Chargers HC Anthony Lynn on Melvin Gordon's role: "He's our starter. No doubt. He was our starter for a reason... as soon as Melvin's ready, he'll go back. He'll go back to number one." Lynn did praise Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson's work and says they'll have a role still.

Austin Ekeler, who had 18 total touches for 154 yards and 3 TD today, will make $645,000 all season from the Chargers. Melvin Gordon will forfeit $329,705 for each game that he sits out this season.

While the two sides exchanged proposals in recent days, there is mounting pessimism Chargers’ holdout Melvin Gordon will be reporting anytime soon and his holdout threatens to go into the regular season, per sources. Time to rely on Austin Ekeler, Justin Jackson, Detrez Newsome.

Chargers believe there’s a legitimate chance that three key injured players - WR Keenan Allen (hip), RBs Melvin Gordon (knee) and Austin Ekeler (neck) - all will be ready for Saturday night’s game vs. Ravens, per source.

After recently dealing with stingers, Chargers’ RB Austin Ekeler aggravated the injury today and will require further testing, per source. With a game Thursday night vs. Chiefs, the short week will make it tough for Ekeler to be ready.

So to recap for Thursday night: Chargers’ RB Austin Ekeler is out. Chiefs’ RB Spencer Ware is doubtful. Chargers’ RB Melvin Gordon is questionable.

The Chargers are not optimistic that running backs Melvin Gordon (knee) and Austin Ekeler (neck, concussion) will be ready for Thursday's huge AFC West matchup at Kansas City, HC Anthony Lynn told me. Rookie RBs Justin Jackson and Detrez Newsome likely to be the spot
