Melvin Gordon
News
Gordon (knee) said Thursday that his rehabilitation is "going well" and believes he'll be healthy in "two months," the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Gordon missed the final two games of his rookie campaign due to a knee injury, which was remedied via surgery with noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews on Jan. 5. While neither the nature of the ailment nor the procedure were revealed, Gordon is on pace to be ready for the opening of the offseason program in April. Once the fall arrives, he'll be aiming to bounce back from a subpar season in which he posted 184 rushes for 641 yards (3.5 YPC), 33 catches (on 37 targets) for 192 yards, and no touchdowns.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Darrell Stuckey
News
Weddle (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union Tribune reports.

This seemed like a mere formality after Weddle was unable to practice Wednesday. Darrell Stuckey will likely see additional work at free safety in place of Weddle.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Denzel Perryman
News
Perryman has six tackles in the season finale at Denver.

Perryman finished his rookie season with 73 total tackles, two sacks, and one forced fumble. Perryman dealt with a pectoral injury early in the season and did not become a starter until well into November, but still amassed some solid numbers in his first NFL season. Expect him to be a key member of this unit in 2016 and beyond.

Nick Dzubnar
No Updates
Orlando Franklin
News
Orlando Franklin (ankle) has been ruled out for the Chargers' game against the Steelers on Monday.

With D.J. Fluker (ankle) also questionable for Monday's game, it's unclear who will get the start at either guard position against the Steelers, further clouting Melvin Gordon's fantasy value this week.

Tourek Williams
News
Chargers linebacker Tourek Williams, who left Thursday's preseason game with an injury and was walking on crutches afterward, suffered a broken foot and will need surgery, according to NFL.com. 

By most accounts, Williams was one of the team's most improved players in training camp, so the injury is a big blow to the third-year pro, who had registered 31 tackles and one sack so far in the NFL. 

Injury
Foot - IR. Out for season
Antonio Gates
News
Gates secured three of five targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Broncos.

The 13-year veteran closed out the season on a positive note, recording his first touchdown reception since Week 12 versus the Jaguars. After a fast start to a season that began in Week 5 due to his four-game suspension for violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, Gates dealt with hip and knee injuries that appeared to slow down his 35-year-old body for a stretch of time. He rebounded nicely with 76-and-88-yard receiving efforts in Weeks 14 and 15, respectively, before finishing out the campaign in relatively quiet fashion. Over the final two contests, Gates secured five of seven targets for 45 yards, along with his aforementioned Week 17 touchdown. Despite the late-season downturn, the former Pro Bowler appeared to show enough at various points in the season to indicate that he can still serve as a borderline-No.1 tight end, or as the savvy veteran component of a two-tight end system. Whether his playing opportunity will come with the Chargers in 2016 is currently very much in the air, as Gates heads into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Isaiah Burse
News
The Broncos have promoted kicker Brandon McManus from their practice squad to the 53-man active roster and released punt returner Isaiah Burse on Saturday, according to the Denver Post.

McManus lost his job to Connor Barth in Week 13, after connecting on just 9 of 13 field goal attempts this season. Barth is expected to continue handling field goal duties, while McManus is expected to handle kickoffs for the Broncos.

Chris Hairston
News
Offensive lineman Chris Hairston announced via his Instagram that he has signed with the Chargers, per the San Diego Union-Tribune

Hairston, 25, has started 15 games in the NFL with the Bills. The Chargers are looking for a swing tackle and offensive line coach Joe D'Alessandris has familiarity with him from his time with the Bills.

The three-year veteran has played at both the left and right tackle positions and will provide depth for San Diego along the line. 

Keith Lewis
News
The Buccaneers made a slew of moves Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Tampa Bay cut the following players: DB Marc Anthony, LB Nate Askew, OL Edawn Coughman, CB Kip Edwards, DE T.J. Fatinikun, CB Anthony Gaitor, LB Ka'Lial Glaud, CB Keith Lewis, OL Jamon Meredith, OL Andrew Miller, FB Lonnie Pryor, OL Jeremiah Warren, K Connor Barth, DE Larry English, RB Jeff Demps, QB Mike Kafka and SS Major Wright.
Tyrell Williams
News
Williams had two receptions on five targets for 90 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's season-ending loss at Denver.

Williams was promoted from the practice squad earlier this season as the team's wide receiver corps were decimated by injuries, but he did not record a catch until an 80-yard touchdown grab in the fourth quarter of the final game of the regular season. The experience will be helpful for Williams Heading into 2016, but he figures to have several names ahead of him on the depth chart and a roster spot is certainly not assured.

