ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Chargers are signing veteran C Doug Legursky to a contract on Thursday.
This comes just a day after San Diego was forced to place starting C Nick Hardwick on season-ending injured reserve following a neck injury.
Legursky, 28, worked out for the Jets earlier this week, but left without a contract. Rich Ohrnberger replaced Hardwick during Monday’s game and figures to be the starting center for now.
Last year, he appeared in 12 games for the Bills while playing guard and graded out as the No. 63 guard in the league out of 81 qualifying players, according to Pro Football Focus. Legursky’s low rating stems from poor marks in terms of run-blocking.
