Chargers add a familiar running back to replace Branden Oliver

November 3, 2015

Branden Oliver suffered a toe injury in Baltimore that'll keep him out for the final eight weeks.

So, the Bolts turned to a familiar ballcarrier to take his spot on the active roster.

The Chargers didn't add Smith because of his all-time football name. He's a shifty runner who starred for them this preseason (31 total touches for 82 yards and a touchdown).

He'll start his second tour in yellow and blue on the practice squad. But by the way things are going, he'll see the field sooner than later.