Steve Johnson
News
After missing the final four games of the regular season, Johnson finished 2015 with 45 catches for 497 yards and three touchdowns in ten games.

Johnson missed a total of six games because a hamstring injury caused him to miss Weeks 5 and 6 in addition to missing the last four games of the year due to a groin injury. When he was healthy, he was a productive slot receiver who would typically make four or five catches per game on a good passing team. Johnson should be back for more of the same in 2016.

Jason Verrett
News
Verrett (hamstring) is inactive Sunday against the Broncos.

Despite putting in a limited practice on Friday, Verrett will be forced to miss the season finale. in his absence, Patrick Robinson will likely see extensive work at right cornerback. This is potentially a massive upgrade for Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

Corey Liuget
News
Liuget (foot) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, ESPN's Eric Williams reports.

Liuget recorded 34 tackles (28 solo) and 3 sacks before injuring his foot in a Week 13 contest against the Broncos -- an injury that will end his season. The team activated defensive lineman Darius Philon (hip) from the injured reserve/designated to return list to replace Liuget.

Ricardo Mathews
News
The Chargers have agreed to terms with center Trevor Robinson and defensive end Ricardo Mathews, per the team.

Robinson was signed off of the Bengals' practice squad in 2014 after the Chargers suffered multiple injuries at the center position. He played in three games while starting one.

Mathews, a former Colt with whom general manager Tom Telesco had ties to, was signed prior to the first game of the 2014 season. The sixth-year veteran played in 12 games last year, totaling 21 total tackles, two forced fumbles and 1.5 sacks.

Dreamius Smith
No Updates
David Johnson
News
Johnson finished the 2015 season with only one reception for four yards and does not figure to be much of a factor in 2016 either.

Johnson was signed before the 2014 season as a blocking tight end and fullback, and he could very well return to a similar role in 2016, but he just does not touch the ball on offense at all.

Javontee Herndon
News
Herndon had three receptions on four targets for 18 yards in the season finale at Denver.

Herndon finished the year with a total of 24 receptions for 195 yards and did not score a touchdown. The release of Jacoby Jones and season-ending injury to Keenan Allen in November paved the way for Herndon to be promoted from the practice squad, and he handled kick and punt returns and also chipped in as a pass-catcher down the stretch. Still, it remains to be seen whether or not he made enough of an impression to earn a roster spot when the 2016 season rolls around.

Melvin Ingram
News
2015 was Ingram's best year as a pro as he logged 65 total tackles and 10.5 sacks while playing in all 16 games.

Injuries in both 2013 and 2014 limited Ingram's early development, but he broke out in a big way in 2015. In addition to all of the tackles and sacks, Ingram also showed his versatility by adding six passes defensed and three forced fumbles. The Chargers had a very disappointing season overall, but the Ingram was one of the few bright spots, and he should be even better in 2016.

Sean McGrath
News
McGrath was waived by the Chargers on Saturday.

McGrath was waived in order to promote Tyrell Williams off the practice squad, a player who will give San Diego much-needed depth at the wide receiver position.

Malcom Floyd
News
Floyd suffered a concussion during Sunday's loss to the Broncos, Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

This was an unfortunate reminder of why Floyd decided that Sunday's game would be his last. He's still capable of contributing as a blocker and big-play threat, but his history of head and neck issues was already a major concern. It's unclear what San Diego's receiving corps will look like in 2015, as the only sure thing is that Keenan Allen (kidney) will be the No. 1 wideout. Stevie Johnson (groin) and Dontrelle Inman are also under contract, whereas tight ends Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green can both become unrestricted free agents. The Chargers may search for an external solution to replace Floyd in the No. 2 wideout role, as neither Johnson nor Inman was particularly impressive this season.

Brock Hekking
Injury
Undisclosed - IR. Out for season
Michael Huey
No Updates
Josh Lambo
News
Lambo was perfect in the season-ending loss at Denver, going two for two on field goal attempts and hitting both of his extra point attempts.

Lambo finished his rookie season with 106 points scored, hitting 26 out of 32 field goal attempts in 16 games. He also did well on kickoffs and generally did not make the Bolts regret cutting ties with Nick Novak in the preseason. He should continue to handle kicking duties in 2016.

Tenny Palepoi
News
The Chargers announced Monday that defensive lineman Tenny Palepoi, who played in all 16 games as a rookie, is out for the season with a fractured foot, per the team. 

