Melvin Gordon
News
Gordon (knee) is participating in individual drills at the start of OTAs, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Ahead of schedule in his recovery from January microfracture surgery, Gordon may be limited during OTAs, but he hopes to be a full participant at June minicamp. He's a clear favorite to handle most of the early-down workload, but both Danny Woodhead and Branden Oliver represent serious competition for snaps and touches. The San Diego offense operated best last season when it abandoned the run and used Woodhead over Gordon. This may have partially been due to questionable running by the rookie, but a slew of injuries on the offensive line was likely the bigger factor. Improved health up front would at least give Gordon the opportunity to break out, though he still needs to prove that he brings more than straight-line speed to the table.

Injury
Knee - Probable for start of training camp
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.

Matt Weiser
No Updates
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.

Dwight Lowery
News
Lowery signed a three-year contract Wednesday with the Chargers, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Lowery set a career-high in interceptions (4) during his lone season with the Colts and was able to tally 76 tackles to boot. With the Chargers expecting veteran leader Eric Weddle to leave via free agency, Lowery is expected to take over his role at free safety alongside projected starter Jaheel Addae, although the team might not be done adding pieces to their secondary.

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.

Tyler Marcordes
No Updates
Travis Benjamin
News
Benjamin has agreed to join the Chargers, Rand Getlin of NFL Network reports.

Benjamin will head to San Diego after a breakout year in Cleveland that saw him catch 68 passes for 966 yards and score five touchdowns. He will slot in as the No. 2 receiver behind Keenan Allen and give Philip Rivers a reliable big-play wideout. Benjamin has also averaged 12.6 yards per punt return while taking three punts to the house in his career, so he figures to assume those duties for the Chargers as well.

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. 

Antonio Gates
News
The Chargers have agreed to terms on a two-year extension to keep Gates with the team, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Gates, who turns 36 in June, will thus return for a 14th season with the Chargers, after catching 56 passes for 630 yards and five TDs in 11 games in 2015. Meanwhile, it's unclear if fellow tight end Ladarius Green will return to the team, but in any case, when healthy, Gates remains an integral part of the team's passing offense and on the fantasy radar.

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. 

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.

Injury
Groin - Probable for start of training camp
Jason Verrett
News
Verrett (hamstring) has begun working out with fellow Chargers teammates, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

Verrett, who missed the Chargers final game of the regular season due to a hamstring injury, was spotted working out with a few members of the secondary at a training facility in California. San Diego's leader in interceptions last year, Verrett is expected to take over more of a leadership role on defense with veteran captain Eric Weddle widely expected to sign with another team during the offseason.

Injury
Hamstring - Probable for start of season
Corey Liuget
News
Liuget is feeling "much better" after he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in December, Micahel Gehlken of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Liuget had tallied 34 tackles (28 solo) and three sacks before his Week 13 injury against the Broncos. The 26-year-old, who signed a five-year extension prior to last year's training camp, reportedly weighed between 313-315 pounds throughout the 2015 season, but is expecting to cut his weight down to 295 by the season opener. With the Chargers selecting Joey Bosa with the third overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Liuget and Bosa could form an impressive duo on the defensive line capable of wreaking havoc on opposing offenses should both players stay healthy.

Injury
Foot - Probable for start of season

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.

Matt Slauson
News
The Bears placed guard Matt Slauson on injured reserve Saturday and promoted tight end Blake Annen to the active roster.

Slauson tore a pectoral muscle a few weeks ago and was ruled out for the season in late October. The move opened up a roster spot for Annen, who may be active Sunday if Martellus Bennett (rib, questionable) is unable to go.

Carlos Wray
No Updates
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
Zach Mettenberger
News
Mettenberger was claimed off of waivers by the Chargers on Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Mettenberger now heads to San Diego to reunite with former head coach and current offensive coordinator of the Chargers, Ken Whisenhunt. The 24-year-old was waived by the Titans on Monday after two seasons with the team in which he started 10 games. He'll compete with veteran Kellen Clemens for the number two spot on the depth chart behind Philip Rivers.

Chris Landrum

Kenneth Farrow

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."

Dontrelle Inman
News
Inman signed an Exclusive Rights Free Agent deal with the Chargers on Friday.

Inman's only option was to re-sign with the Chargers, and now the move has been made official. While he was somewhat productive with the Chargers in 2015 (35 catches for 486 yards and three touchdowns), Keenan Allen's (kidney) return to health and the free agent signing of Travis Benjamin likely limits any upside heading into the 2016 campaign.

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 .

DeAndre Reaves
No Updates
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.

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.

Casey Hayward
News
Hayward has signed a three-year deal with the Chargers, ESPN.com reports.

Hayward -- who recorded 65 tackles in 16 games for the Packers last season -- gives the Chargers some added depth at cornerback behind Jason Verrett and Brandon Flowers, with Patrick Robinson a candidate to leave the team as a free agent.

