Out with one former Colt, and in with another for the San Diego Chargers.

The Chargers officially pulled the plug on Bob Sanders on Wednesday, putting the injury-prone safety on injured reserve, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Sanders was unable to play last week against Kansas City due to swelling in his knee.

To replace him on the roster, the Chargers signed defensive lineman Tommie Harris, who had been in camp with the Indianapolis Colts. Harris, who spent seven years with the Chicago Bears, will essentially be filling in for Jacques Cesaire, who will miss a couple of weeks with a knee injury himself.