Palepoi was placed on the Reserved-Injured list, effectively ending his season. The undrafted player from Utah was one of the Chargers' biggest surprises last season, registering four tackles for loss last season. 

"He's made the most out of every single opportunity he's had," Chargers coach Mike McCoy said. "He had an outstanding year last year, and it sucks to be honest with you."

Injury
Foot - IR. Out for season
Dontrelle Inman
News
Inman caught three of six targets for 25 yards in Sunday's season-ending loss at Denver.

Inman was fairly productive for San Diego down the stretch as they dealt with multiple injuries to nearly all of their top wide outs. He finished the season with 35 catches for 486 yards and three touchdowns and figures to have earned a shot to contribute again in 2016.

Chuka Ndulue
No Updates
Damion Square
News
The Chargers listed running back Ryan Mathews and wide receiver Keenan Allen as inactive for Week 17’s game against the Chiefs.

Mathews is nursing an ankle injury, while Allen is suffering from an ankle and shoulder injury.

Other players listed as inactive included Mike Scifres, Damion Square, Greg Ducre, Ryan Carrethers and Cordarro Law .

Danny Woodhead
News
Woodhead gained 11 yards on five carries and secured eight of 10 targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Broncos.

One week after gaining five yards per carry against the Raiders, Woodhead struggled to find any running room against a stout Broncos front. He also recorded eight catches for the second straight week, and managed at least 50 yards receiving in each of the season's last three games. With 2015 first-round pick Melvin Gordon having significantly underwhelmed in his first season, Woodhead proved to be a invaluable component of the Chargers running game and to an even greater extent, their short-range passing attack. His pass-catching prowess allowed San Diego to often replace an absymal ground attack with short throws to Woodhead that were both safe and often productive. The eight-year veteran received a career-high 96 targets and equaled a career-best six receiving touchdowns. Under contract through the end of next season, Woodhead figures to once again be an important component of the Chargers' offensive attack in 2016.

Kavell Conner
News
The Chargers will have all their probables Week 8 against the Broncos.

Kavell Conner, D.J. Fluker, Dwight Freeney and Rich Ohrnberger will all see action during the contest. Both Conner and Fluker are dealing with ankle injuries. Freeney has a knee issue and Ohrnberger is dealing with a back injury.

Manti Te'o
News
Te'o had seven total tackles and forced a fumble in a losing effort in the season finale at Denver.

Te'o finished a solid season with 83 tackles, 0.5 sacks, one interception and one forced fumble in 12 games. Te'o has become a key contributor on a promising young defensive unit and figures to continue to make strides in 2016.

Kendall Reyes
News
Several Chargers who were on the injury report are active for the game at Denver, including offensive tackles King Dunlap (ankle) and D.J. Fluker (ankle), center Nick Hardwick (neck/concussion), defensive end Kendall Reyes (ankle) and safety Eric Weddle (hamstring).
Donald Brown
News
Brown gained 81 yards on 21 carries and secured two of three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Broncos.

After a run-in with a suffocating Raiders run defense in Week 16, the seven-year veteran bounced back with a productive effort and led the Chargers in rushing for the second time in the last three games. Brown scuffled to a 1.2 yards per carry average versus Oakland, but found enough running room Sunday to average almost four yards per tote and break off a game-long 20-yard run. Now a free agent, it remains to be seen if San Diego will bring back Brown as veteran insurance in 2016. First-round rookie looked like a bust before going on injured reserve late in the season, and Danny Woodhead still projects best as a dynamic pass-catching back that carries the ball sparingly in an ideal situation. Meanwhile, Brown offers a skill set that combines many of the traits of a conventional feature back and Woodhead's receiving ability, which may help carve out a place for him in the San Diego backfield heading into the Chargers' 2016 training camp.

Donald Butler
News
Chargers linebacker Donald Butler revealed Monday that he underwent surgeries sometime during the offseason, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune.

"I had a couple of surgeries," Butler said. "I got those out of the way."

Butler refused to elaborate on the type of surgery he underwent. His season ended in Game 14 last season after he suffered a dislocated elbow.

"The reason why I played bad was, I just played bad," he said. "It happens."

Cordarro Law
News
The Chargers listed running back Ryan Mathews and wide receiver Keenan Allen as inactive for Week 17’s game against the Chiefs.

Mathews is nursing an ankle injury, while Allen is suffering from an ankle and shoulder injury.

Other players listed as inactive included Mike Scifres, Damion Square, Greg Ducre, Ryan Carrethers and Cordarro Law .

