Chargers' Larry Rountree: Earns another deal from Chargers
The Chargers signed Rountree to a reserve/future contract Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Rountree was elevated ahead of Saturday's loss to the Jaguars in the wild-card round. He then reverted to the practice squad Monday after exclusively playing on special teams during this season-ending defeat, per the NFL's transaction log. The 23-year-old will now get another opportunity to carve out a bigger role heading into this third NFL season in 2023. Rountree has recorded 49 carries for 106 yards and a touchdown over the past two seasons with the Chargers.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Larry Rountree: Elevated for wild-card round
Rountree was elevated from the Chargers' practice squad to the active roster Friday.
Rountree will join the Chargers for their playoff matchup against the Jaguars in the wild-card round Saturday. The running back garnered only 13 carries for 19 yards this season and likely won't have much of an impact on offense versus Jacksonville.... See More ... See Less
Larry Rountree: Back to practice squad Monday
Rountree reverted to the Chargers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Rountree saw some action during garbage time of Sunday's regular-season finale against Denver. The second-year running back wound up playing eight of his 21 snaps on offense, recording three carries for four yards and a one-yard catch during the fourth quarter. Rountree recorded 13 carries for 19 yards and two receptions (on two targets) for 14 yards over the final two weeks of the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Larry Rountree: Unproductive season
Rountree finished the 2022-23 season with 13 carries for 19 yards and caught both of his targets for another 14 yards.
Rountree had a quiet season, as he spent the majority of it on the practice squad and appeared in just four games. The 2021 sixth-round pick finished fifth in yards and touchdowns among all Chargers running backs, and was also the least efficient, as he averaged just 1.5 yards per carry. Rountree's production fell off from his rookie season, as he had more than double the amount of touches and yards he had this year and also found the end zone once.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Larry Rountree: Called up again Week 18
The Chargers elevated Rountree from the practice squad Saturday for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Rountree will be elevated for the third week in a row to end the 2022 regular season. The second-year running back logged 10 carries for 15 yards and a 13-yard reception while playing 12 offensive snaps during garbage time against the Rams in Week 17. With the Bolts already locked into a wild-card spot heading into the regular-season finale (though the Bolts need to win to get the fifth seed in the AFC should Baltimore top Cincinnati), it's possible Rountree could once again see a healthy workload if the team decides to spare top running backs Austin Ekeler and Joshua Kelley from their usual number of touches Week 18....

Chargers' Larry Rountree: Reverts to practice squad
The Chargers moved Rountree back to their practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Rountree played 13 of 64 offensive snaps and 10 special-teams snaps in Sunday's win over the Rams. He finished with 10 carries for 15 yards and caught his only target for 13 yards. Rountree logged more work than expected behind Austin Ekeler (28 snaps) and Joshua Kelley (23), though all his work came late in the game after the outcome was essentially decided. With that in mind, Rountree likely won't see this much work next week against Denver if he is elevated again, as the Chargers will be looking to set themselves up as the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs....

Chargers' Larry Rountree: Elevated for depth
Rountree was elevated from the practice squad Saturday.
Rountree played four offensive snaps in Monday's win over the Chargers, but he didn't do much else. Expect the 2021 sixth-round pick to act as depth, particularly after veteran Sony Michel was waived Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Larry Rountree: Returns to practice squad
Rountree reverted to the Chargers' practice squad Tuesday.
Rountree played four snaps on offense and eight on special teams in Monday's 20-3 win over the Colts. However, he never touched the ball and failed to record any statistics. He'll be a candidate for elevation again in Week 17 against the Rams if the Chargers are in need of additional backfield depth.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Larry Rountree: Elevated to active roster
The Chargers elevated Rountree from the practice squad to their active roster Monday.
Rountree will presumably be active for Monday Night Football against the Colts after being elevated to the active roster. If he plays, it'll mark just his second appearance of the season. His last outing came in Week 10 against the 49ers, but he played exclusively on special teams and didn't record any counting stats.... See More ... See Less
Larry Rountree: Returns to Chargers' practice squad
The Chargers signed Rountree to their practice squad Tuesday.
Rountree was signed to Los Angeles' active roster Nov. 12 but was waived two weeks later when the Chargers' activated Joshua Kelley (knee) from injured reserve. However, Rountree has since returned to the organization and will provide emergency depth on the practice squad.... See More ... See Less
Larry Rountree: Let go by Chargers
Rountree was waived by the Chargers on Saturday.
Rountree signed with Los Angeles' active roster Nov. 12 but has now been waived two weeks later. The move comes on the same day that the Chargers activated fellow running back Joshua Kelley (knee) from injured reserve.

Chargers' Larry Rountree: Signs with Chargers
The Chargers signed Rountree to their active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game at San Francisco.
After joining the practice squad in September, Rountree will potentially make his 2022 debut in Week 10. With Isaiah Spiller and Sony Michel still in the fold behind Austin Ekeler though, Rountree does not have a clear path to touches right away.... See More ... See Less
Larry Rountree: Joins Chargers' practice squad
Rountree has been added to the Chargers' practice squad, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Rountree was waived by the Chargers on Wednesday after the team signed Sony Michel, but the 2021 sixth-rounder is back in the fold to add further organizational depth to a Los Angeles backfield that currently features top back Austin Ekeler, as well as Joshua Kelley, Michel and Isaiah Spiller....

Larry Rountree: Cut by L.A.
The Chargers waived Rountree on Wednesday.
Rountree finds himself as the odd man out after the acquisition of Sony Michel, who will likely step into a sizable backup role behind Austin Ekeler. As a rookie last season, Rountree appeared in 12 games and rushed 36 times for 87 yards and a score. He was competing for backup slotting heading into Week 1 but struggled to make an impact during limited work in the preseason.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Larry Rountree: Splits with Kelley
Rountree started Friday's 27-10 preseason loss to the Saints and rushed six times for 12 yards and a touchdown while catching both of his targets for 12 yards.
Rountree was the first Chargers running back to touch the ball with Austin Ekeler sitting out, but he didn't do much with the opportunity outside of a one-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter. Joshua Kelley also mixed in early and totaled 41 scrimmage yards on seven touches, but neither running back seemed to create much separation in the battle for the No. 2 running back spot behind Austin Ekeler. That job could eventually go to rookie fourth-round pick Isaiah Spiller (ankle), but Spiller may not be ready to suit up for the Sept. 11 season opener against Vegas, leaving both Rountree and Kelley with the opportunity to seize a consistent role in a high-powered offense....

Chargers' Larry Rountree: Five total touches in loss
Rountree rushed four times for 11 yards and secured one of two targets for no gain in the Chargers' 32-18 preseason loss to the Cowboys on Saturday night.
Rountree was the second running back into the game following Joshua Kelley, but as his final line indicates, he did little with the opportunity. Although Isaiah Spiller suffered an ankle injury of unknown severity Saturday night, Rountree appears to be behind Kelley for the No. 2 running back job behind Austin Ekeler.... See More ... See Less
