Chargers promote TE Anderson to roster, place Culkin on IR
Culkin tore his Achilles in Sunday’s 30-10 win at Miami. With Hunter Henry (knee) and Virgil Green (groin) recovering from injuries, Anderson and Lance Kendricks are the only healthy tight ends on the roster. Fullback Derek Watt also has started to see some snaps at tight end.
Anderson joined the Chargers’ practice squad after being waived from New England’s practice squad. He played in 28 games for Houston in 2016 and ’17, recording 36 receptions for 435 yards and two touchdowns.
The Chargers also announced Tuesday they had signed defensive backs Quenton Meeks, tight end Matt Sokol and defensive end Jeff Holland to the practice squad.