Donald Butler
News
The Chargers released Butler on Thursday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Butler's production dwindled as the season proceeded, with no more than one tackle on the ledger in all but one of the Chargers' last eight games. Overall, he totaled 43 tackles (24 solo), one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and a half sack in the first complete 16-game slate since his first in 2011. Expect the 27-year-old to land in another organization to provide depth at inside linebacker, at the very least.

Kasey Redfern
News
The Jaguars have pared down their roster to 53 on Saturday by cutting 20 players.

The players on that list are: C Michael Brewster, G Drew Nowak, DE Gerald Rivers, QB Ricky Stanzi, WR Chad Bumphis, FB Eric Kettani, TE Brandon Barden, OT Cody Booth, DL Deandre Coleman, DT Ricky Heimuli, S Craig Loston, QB Stephen Morris, K/P Kasey Redfern, G Tyler Shatley, TE D.J. Tialavea, LB Marcus Whitfield, WR Kerry Taylor, S Sherrod Martin, LB Nate Stupar and CB Jamell Fleming.

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 (knee) is healthy after ending the season on IR, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Flowers failed to record a single interception last season, the first time he hasn't recorded at least one takeaway in his six-year career. Couple that with the fact that he registered just 33 tackles (29 solo), and it's fair to say Flowers is coming off his worst season as a pro. However, following an offseason in which the 30-year-old corner reportedly trimmed 10-12 pounds off his frame and appears completely healthy following a nagging knee injury that caused him to miss the final four games of the regular season, Flowers looks to be on the upswing heading into the new year. Even with Casey Hayward joining the secondary via free agency, Flowers is still expected to start opposite Jason Verrett and could be a good candidate to rebound should he stay healthy.

Injury
Knee - Probable for start of season
Jeff Cumberland
News
The Chargers and Cumberland agreed to a one-year contract Monday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Cumberland joins a tight-end group composed entirely of undrafted free agents, though the leader of the corps is among the top receiving TE in NFL history (Antonio Gates). As the second-most experienced body, Cumberland is coming off a campaign in which he recorded five catches (on 13 targets) for 77 yards with the Jets. It's difficult to project a significant role for the soon-to-be 29-year-old in 2016.

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
Allen (kidney) will kick off the Chargers' offseason program Monday as a full participant, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. "I feel 100 percent," he said this past week. "I have no aches, no pains. The kidney healed up really well. I've just been working. Ready."

Allen's 2015 campaign came to an abrupt end when he lacerated his kidney on a touchdown grab in Week 8. Prior to the season-ending injury, he had established as a PPR maven, notching double-digit catches three times in eight contests en route to 67 catches (on 89 targets) for 725 yards and four touchdowns. With Allen on the field, the Chargers boasted the No. 1 offense, averaging 423.3 total yards per game. As a result, he'll be a welcome presence for Philip Rivers and fantasy owners alike.

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
Chargers running backs coach Ollie Wilson expects Oliver (turf toe) to have a big role in 2016, the Chargers' official website reports.

Oliver, a 2014 UDFA, seems to have made a full recovery from the toe injury that landed him on IR after eight games. Melvin Gordon (knee) and Danny Woodhead figure to get most of the snaps, but Oliver could also mix in. His roster spot appears secure, and he might eventually challenge for a leading role if Gordon isn't up to the task. It's also worth noting that Gordon is still recovering from January microfracture surgery, though he is expected to be ready for training camp.

Hunter Henry
News
The Chargers selected Henry in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 35th overall.

The Chargers lost Ladarius Green in free agency, and Antonio Gates will turn 36 in June. Given those facts, it's easy to understand why the Chargers would covet Henry, the consensus top tight end in the draft. While Henry doesn't boast obvious star potential, he heads into the NFL as an accomplished pass catcher and experienced blocker. Timed around the 4.7-second range in the 40-yard dash at 6-foot-5, 250 pounds, Henry has the athleticism and size to turn into a standout fantasy tight end a couple years from now.

Mike Windt
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).

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.”

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.

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
The Chargers and Addae agreed to a contract Thursday, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.

An undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan in 2013, Addae settled into a starting role this past season, accruing 65 tackles (55 solo), one sack, and one fumble recovery in 13 games. If he's ever able to achieve a full allotment of snaps, triple-digit tackles isn't out of the question over the course of the 16-game slate.

Brandon Mebane
News
Mebane has signed with the Chargers, the Seattle Times reports.

Per the report, Mebane's three-year deal with the Chargers is worth up to $13.5 million. The veteran nose tackle -- who recorded 24 tackles and 1.5 sacks for Seattle in 15 games last season -- isn't much of an IDP factor, but he'll provide a welcome boost to the Chargers' defense in terms of his ability as a run-stuffer.

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

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.

J.D. Walton

Kellen Clemens
News
Clemens signed a one-year deal to remain with the Chargers, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Clemens is 6-9 with 73 yards and a touchdown in relief of Phillip Rivers over the past two seasons. The Chargers will keep him around as a veteran who knows the offense just in case Rivers goes down at some point.

Kenny Wiggins

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

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.
