Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He missed the London game 2 weeks ago and had the bye to rest. The fact that he still isn't a full-go is a bit concerning. But the Chargers might just be playing it safe with their workhorse. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Recent Shark Bites

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon has informed the team that he won't report to training camp and will demand a trade if he doesn't receive a new contract, his agent told ESPN. Gordon is set to make $5.6 million this season in the final year of his rookie deal. The Chargers currently have a little less than $11 million in available salary cap space, according to OverTheCap.com, so they could make a new deal with Gordon work. We'll see how much they're willing to give up to get him back in the building. If Gordon holds out into the regular season or is traded, the Chargers would be left with RBs Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson.

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) isn't listed on the final injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. He was never missing this weekend's game against the Patriots but won't be anywhere close to 100%. Gordon has sprained both knees and twisted an ankle over the past month and a half. He's a risky DFS play this week. We prefer the cheaper Austin Ekeler.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport describes the injury Chargers RB Melvin Gordon suffered in Sunday's win over the Ravens as "a little knee sprain." Rapoport adds that it's similar to the right knee injury he suffered in Week 12. That cost him 3 games -- but Gordon returned to Sunday's contest in Baltimore and is expected to play against the Patriots this weekend. "Just may not exactly look like his old self," Rapoport cautions. Gordon averaged just 2.4 yards per carry vs. the Ravens and was out-snapped 39 to 32 by Austin Ekeler. Don't be surprised if Ekeler plays an expanded role again this weekend.

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon injured his left knee in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Ravens and limped back to the locker room. This is the opposite knee from the one he injured back in Week 12. We'll update Gordon's status as we learn more. His absences leaves the Chargers with RBs Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson.

Update: Gordon has returned to the game.

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) isn't listed on the final injury report after putting in 3 full practices this week. He'll return for Saturday night's game against the Ravens. Both Gordon and HC Anthony Lynn have admitted that the RB isn't quite at 100%. That, plus the tough matchup, makes Gordon more of a low-end RB1 for Week 16. RB Austin Ekeler (neck) is doubtful, so Justin Jackson will serve as the #2 RB.
