The Chargers are down to two nose tackles.

On Tuesday, the team waived Byron Jerideau, trimming 334 pounds from a position that already looked light. San Diego is expected to add at least one rookie nose tackle in the next month, as Sean Lissemore and Kwame Geathers are the only ones on the roster.

Jerideau, 24, did not play last season.

He was signed in late April as an undrafted rookie from South Carolina. At best, he was a candidate for the practice squad before suffering an August shoulder injury that required September surgery.
