The Chargers also promoted LB B.J. Bello, LB Cole Christiansen and NT Breiden Fehoko to their active roster for Sunday’s game.

Ekeler, 25, wound up going undrafted out of Western State back in 2017. He played out the final year of his three-year contract and was in line to be a restricted free agent this offseason when he agreed to a four-year, $24.5 million deal that includes $15 million guaranteed.

In 2020, Ekeler appeared in four games for the Chargers and rushed for 248 yards on 49 carries (5.1 YPC) to go along with 17 receptions for 144 yard receiving and one touchdown.
