The Chargers had to get the roster to 80 players by 1 pm PT on Tuesday.
The team announced the players released are:
Guard Cameron Hunt
Kicker James McCourt
Cornerback Tevaughn Campbell
Linebacker Damon Lloyd
Edge defender Ty Shelby
In addition, they placed tight end Stone Smartt on reserve/non-football illness (NFI) and signed cornerback Michael Jacquet.
Campbell, Lloyd, and Shelby were waived with injury designations, which means they will revert to Reserve/Injured if they go unclaimed on waivers.
