Ekeler active

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (hip) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He was reportedly sore after Wednesday’s practice, so HC Brandon Staley opted to give him the next 2 days off. It adds some risk to Ekeler’s Week 8 profile. But if you waited on him, get him in your starting lineup. It’s worth noting that RB Joshua Kelley is a healthy scratch, leaving just RBs Justin Jackson and Larry Rountree behind Ekeler. That suggests the Chargers aren’t very concerned about Ekeler.
