Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley provided some good news on Wednesday.
‘I’m excited to get DP back,’ Staley said. ‘I’m really proud of him. He’s been extremely patient. His patience has been tested. But to get him back, it’s going to be great to have him back in there. He’s been a very productive player for us. He’s got size. He’s got run-after-catch ability. He’s been a good blocker for us.’
Parham was designated to return from injured reserve and started practicing again last Wednesday.

Parham has played only two games this season, making three catches for 53 yards.
Getting Parham back is a big deal for the Bolts, as he provides another weapon in the passing game – nearly 20% of his career receptions have resulted in touchdowns.
In addition, his ability to seal blocks on the edge should aid a struggling run offense that ranks 31st in the NFL.