Eric Weddle
News
Weddle (groin) will be placed on injured reserve, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The report also speculates that Weddle has played his last game as a Charger, with his contract set to expire after the season. While the team will have enough cap room to keep him around, it's no secret that the relationship between the two parties soured due to Weddle's displeasure with the organization's offers when he sought an extension before the season. Set to turn 31 next week, he'd undoubtedly be one of the top free agents available, even in the wake of a disappointing season.

Mathews is nursing an ankle injury, while Allen is suffering from an ankle and shoulder injury.

Other players listed as inactive included Mike Scifres, Damion Square, Greg Ducre, Ryan Carrethers and Cordarro Law .

John Phillips
News
Phillips finished the 2015 regular season with a total of 10 receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown.

Phillips has always been used as a blocking tight end first and foremost, and 2015 was no different. The only time he was even a little bit productive was early in the year when Antonio Gates was still serving a four-game suspension and Ladarius Green was dealing with a concussion. Looking ahead to 2016, it remains to be seen which tight ends the Bolts will bring back, but they do seem to value Phillips' blocking abilities.

Cassius Vaughn
News
Vaughn was released by the Ravens on Tuesday.

The Ravens were in need of help at the tight end position, so they decided to release Vaughn to open up a spot on the 53-man roster. Vaughn has been both signed and released by the Ravens twice since May, so he could return to the team before the season comes to a close.

Philip Rivers
News
Rivers completed 21 of 35 passes for 228 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Broncos. He also threw an interception and gained five yards on two rushes.

The 34-year-old finished off the season in relatively quiet fashion, no small surprise considering the decimated condition of his receiving corps. After Malcolm Floyd exited his final game early with a concussion, Rivers was once again down to rookies Tyrell Williams and Javontee Herndon, and second-year pro Dontrelle Inman, as his primary receivers. Factoring in that pass-catchers Keenan Allen, Stevie Johnson and Antonio Gates all missed significant time either to injuries or suspension in 2015, Rivers' 4,792 yards passing on the season impressively qualifies as his highest total in 12 seasons, while his 29:12 TD:INT ratio also qualifies as one of the best of his career.

Steve Williams
News
Williams (concussion) is active for Sunday's game at Kansas City.

Williams is expected to start in place of Brandon Flowers, who was placed on injured reserve earlier this week.

Brandon Flowers
News
Flowers was placed on injured reserve Saturday, ESPN's Eric Williams reports.

The injuries just keep coming for the Chargers. Flowers, a key cog in the team's defense, will join Corey Liueget on the sidelines after the team opted to place both players on IR. Steve Williams or Greg Ducre will likely get the start in place of Flowers.

Joe Barksdale
News
The Chargers have reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year deal with offensive lineman Joe Barksdale. The deal includes a $350K signing bonus and $1 million in incentives, according to U-T San Diego.

Barksdale spent the last three seasons with Rams, and started all 16 games, making one tackle in 2014. 

Keenan Allen
News
Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (kidney) may miss the rest of the season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Allen hasn't undergone surgery on his kidney, but he did have some type of non-surgical procedure. The Chargers already made it clear that their top wideout will miss some time, following an early exit from Sunday's game against the Ravens. Owners will likely want to hold on to Allen until there's something more definitive, but it does make sense to prepare for the possibility that he won't be back this season.

Mathews is nursing an ankle injury, while Allen is suffering from an ankle and shoulder injury.

Adrian Phillips
News
The Chargers announced offensive lineman Jeremiah Sirles has been promoted from the team’s practice squad to its 53-man roster. To make room for Sirles, the Chargers released defensive back Adrian Phillips
Ben Gardner
News
The Cowboys got down to the 75-man roster limit Tuesday. They waived receiver Chris Boyd, punter Tom Hornsey, long snapper Casey Kreiter, defensive end Adewale Ojomo and guard Wayne Tribue, and released quarterback Caleb Hanie.

Dallas waived these players with injury designations: tight end Jordan Najvar, safety Matt Johnson, cornerbacks Justin Green and Johnny Thomas, and linebacker DeVonte Holloman. Defensive end Ben Gardner was placed on IR, and defensive tackle Amobi Okoye was put on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list.

Branden Oliver
News
Oliver -- who is dealing with turf toe -- was on crutches, with his right foot in a protective boot Monday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

If Oliver is forced to miss time, Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead should pick up some extra snaps in the Chargers' backfield, with Donald Brown a candidate to be activated for next Monday's game against the Bears.

Ladarius Green
News
Green (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Monday afternoon.

