SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Chargers have placed 17-year veteran long snapper David Binn on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, meaning he will miss the rest of the season.
Binn was a rookie in 1994, the only season the Chargers have reached the Super Bowl.
He was hurt in Monday night's 21-14 loss to Kansas City.
Binn played in 256 of the last 257 regular-season games and all 12 of its playoff games dating to 1994.
The Chargers signed James Dearth to replace Binn on the 53-man roster.
