Chargers place linebacker Kyzir White on injured reserve

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers placed linebacker Kyzir White on injured reserve on Saturday due to a knee injury and promoted cornerback Jeff Richards from the practice squad.

White was selected by the Chargers in the fourth round in last April’s draft and played in the first three games. He had 19 tackles, an interception and three passes defensed.

Richards has had stints on Los Angeles’ practice squad the past two seasons. The Chargers (5-2) have won four straight going into Sunday’s game at Seattle (4-3).
