Shark Bites

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 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 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.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (back) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but a full-go on Friday. Allen is a legit WR1 in this weekend’s plum matchup vs. the Jaguars.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (back) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He was knocked out of his last game but got the Week 6 bye to heal up. We're tentatively expecting Allen to play against the Jaguars on Sunday but will continue to keep an eye on him.

Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said Wednesday that RB Austin Ekeler will be back "later rather than sooner," according to Daniel Popper of The Athletic. Lynn added that Ekeler's hamstring injury is "very serious." The initial recovery timeline called for Ekeler missing 4-6 weeks. This week will make 3 since the injury, and it's sounding like we should expect at least the longer end of that.

The Chargers on Monday designated DE Melvin Ingram to return from IR. That gives the team 3 weeks to decide whether to activate Ingram or shut him down for the season. Ingram landed on IR with knee trouble but could return to action as soon as Sunday against the Jaguars. If he makes it back for that game, Ingram would be in serious consideration for IDP lineups. He's at least worth grabbing where available in leagues that start more than 1 D-lineman.
