Chargers cut down to 75

The San Diego Chargers got down to the 75-man roster limit Tuesday by putting three players on injured reserve, ending their seasons.

They are receivers Mike Willie (knee) and Dan DePalma (shoulder) and fullback Chris Gronkowski (ankle). Not much was separated from any of these players in 2013.

Meanwhile, U-T San Diego reports rookie linebacker Manti Te’o is out of the walking boot that he had worn since getting hurt in the preseason opener Aug. 8. The team is hopeful Te’o can start Week 1.
