  Chargers | Austin Ekeler misses practice     Tue Dec 11, 05:16 PM

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (neck, concussion) was held out of practice Tuesday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: It was reported earlier that Ekeler is not expected to play this week. The Chargers might be rolling out Justin Jackson as their starter in Week 15 on Thursday night against the Chiefs.

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) was limited in practice Tuesday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: Gordon is considered to be a game-time decision in Week 15. The Chargers play Thursday night against the Chiefs. They might have to go with Justin Jackson as their starting back.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon is a game-time decision    Tue Dec 11, 03:34 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) will be a game-time decision Thursday, Dec. 11, against the Kansas City Chiefs as he continues to nurse a sprained right knee.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs have to be ready to make a move here. The Chargers have a good matchup against a soft Chiefs defense in Week 15, but it's going to be difficult to trust Gordon his first week back...especially since his return may or may not be close. Expect the team to be cautious with Gordon. Justin Jackson may get a large role if Gordon (knee) can't play and Austin Ekeler is still in concussion protocol.

  Chargers | Justin Jackson has an opening    Tue Dec 11, 11:44 AM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson is likely to see more playing time with RBs Melvin Gordon (knee) and Austin Ekeler (concussion) unlikely to play Thursday, Dec. 13, in Week 15.

Footballguys view: Gordon is considered a game-time decision for Thursday night's game against the Chiefs. If Gordon doesn't play and Ekeler is not cleared, Jackson would step into the starting role. That alone gives him flex appeal in Week 15.

  Chargers | Detrez Newsome to see some time    Tue Dec 11, 11:42 AM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Detrez Newsome is likely to see more playing time with RBs Melvin Gordon (knee) and Austin Ekeler (concussion) unlikely to play Thursday, Dec. 13, in Week 15.

Footballguys view: Newsome was picked up as an undrafted free agent in 2018. Coming out of Western Carolina, Newsome measures in at 5'10" 210 pounds and has a slashing running style. He can contribute as a receiver out of the backfield as evidenced by the 108 receptions Newsome had during his college career. Newsome might be the backup to Justin Jackson on Thursday night (if Gordon and Ekeler don't play).

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon likely out again    Tue Dec 11, 11:37 AM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) is unlikely to play Thursday, Dec. 13, in Week 15.

Footballguys view: Early reports indicated that Gordon could return this week but that may not be the case. Gordon is now considered a game-time decision in Week 15.

  Chargers | Austin Ekeler unlikely this week    Tue Dec 11, 11:35 AM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (concussion) is unlikely to play Thursday, Dec. 13, in Week 15.

Footballguys view: The Chargers may have their depth seriously challenged at the running back position this week. If Ekeler can't play and Melvin Gordon (knee) misses the Thursday night game against the Chiefs, Justin Jackson would get the start for the Chargers.

  Chargers | Austin Ekeler avoided concussion    Mon Dec 10, 04:01 PM

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (neck) is day-to-day with a neck stinger he suffered in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Chargers here...especially because they play on Thursday night against the Chiefs in Week 15. Reports indicate this could be the week that Melvin Gordon returns to the field after missing some time due to a knee injury. Ekeler is there to be the lead back in case Gordon does not yet return. Ekeler was also evaluated for concussion but was cleared and is not in the league's protocol.

  Chargers | Austin Ekeler suffered a stinger    Mon Dec 10, 01:29 AM

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (neck) aggravated an ongoing problem with stingers late in the game Sunday, Dec. 9, and will require further testing, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: We'll have to see what the test results reveal. The Chargers have Justin Jackson behind Ekeler and reports speculate that Melvin Gordon could return in Week 15 for a Thursday night matchup against the Chiefs. Stay tuned.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon could play in Week 15    Sun Dec 9, 10:21 AM

Although Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) will not play in Week 14's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, there is a chance that he could return for Week 15's contest against the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday, Dec. 13.

Footballguys view: This week's practices will be huge for Gordon. If the Chiefs lose to the Ravens today, the Chargers will have even more to gain, and perhaps err on the side of playing him.

  Chargers | Teammates confident in Justin Jackson     Fri Dec 7, 10:44 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson didn't surprise his teammates with his performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 13, according to QB Philip Rivers.

Footballguys view: Jackson's snap and touch count are sure to go up this week. He's worth a flex look and could even outproduce Austin Ekeler if the Chargers jump out to a big lead.

  Chargers | Coach mum on Melvin Gordon    Thu Dec 6, 09:58 AM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon's (knee) availability is one thing head coach Anthony Lynn was mum on Thursday, Dec. 6. 'You never know... You just want everybody preparing for everybody,' Lynn said.

Footballguys view: Gordon isn't going to play this week and his lack of practice makes a Thursday game next week against the Chiefs a bit of a stretch. We won't see him until Week 16 at the earliest.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon misses practice    Wed Dec 5, 06:54 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: We think Gordon is going to need another game (at least) of rest after injuring his MCL in Week 12. Without Gordon, the Chargers should turn to Justin Jackson as a runner and Austin Ekeler as a receiving option out of the backfield.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) could return to action in Week 14's game versus the Cincinnati Bengals or Week 15's contest against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: The Week 15 game is a Thursday night matchup, so chances are the Chiefs are planning on bringing him back then and not next week which would require him to play twice in five days.
