LA Chargers sign Michael Ola to boost offensive line depth
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers have signed well-traveled offensive lineman Michael Ola to boost their depleted depth at the position.
The Chargers also placed starting left guard Matt Slauson on injured reserve Tuesday with a torn biceps.
Ola has suited up for seven NFL teams and started four games in the previous three seasons. He was briefly with the San Diego Chargers in 2015.
The Hampton University product also has been employed by Miami, Chicago, Detroit, Seattle, the New York Giants and Buffalo.
Slauson, the Chargers’ starting center last season, was lost for the year during the Chargers’ third consecutive victory last week, 21-0 over Denver. Los Angeles also lost offensive lineman Forrest Lamp, a second-round pick, to a knee injury during training camp.