Bothered by his ankle since Week 8, Green will miss the final game of the season, finishing with 37 catches for 429 yards and four touchdowns in 13 appearances. Both he and Antonio Gates are slated to become free agents, and it will be surprising if the team retains both players. Wherever he might end up, Green should have the opportunity to earn targets on a more consistent basis.

News
The Chargers have designated eight players as probable for the game Sunday against the Bengals, including running back Ryan Mathews and tight end Antonio Gates, both of whom are nursing hamstring injuries.

The others are wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu (hamstring), tackle D.J. Fluker (knee), defensive ends Corey Liuget (shin) and Lawrence Guy (toe), center Nick Hardwick (neck) and long snapper Mike Windt (ankle).

Patrick Robinson
News

Joe Mays
News

Chris Watt
News
With longtime Chargers center Nick Hardwick retiring this week, the team will look to Chris Watt to replace him, reports ESPN.com. Watt started five games as a rookie and played in 12 overall, including some time at guard.

“You just don’t plug a guy in and figure he’s going to fill [Hardwick’s] shoes right away,” general manager Tom Telesco said. “We’re happy with the guys we have, but no one is going to walk in and be Nick Hardwick on Day 1. And we’re not asking them to do that.”

Offensive line coach Joe D'Alessandris said he's looking forward to watching Watt develop.

"I think he has a lot of great qualities as an offensive lineman," D'Alessandris said. "He’s got a good mind. He wants to grow. He’s a sponge. He wants to absorb and learn.”

Injury
Sean Lissemore
News
Lissemore (shoulder) is officially inactive for Sunday's game at Kansas City.

This is terrible news for a defense that has been slammed with injuries this year. With Corey Liuget being placed on injured reserve earlier this week, look for Ryan Carrethers and Ricardo Mathews to see more time on the defensive front.

Injury
Shoulder - IR. Out for season
Jeremiah Attaochu
News
Attaochu played in 15 games in 2015 and notched 55 total tackles and six sacks.

Attaochu is one of a number of standouts on a young and improving defense in San Diego along with Manti Te'o, Melvin Ingram, and Denzel Perryman. He made a nice jump in all statistical categories in his second season as a pro and will look to build on that momentum in year three in 2016.

Jahleel Addae
News
Addae played in 13 games in 2015, amassing 65 total tackles and one sack.

The season was a little bit of a disappointment for Addae who was projected to push for triple digit tackles based on his 2014 numbers, but he should return to a starting role again in 2016.

Asante Cleveland
News
The Patriots have promoted Cleveland from their practice squad to the team's active roster, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Cleveland will bolster the Patriots' depth at tight end in advance of Sunday's game against the Broncos, with Michael Williams having been limited at practice this week with a knee issue.

D.J. Fluker
News
Chargers right guard D.J. Fluker suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday's season opener against the Lions, according to NFL Network. He will undergo an MRI on Monday, but it is believed he will miss 4-6 weeks.

Johnnie Troutman, who is in his third season in the NFL out of Penn State, is listed as Fluker's backup on the unofficial depth chart.

J.D. Walton
News
Center J.D. Walton has signed with the Dolphins, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Walton, 27, spent four years taking snaps for the Broncos before spending time with the Redskins and Giants. He started all 16 games for the Giants in 2014.

Kellen Clemens
News
Clemens finished the 2015 season with a total of six pass attempts in relief of Philip Rivers, who started all 16 games.

Philip Rivers still has not missed a game since taking over as the starter in 2006, so Clemens was obviously not needed for much this season. In the one games in which he actually saw real action in relief, he went five-for-six for 63 yards and a touchdown, proving that he can be a capable passer if needed. Expect the Chargers to bring him back again in 2016.

Kenny Wiggins
News
The loss of D.J. Fluker to injury has prompted the Chargers to sign fellow offensive lineman Kenny Wiggins and waive tight end Kyle Miller, the San Diego Union-Tribune has reported.

Wiggins played the last two seasons with San Diego. Miller, who was claimed in the spring, has played in just two NFL games over five seasons. He has yet to catch a pass.

Trevor Robinson
News
The Chargers have agreed to terms with center Trevor Robinson and defensive end Ricardo Mathews, per the team.

Robinson was signed off of the Bengals' practice squad in 2014 after the Chargers suffered multiple injuries at the center position. He played in three games while starting one.

Mathews, a former Colt with whom general manager Tom Telesco had ties to, was signed prior to the first game of the 2014 season. The sixth-year veteran played in 12 games last year, totaling 21 total tackles, two forced fumbles and 1.5 sacks.
