a number of roster moves on Saturday including RB Dexter McCluster being placed on the NFI list after fracturing his forearm during an incident that occurred at his home.
- Chargers also promoted ILB Deon King and WR Isaiah Burse off the practice squad and waived OT Tyreek Burwell.
McCluster, 28, is a former second-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2010. He spent four years in Kansas City before signing a three-year, $9 million contract with the Titans that included $4.5 million guaranteed. He was set to make a base salary of $2.275 million in 2016.
He was in the final year of his contract and set to make a base salary of $2.275 million in 2016.
In 2016, McCluster has appeared in six games and recorded three carries for two yards to go along with seven receptions for 36 yards receiving. He has also accumulated 182 kickoff return yards and 57 yards on punt returns.
Burse, 24, originally signed on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Fresno State back in May of 2014. He lasted just over a year in Denver before he was cut loose and later signed to the Steelers’ practice squad.
The Chargers elected to sign him to a future/reserve contract this past January before cutting him loose. Burse was later waived back in September to make room for McCluster and has bounced on and off the team’s practice squad since then.
In 2016, Burse has been active for one game but has yet to record a single reception.
