Donald Parham: Touchdown in win

Parham caught one target for 22 yards and scored a touchdown in Sunday's 39-29 win against the Jaguars.

Analysis: Justin Herbert targeted the tight end for a 22-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter accounting for his first and only score of the game. No. 2 tight end Virgil Green suffered an ankle injury during the third quarter and will most likely be placed on injured reserve which should push Parham to the No. 2 role behind Hunter Henry, although Stephen Anderson could also play a factor as well. In any case, Parham's touchdowns have mostly been a byproduct of well designed plays as opposed to any sort of actionable focus.

Donald Parham: Targeted once in loss

Parham failed to haul in his lone target in Monday's 30-27 overtime loss to the Saints.

Analysis: After turning his first career target into a 19-yard touchdown reception Week 4 against the Buccaneers, Parham wasn't quite as lucky Monday. The former XFL standout remains an intriguing prospect, but so long as Hunter Henry is healthy, Parham likely won't have a consistent role in the Los Angeles passing game.

Donald Parham: Catches touchdown in lone snap

Parham caught his only target for a 19-yard touchdown in the 38-31 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Analysis: The XFL star actually saw just one snap the entire game, but he made it count with a nifty touchdown reception off a well-designed play-action pass in the second quarter. Parham has been a healthy inactive in each of the past three games prior to Sunday so it's unlikely this will be anything more than a career footnote unless injuries affect the top of the Chargers' tight end depth chart.

Donald Parham: Inactive Week 2

Parham (coach's decision) will not suit up for Los Angeles' Week 2 matchup against the Chiefs, per the Chargers' official Twitter account.

Analysis: The Stetson product still waits for the chance to make his NFL regular-season debut, after playing for the XFL's Dallas Renegades this past winter. Hunter Henry will, of course, serve as the starter against Kansas City, while Virgil Green and Stephen Anderson stand to see action in multi-tight end sets.

Donald Parham: Lands in Los Angeles

Parham signed a two-year contract with the Chargers on Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Parham's most recent pro action came with the Dallas Renegades in the XFL, during which he logged 24 catches for 307 yards and four touchdowns across five contests. He also spent time in Washington as an undrafted rookie last offseason. The Stetson product will now get a shot to compete for a depth role in the Chargers' tight end corps.

The Redskins cut Parham from the practice squad Tuesday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Parham ultimately spent less than a week on Washington's practice squad, having been cut to make room for fellow tight end Drew Belcher. The undrafted rookie out of Stetson will look to earn an opportunity elsewhere in the league.
