Chargers' Branden Oliver: Expects to begin running in January
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (Achilles) is expected to start running in January, Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Oliver was placed on IR after tearing his Achilles in the preseason, kicking off what would a rocky season in terms of health for Chargers running backs. While Oliver is expected to be ready for spring practices, there's no guarantee he'll be practicing with the Chargers as the 25-year-old is slated to become a restricted free agent following the conclusion of the 2016 season.

Chargers' Branden Oliver: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Oliver (Achilles) was placed on IR by the Chargers.

With Oliver, who injured his Achilles during Sunday's preseason game in Minnesota now on IR, the Chargers' running back depth behind Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead takes a pretty tough hit. The team's current options on that front are Kenneth Farrow and Gus Johnson, but another option could be added in the next few days.

Chargers' Branden Oliver: Expected to miss extended time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver (Achilles) is expected to miss an extended period of time, the Chargers' official site reports.

Previously slated to work as San Diego's No. 3 running back, Oliver may have suffered a torn Achilles during Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings. Despite his spot on the depth chart, he actually had a important role in the San Diego offense, capable of replacing both early-down runner Melvin Gordon and passing-down back Danny Woodhead. The Chargers will now look to Dreamius Smith and/or Kenneth Farrow at the bottom of the depth chart. Smith had 13 carries for 31 yards and three catches for 30 yards (four targets) in Sunday's game, whereas Farrow didn't record a touch.

Chargers' Branden Oliver: Carted off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Oliver was carted off the field during Sunday's preseason game against the Vikings with a right Achilles' injury.

At first glance, this doesn't look good for Oliver, who entered the game as the team's No. 3 back behind Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead. If he's forced to miss time, Dreamius Smith and Kenneth Farrow are next up on the team's depth chart, though with NFL cut-downs looming, there figures to be some other options for the Chargers to consider.

Chargers' Branden Oliver: Limited work in preseason loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Oliver ran the ball three times for 19 yards in the Chargers' preseason loss to the Titans.

Oliver did manage to bust open a 12-yard run, but that was about all for the 25-year-old who, like a handful of other key players, didn't play much in the opening preseason game. Oliver, who missed eight games with a turf toe injury last season, still figures to be the primary backup for Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead, so long as he can stay healthy, but competition is present in the form of undrafted rookie Kenneth Farrow, who finished Saturday's contest with 60 rushing yards on 16 carries.
