Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (quad) is active for tonight's game against the Raiders. Unlike WRs Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, we never heard any real concern about Ekeler's status for this one. He's safe to get into fantasy lineups.

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler sustained a concussion near the end of the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. This shouldn't impact Ekeler's offseason, but it's worth filing away in case he suffers another head injury.

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (quad) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Raiders. We've heard nothing to suggest that Ekeler is in any danger of missing this one, but check back around 7 pm ET tomorrow to make sure he's active.

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Bills. RB Kalen Ballage (ankle, calf) is inactive, so it’ll be Ekeler, Joshua Kelley and Troymaine Pope in the backfield. We’ll see just how much Ekeler plays in his 1st action since Week 4, but we’d lean toward getting him back into fantasy lineups. There’s big upside here in a likely shootout vs. the Bills’ 22nd-ranked RB defense.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) is expected to get "significant carries" against the Bills today. We'll see exactly how much action he gets on the ground -- but Ekeler should also be busy in the passing game. He has RB1 upside today.

The Chargers have placed RB Austin Ekeler on the active roster. It's an indication -- although not a guarantee -- that he'll return for Sunday's game against the Bills. We'll find out for sure when inactives are announced at 11:30 am ET tomorrow. If he plays, Ekeler will carry elevated risk in his 1st action since Week 4. But he'll also boast RB1 upside in this explosive, Herbert-led offense.
