SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Chargers have activated outside linebacker Melvin Ingram and placed cornerback Jason Verrett on season-ending injured reserve with a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
Verrett, the Chargers' first-round draft pick, is expected to have surgery soon. He originally hurt his shoulder in a victory at Oakland on Oct. 12 — which he sealed with a last-minute interception — and aggravated it in a 35-21 loss at Denver three weeks ago.
Ingram was activated from injured reserve-designated to return. He'd been out since Sept. 20 with a hip injury.
The Chargers also signed safety Adrian Phillips from the practice squad to the active roster and released linebacker Cordarro Law from the active roster.
The Chargers (5-4), losers of three straight games, host winless Oakland (0-9) on Sunday.
