    With Shaun Phillips out 2-4 weeks due to a strained calf, the Chargers were in need of depth at linebacker; preferably someone that knew their system."  Enter Akbar Gbaja-Biamila.

    The former San Diego State Aztec spent the entire offseason with the Chargers and was waived just prior to the start of the regular season."  At the time, Head Coach Marty Schottenheimer said that Gbaja-Biamila had had a good training camp but became a victim of numbers.

    The Chargers started the season with 10 linebackers on their 53-man roster."  With Phillips out and Steve Foley lost for the season, the Bolts turned to a familiar face.</blockquote>
