Chargers Promote OL Spencer Drango, Waive LS Matt Overton


The Chargers have promoted OL Spencer Drango from the practice squad to the active roster ahead of tonight’s game, per Drango’s agent. 

Los Angeles also waived LS Matt Overton in a corresponding move. 

The Chargers downgraded starting LT Russell Okung to doubtful with a groin injury, necessitating the move for Drango to add depth at offensive tackle. 

Drango, 27, is a former fifth-round pick of the Browns back in 2016. He spent just over two years in Cleveland before he was waived at the start of the 2018 season.

Drango later signed on to the Chargers’ practice squad where he remained for the remainder of the season. He re-signed on a futures deal with the Chargers for 2019 and returned to the practice squad after being waived coming out of the preseason. 

In 2017, Drango appeared in all 16 games for the Browns.
