Jonas Mouton clears waivers, will go to IR

Linebacker Jonas Mouton tore his ACL in the first practice of training camp for the San Diego Chargers on Thursday. On Saturday the team released him noting that if Mouton cleared waivers, he would be placed on injured-reserve. According to the U-T San Diego, that is exactly what has happened.

Mouton’s two years with the team were underwhelming. The first year he missed the whole season due to an shoulder injury he sustained during training camp. The second year Mouton wasn’t active on many game days. I’m sure¬†if he’s healthy next year,¬†someone will get the second-round pick a chance to compete for a roster spot.
