The Chargers signed running back Sony Michel to add depth behind Austin Ekeler.
Recently released from Miami, Michel spent last season with the Rams rushing for 845 yards and catching 21 passes for an additional 128 yards.
He was the 2018 New England first-round draft pick and spent three years with the Patriots.
The team refrained from running back Larry Rountree III to make room in its 53-man roster.
Also on Wednesday, the Chargers added the following players to their practice squad: defensemen Kemon Hall, Michael Jacquet, Raheem Layne and Mark Webb Jr.; wide receivers Michael Bandy, Jason Moore Jr. and Joe Reed; defense attorneys Christian Covington and Joe Gaziano; offensive linemen Zack Bailey and Foster Sarell; edge rusher Carlo Kemp; Linebacker Tyreek Maddox-Williams and tight end Hunter Kampmoyer.
