Chargers designated S Adrian Phillips (arm) for return.
He landed on I.R. after breaking his forearm in Week 2. Phillips has missed the required eight games and could return as soon as Monday night in Mexico City, though that may be ambitious coming off such a long absence. Ultimately, Phillips will have 21 days to be activated once he resumes practicing. More secondary reinforcements are on the way as fellow safety Derwin James (foot) is expected to be the second player Los Angeles designates for return.
