The Chargers announced that they have signed rookie outside linebacker Bront Bird off the practice squad.
Wide receiver Bryan Walters has been placed on waivers.
Signed by the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech, Bird has 13 tackles, including two for a loss, during the preseason. Bird was waived in September and has been on the practice squad since Week 1.
The Chargers are thin at outside linebacker, with Shaun Phillips ruled out for tonight’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Th
