Chargers sign RB Ballage to active roster, RB Jackson to IR

The Los Angeles Chargers signed running back Kalen Ballage to the active roster for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins, replacing Justin Jackson, who was moved to injured reserve Saturday with a knee injury.

Jackson, who has rushed for 185 yards on 45 carries in six games (four starts), could return as early as Week 13. Ballage was effective in Week 9, rushing for 69 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries in a 31-26 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, before getting sent back to the practice squad.

The Chargers (2-6), who ruled defensive end Joey Bosa (concussion) out for the second straight week, also activated cornerback Quenton Meeks from the practice squad.

The Chargers also will be without running back Austin Ekeler who has been out since Week 4 because of a left hamstring strain and a hyperextended knee. He recently said on social media that he is getting closer to returning to the field.
