The Chargers placed LB Stephen Cooper and RB Mike Tolbert on injured reserve and signed RB Curtis Brinkley and LB Darry Beckwith to the active roster from the practice squad.

Tolbert (neck) started four games this season and rushed for 735 yards and 11 touchdowns. Cooper (knee) had 43 tackles and a sack in 12 games.

The Chargers' loss to the Bengals in Week 16 eliminated them from playoff contention.
