Gordon questionable for Week 9 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (hamstring) put in a full practice on Friday after being limited the previous 2 days. But he’s listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Seahawks. And HC Anthony Lynn stopped short of guaranteeing that Gordon will play. "We'll see,” Lynn said. “I don't want to speak for Melvin, but if he's feeling well I know he wants to play.” Chargers-Seahawks doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET on Sunday, but we should get an update that morning.

Recent Shark Bites

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.

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) is on track to return for Saturday's game against the Ravens, but he admitted Monday that he's not all the way back yet. “I feel good, not 100% obviously,” Gordon said. “I don’t think that’s a secret. But I’m good enough to get out there.” Between the knee issue and a difficult matchup, Gordon will be more of a low-end RB1 for Week 16.
