·1 min read

COSTA MESA, Calif. — The Los Angeles Chargers activated offensive tackle Trey Pipkins from the COVID-19/reserve list Saturday.

The second-year lineman, who has started the last three games at right tackle, was placed on the list Friday after the team cancelled practice on Thursday after an unidentified player tested positive. Offensive guard Ryan Groy remains on the COVID-19/reserve list.

Either Pipkins or Bryan Bulaga are expected to get the call on right tackle for Sunday's game at Denver. Bulaga is the regular starter but has missed the past three games due to back and knee issues.

The Chargers (2-4) have also ruled out Desmond King for the Denver game due to a non-injury related issue. The fourth-year cornerback was held out of a game last year due to a team issue.

also signed running back Troymaine Pope and offensive lineman Cole Toner to the active roster. Pope was called up from the practice squad last week and recovered a fumble during a kick return in last Sunday's 39-29 victory over Jacksonville.

Los Angeles also called up wide receiver Jason Moore from the practice squad and signed tight end Matt Sokol to the practice squad.
