The San Diego Chargers waived-injured inside linebacker Jonas Mouton today, a precursor to formally placing him on injured reserve as long as he clears waivers.
Mouton tore his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee on Thursday.
The 25-year-old is expected to go unclaimed even though he's a former second-round draft pick from Michigan.
Mouton was in line for a backup job if he hadn't gotten hurt.
