  Chargers | Jason Verrett placed on IR    Sat Sep 23, 04:16 PM

Los Angeles Chargers CB Jason Verrett (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Sept. 23. The team also signed practice squad LB Nick Dzubnar to their active roster. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Verrett is a talented but oft-injured player, and this is a major blow to the Chargers secondary. They'll still have Casey Hayward as the no1 CB in that secondary, but second-year CB Trevor Williams (UDFA, 2016) will be lined up opposite of him. Expect opponents to go after Williams as much as possible.

  Chargers | Jason Verrett done for the season    Sat Sep 23, 12:59 PM

Los Angeles Chargers CB Jason Verrett (knee) has decided to undergo season-ending knee surgery and will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list shortly, according to a source.

Footballguys view: It's a crushing blow to the Chargers defense. Verrett's injury places undrafted second-year corner Trevor Williams opposite of Casey Hayward.

  Chargers | No contact yet for Mike Williams     Fri Sep 22, 09:49 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is improving every practice but not yet facing contact, head coach Anthony Lynn said Friday, Sept. 22. 'Mike's getting better every single day,' Lynn said. 'He's running full speed, changing direction.'

Footballguys view: Running routes and running at full speed is the first step for the talented rookie. We should see him hit the field for the Chargers at some point in October.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon expected to play    Fri Sep 22, 09:28 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) is expected to play against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3, head coach Anthony Lynn said Friday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: Gordon was a late addition to the injury report, but practicing on Friday shows that he's likely to play on Sunday. Things haven't been great for Gordon this year, but he's still got plenty of fantasy relevant as a centerpiece of the Chargers offense.

  Chargers | Questionable tag for Melvin Gordon    Fri Sep 22, 04:52 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Footballguys view: There's no outward sign that Gordon will miss the game against the Chiefs, but check back on Sunday just in case. Branden Oliver would be next in line for touches with rookie UDFA Austin Ekeler also mixing in.

  Chargers | Full practice for Dontrelle Inman    Thu Sep 21, 07:34 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman (groin) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: Inman may get in the game, but two targets last week with no catches as a result don't make a very enticing option for a start, even as flex option.

  Chargers | Mike Williams remains limited    Thu Sep 21, 07:29 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: Williams isn't returning yet, while Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams are doing just fine. We don't think Williams is rushing back, and more, it will take time for him to become fully integrated in the offense. On a deeper redraft roster, you can keep him, but with shallow rosters you're going to probably need the spot for a more useful and impactful player.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon added to injury report    Thu Sep 21, 07:15 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: Gordon has scored touchdowns two weeks in a row, even if he hasn't topped 100 yards yet, even combined. He should put up some decent numbers against Kansas City, though they are a tough on defense. We think Gordon should be a solid RB2 this week even against a good defense.

  Chargers | Week 2 injury report for Chargers    Fri Sep 15, 04:42 PM

Los Angeles Chargers CB Jason Verrett (knee) and S Rayshawn Jenkins (concussion, shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 15, and have been ruled out for Week 2.

WR Dontrelle Inman (groin), TE Sean McGrath (knee) and DE Jerry Attaochu (hamstring) fully participated in practice but are listed as questionable. OG Kenny Wiggins (ankle) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report.

Footballguys view: The loss of Verrett helps the case of Jay Cutler and the Miami offense. One of Kenny Stills, Devante Parker and Jarvis Landry will benefit if rookie Desmond King and Trevor Williams aren't up to the task of playing more snaps.

  Chargers | Mike Williams remains sidelined    Thu Sep 14, 06:37 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 14.
