Runyan joins Chargers ... after Justice signs $18.15 million contract extension

Former Eagles right offensive tackle Jon Ruyan signed late Tuesday evening with the San Diego Chargers, who are running out of offensive tackles.
Runyan has played in 213 straight games including the playoffs. He also has an ironman streak of 190 straight regular season starts. But he hasn't played or practiced since undergoing microfracture surgery on his left knee.
The Eagles worked out Runyan in September when Shawn Andrews' back problems flared up but preferred to go with Winston Justice at right tackle. Justice signed a four-year contract extension Tuesday worth $18.15 million including a $6 million signing bonus according to ESPN.
The Chargers put right tackle Jeromery Clary (ankle) on injured reserve and likely will start Brandyn Dombrowski until Runyan is ready to play according to reports.
