Walton, 28, played in one game for the Chargers this season. Playing in his sixth season in the NFL, Walton has spent time with the Broncos, Redskins and Giants prior to 2015, starting 52 games over his career.
Center Trevor Robinson will remain the starter and Walton will serve as his back up until Watt is healthy enough to take the field again.
The Chargers have not announced a return time for Watt, nor have they officially listed him as injured, as the team does not have to list their first injury report of the week until Wednesday.
