    SAN DIEGO (AP)—The San Diego Chargers have placed defensive end Luis Castillo(notes) on injured reserve and signed linebacker Nate Triplett(notes) to a two-year contract.

    Castillo broke his left leg in the season opener on Sept. 11 and the Chargers kept him on the active roster in the hope he’d be healed toward the end of the season.

    Triplett spent seven weeks on the Chargers’ practice squad in 2010. Triplett signed with Indianapolis last December and played in the Colts’ final five games on special teams. He also appeared in Indianapolis’ two playoff games. Triplett played in three games this season for Indianapolis.

    The Chargers also signed defensive end Damik Scafe(notes) to the practice squad.

    Damned shame for Castillo. I think a lot of fans underestimate
    what he does for the D (well, when he's healthy). Kills me to see
    any Charger just lose a year of his career, like this. Tough, tough break.


    p.s. My uncle caught a case of Damik Scafe when he was in Tijuana. When he
    got back to the States the doc just gave him some cream with menthol in it.
