The San Diego Chargers released tackle Jared Gaither, the team announced today.
Gaither started and played in four games at left tackle in 2012 (Weeks 4, 5, 7 & 8). He was placed on Reserve-Injured on Nov. 23 due to a groin injury. He missed most of training camp and the first three games of the regular season due to a back injury. He suffered a groin injury late in the game at New Orleans in Week 5.
Gaither started and played in the final five games of the 2011 season after being claimed by the Chargers on waivers from Kansas City.
