Chargers make several transactions, including officially activating Denzel Perryman and signing TE Jeff Cumberland

The Chargers announced they made several moves on Tuesday coming out of the bye week. The transaction most important to Charger fans was the activation of Denzel Perryman of injured reserve. The move means Perryman will officially return to the field in week 10 against Jacksonville, as has been expected the past couple of weeks. Perryman's return should be a huge boost to a run defense that has struggled at times without him.

The team also announced two new signings, tight end Jeff Cumberland to the active roster and guard/center Cole Toner to the practice squad. They waived linebacker Josh Keyes and offensive tackle Tyler Marz to make room for Perryman and Cumberland.

Marz was signed of the Titans' practice squad just over a month ago but was inactive for all six games he was on the Chargers' roster. Keyes was signed in mid-October and appeared in two games as a special teamer.

Cumberland, an un-drafted free agent out of Illinois in 2009, spent the first six years of his career with the Jets. He signed with the Chargers in 2016 but missed the whole season with an achilles injury. He was back in camp this year but failed to make the team initially, being released at final cuts. It's worth noting Anthony Lynn was on the Jets' staff for five of Cumberland's years with the team.

Finally, Toner was a fifth round pick out of Harvard by the Cardinals in 2016. He was waived this past September and spent time on the practice squads of the Bengals and Patriots earlier this season.
