Chargers Trim Roster to 75 with One Preseason Test Remaining

With one week left in the preseason, the Chargers made their latest mandatory roster move today, cutting their roster down to 75 players.

The Chargers needed to clear five roster spots by the end of the day today, and did so. The players who fell victim to this were wide receiver Gary Banks, linebacker Darry Beckwith, guard Lee Grimes, and running back Marcus Mason.

The fifth spot was opened when the Chargers placed rookie linebacker Donald Butler on the injured-reserve list. Butler injured his Achilles tendon during training camp and unfortunately will miss what was looking to be a promising rookie year.

With their last preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers only two days away, the players on the roster bubble will be giving it their all on Thursday in hopes of making the final cuts, which will bring the roster total down to 53 players.
