Woodhead is fully healthy ahead of the start of training camp Saturday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Woodhead sprained his ankle at the end of San Diego's minicamp this spring, but the time off has fortunately allowed him to make a full recovery. With teammate Melvin Gordon (knee) coming off microfracture surgery, Woodhead should be plenty involved out of the backfield early on, and is coming off a season in which he led the Chargers in catches (80), receiving yards (755) and receiving touchdowns (six). With numbers like those, the veteran continues to stand out in PPR leagues, making his return to health encouraging for the Chargers and fantasy owners alike.
Woodhead (ankle) is expected to be healthy for training camp, Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Woodhead sprained his ankle during the second-to-last day of minicamp, but was able to walk off under his own power. Considering Melvin Gordon may need some time to get his feet underneath him following offseason microfracture knee surgery, the 32-year-old running back is expected to be one of the main weapons for the Chargers, particularly in third down and no-huddle situations.
During team drills, Woodhead appeared to get tangled up with an offensive lineman and fall to the ground with a left ankle injury. Fortunately, Woodhead was subsequently observed walking off the field under his own power. The injury isn't expected to be serious, but he should be considered questionable for San Diego's final day of minicamp Thursday. Woodhead's status for training camp doesn't appear to be in any jeopardy at this point.
One week after gaining five yards per carry against the Raiders, Woodhead struggled to find any running room against a stout Broncos front. However, he did record eight catches for the second straight week, and managed at least 50 yards receiving in each of the season's final three games. With 2015 first-round pick Melvin Gordon having significantly underwhelmed in his first season, Woodhead proved to be a invaluable piece of the
Danny Woodhead rushed for 55 yards on 11 carries and caught eight of his 10 targets for 53 yards in Thursday's 23-20 overtime loss against the Raiders.
It would have been very unlikely for Woodhead to match his production from Week 15, but he still had a very productive night, despite not getting in the end zone. Donald Brown led the team with 14 carries, but he amassed just 17 yards while getting the lone score on the ground. Woodhead should once again be very involved in the San Diego Chargers rushing and passing attacks in next week's season finale in Denver.
