The Chargers are set to activate RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) from IR, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Ekeler will return to practice this week, although it's still uncertain if he'll play against the Bills on Sunday. We'll monitor his progress. Ekeler should quickly re-emerge as a RB1 -- especially in PPR -- in the Justin Herbert-led Chargers offense.

2:11pm EST 11/15/20

Chargers RB Troymaine Pope (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. He joins Kalen Ballage and Joshua Kelley in a backfield that’s tough to project.

Chargers RB Justin Jackson (knee) has been placed on IR. He'll miss Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins and at least 2 more after that. Los Angeles will move forward with RBs Kalen Ballage, Joshua Kelley and Troymaine Pope, who's questionable for Week 10 with his concussion.

9:11pm EST 11/13/20

The Chargers have ruled DE Joey Bosa out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. It'll be the 2nd straight game Bosa has missed with his concussion. DT Jerry Tillery slid out to start in Bosa's place and notched a sack for the 2nd straight game. He hasn't topped 1 solo tackle in a game since the opener, though.

Chargers RB Justin Jackson (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. RB Troymaine Pope (concussion) is listed as questionable. His absence would leave Los Angeles’ backfield down to Kalen Ballage and Joshua Kelley. After Jackson exited early in last week’s game, Ballage totaled 15 carries and 3 targets to Kelley’s 9 carries and 5 targets.

Chargers RB Justin Jackson (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. His injury isn't believed to be serious, but his availability for this weekend's game against the Dolphins is uncertain. RB Troymaine Pope (concussion) was a full-go on Wednesday and should be back this weekend alongside RBs Joshua Kelley and Kalen Ballage.

It doesn't sound like Chargers RB Justin Jackson should miss further time with the knee injury that knocked him out early in Week 9. HC Anthony Lynn said at his Monday press conference that Jackson might have been able to return against the Raiders with a knee brace on had he been needed. We'll see about Jackson's participation this week, but it sounds like he at least has a shot to play against the Dolphins.

Chargers RB Justin Jackson suffered a knee injury early in Sunday's game against the Raiders. He's officially questionable to return. Jackson's absence leaves L.A. with RBs Joshua Kelley and Kalen Ballage.

Chargers CB Casey Hayward is active for today's game against the Raiders. He was a surprise addition to the injury report with a personal situation on which HC Anthony Lynn declined to elaborate. But the team's top corner will play. DE Joey Bosa (concussion) is inactive, as expected. His replacement, Isaac Rochell, will play. Rochell hit the day questionable with a neck issue.

2:11pm EST 11/8/20

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (illness) is active for today’s game against the Raiders. He came down with a sore throat on Saturday but passed his COVID test. Allen should be ready for his usual high-volume role today.

Chargers RB Troymaine Pope (concussion) is inactive for today’s game against the Raiders. L.A. promoted Kalen Ballage from its practice squad to join Justin Jackson and Joshua Kelley in the backfield.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen has passed his COVID test and will play against the Raiders today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Allen should be ready for his usual role and remains a must-start.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (questionable, illness) turned up with a sore throat Saturday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Allen reportedly tested negative for COVID Saturday but will need to pass another test Sunday to be active for the game. We'll be tracking his status throughout the day.

The Chargers have added WR Keenan Allen to the injury report and list him as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders with an illness, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We'll keep our fingers crossed for some indication on his status before the early games kick off, but you might need to wait until the late-game inactives come out -- around 2:30 ET for the Chargers' 4:05 p.m. start.

Chargers DE Joey Bosa is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Raiders because of a concussion. That's the same way Bears WR Allen Robinson entered last weekend before playing against the Saints. You should assume that Bosa won't be available for your IDP lineup this week, though. Isaac Rochell would start in his place.

Chargers RB Troymaine Pope (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. He surprisingly handled 10 carries and 7 targets last week. So his absence is a boost to both Justin Jackson and Joshua Kelley.

Chargers DE Joey Bosa suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. He'll need to pass through the league protocol before returning to play. That puts Sunday's game against the Raiders in question. We'll see about his progress this week. DE Isaac Rochell looks like he'd benefit most with extra playing time should Bosa sit out.

Chargers RB Justin Jackson (knee) is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. He was listed as questionable but put in a full practice on Friday, so we’re not overly concerned about the knee. Jackson is in the RB2 mix vs. Jacksonville’s 28th-ranked RB defense.

Chargers RB Justin Jackson (knee) is expected to play against the Jaguars today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Jackson is listed as questionable but practiced all 3 days this week, including a full workout on Friday. The knee adds some risk, but we still like him as a RB2 vs. Jacksonville's 28th-ranked RB defense. Jackson's knee issue adds some upside to RB Joshua Kelley's Week 7 outlook.

Chargers RB Justin Jackson (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jaguars. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. That suggests he’ll play, although HC Anthony Lynn only said “we’ll see” when asked about Jackson’s status on Friday. Chargers-Jaguars doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET, but we’ll look for an update on Jackson on Sunday morning.
